I am a cracked pot too. Thank you. Your work shows a lot of promise. Keep writing.
Lovely! I truly enjoyed this. Written in a clear, conversational style that works well with devotionals and inspirational news columns; have you done any of that?

Oh, just a nitpick: If I were you, I'd drop the last sentence in paragraph three: "I guess Im skeptical there might be anything of value to be un-earthed." Your preceding statement said it all, in a humorous picture:
"Im not so inspired as to grab a spoon and start digging in my own backyard."

Great stuff!

A wonderful, meaningful devotion! Good analogy!
Hi Kim. I couldn't leave a comment before because we were in the middle of the challenge. But now that it's over, I wanted to let you know a couple of things about your entry that I thought may help in the future. The message was very good, but there were just these couple of things that detracted from the message ... and one was a major thing. So if you could send me a private message, I'll get back to you with an explanation. Just click on the link in my name and that will take you to my member page. You can send a PM from there. Hope to hear from you. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator and Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine)
