I love everything about this lovely story from a different viewpoint. Great description!
I loved it. It reads like a novel. I think this story will do well.
I loved the imagery, a glimpse of what a poverty-stricken widow might endure. "The kiss of God on her heart"
-what a beautiful thought!
You pulled me in right away and held me to the very end, even though I recognized the character and knew the ending. You made it fresh, like a story I've never heard. I delighted in the fantastic description. You did an excellent job of bringing in a few conflicts and resolved them beautifully.
Just read your story. You did a masterful job of describing Hannah & her circumstances. And, as a widow myself, I know we are blessed in a special way. Hannah did not go hungry. Of that I am sure. Praise God.
Just this morning our pastor preached on this very story. including the sound of the many coins of the wealthy clanking noisily and heavily into the jars, yet it was the almost soundlessness of her two coins that drew the attention of the master. Your story is so rich in detail, and is masterfully told!
Congratulations on a well earned EC placing!
Beautiful description. You did a wonderful job fleshing out a story we’ve heard countless times. A great job.
Congratulations on you well-deserved 1st place finish, Jack. Lovely descriptions and sense of purpose for your main character.
