Very good use of repetition here!
Oh, I love the analogy! Well done.
Nice devotional feel. Good work.
Well done. A very good analogy and well-written.
Great analogy! I especially liked "wallpaper over the emptiness..." How original, and yet sadly true.
Enjoyed your devotional and the way you presented it. I especially liked your concluding paragraph. Right on and of course, write on : )
Enjoyed your devotional piece. Good writing - Thanks.

Nice job! I enjoyed the read and the way the repeated lines carried more emphasis to this piece.
Great devotional.
Please don't apologize for this wonderful devotional. Loved the continuation of dark & light throughout. You had some good thoughts.
First, move up a level, pronto, or maybe two levels. This writing is not at a beginner level.

This has terrific imagery that appeals to the senses, which always pulls the reader in.

The connecting concepts are good too--earth/house/heart. Work on expounding how these contrast and compare with each other, before and after the cleansing difference of His light.

Good for you!
I love your meaningful comparisons of the world before light to the haunted house and to humans. I'd suggest leaving off the Genesis verse at the beginning and using just the reference as a footnote. You might pull more readers in that way. Great job on this topic!
Hi Scarlett. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, In the Beginning, actually did very well in the Light and Dark Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 7th in that Level. There were a lot of entries this week, and competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so give yourself a pat on the back. :-)

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.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. Its going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
