some good lines here in this

I liked the random mixture of physical, emotional and spiritual statements. That's real life. And some of those statements were truly powerful.

I loved this poem. So very true of life. Thanks for sharing and keep writing.

Hi Deborah. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Vases, actually did very well in the Empty and Full Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 2, placing 6th in that Level. Give yourself a pat on the back! :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:
http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=25956

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

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. Itís going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement. (If Iíve already mentioned that to you, forgive me. Weíre just so excited about letting members know about this great gathering.)
