Your childhood memories sparked my own. Nice writing.
Keep going!
I enjoyed the family history and the way it was woven into a devotional.
Very good inspiration writing that held my attention and delivered with a meaningful message. Thanks for sharing.
Yes, you have a good devotional message. I can imagine your family's excitement on getting a new home, and also their despair on having to remove the trees they nurtured over the years. (I had no idea what kind of tree a pinon was until I moved to AZ 5 years ago. There were none in IA, at least where I lived.) :)
Hi Pam. I'm a week late, but wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, "Evergreen," actually did very well in the Up and Down Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 12th in that Level. There were a lot of entries for this topic, and competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so well done.

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Again, well done! :-)

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
