As it turns out, nobody voted on their favorites for the challenges this time, so I’m doing things a little bit differently with these current ones.
For the Grasshopper Meets Worm Poetry Challenge, I am declaring all 3 entries winners. You can see them all by clicking this link:
For the Name That Abstract #4, here were the 4 names submitted:
Wildflowers in Darkness – submitted by Diane at Hometogo232
Devil Comes A-Callin’ – submitted by Sandy at LBTK
Stopping to Smell the Flowers –
Bird in the Bush – both submitted by Eunice at Living and Lovin
I thought all the names submitted were great, and I thank you all, Diane, Sandy and Eunice for your entries. Again, with no votes for favorites, I’m declaring a tie between all 4 names. You can also see them all by clicking the above link. For the actual name of the abstract, I have chosen one of my own this time, given the tie. This name is based largely on this past week and what it’s been like for me, as well as just my thoughts about life in general, and how there truly is beauty amid the shadows of life. Therefore, I chose the name, Beauty Grows Amid Shadows.
I don’t have another abstract right now for the Name That Abstract #5, and have several things I need to do here at home today. I also don’t have a poem to go along with the Beauty Grows Amid Shadows abstract, to start that off. So I ask you for your patience with this, and I will come back and get both of those going when I’m able.
Thank you all who participated. I really do hope that as time goes on more people will…but I also know that I need to get the rules down pat and I kind of messed up with that this time, which may have confused some people.
I have to get off here now and get to some housework! Love and blessings to you all,
