Lovely first person account; I could feel this woman's frustration.

There were a few anachronisms or cliches: I caught 'obstacle course', 'short-lived marriage', and 'life flashed before me' which sort of clashed with the setting.

There's a famous poem with this title, by the way.

This was excellent in its portrayal of the relationship between Abigail and her mother, and of the Healer. Very, very nice.

I really enjoyed reading this first person account. You did a great job of portraying the relationships and hardships, as well as the miracle, of this woman's plight.
Sooo beautiful! The little girl's desperation, the touch of His hand. The line "every nerve extended to respond to this connection" wow! What an experience. I pray the Lord continues to bless your writing ability for Him!!
Hi Judy. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, The Touch of the Master's Hands, 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 2, placing 8th in that Level. You deserve 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. It’s going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
