So proud of you and your accomplishment. I entered the contest last year and did not make the cut. I will enter again next year when I have some time to work on what I have to say... :) Making the finals is incredible - PROUD, PROUD of you. :) Hard to believe it has been YEARS since I sat in Lena's living room with all amazing writers tapping out their dreams on the keyboards and God's Heart! :)
