The Window to the Soul Photo Challenge

Dear Sirs and Madams,
     I am pleased to announce that a pleasant blogger friend, Allie, and I are co-hosting a photography contest! It is called The Window to the Sould Photo Challenge, due to this Yiddish proverb...

The eyes are the windows to the soul.

Below are the rules and the buttons; go to my blog or Allie's (link above) to enter.

1. The theme is EYES; the photograph can be of anything with eyes; the more focus on the eyes, the better.

2. You can enter up to three photographs in the contest.

3. They can be edited, but please specify how if possible.

4. One way to enter is to e-mail Allie at

5. The other and likely most convenient way to enter is to post your photos on your blog, and comment on one of our blogs with the link.

6. If you do the latter method mentioned above, leave a comment on ONLY ONE of our blogs; NOT both.

7. There will be first, second, and third places, along with three honorable mentions.

8. We will judge by what pictures are the most creative, clear, picturesque, and eye-focused; NOT on favoritism toward the photographer.

9. We'd love it if you'd take one or both of the buttons,  post about the contest, and/or tell your friends!

10. Enter as soon as possible; we don't want you to forget!

11. Have Fun!!!!

12. (Lots of it!)

The contest started the 14th and ends on the 29th!
In case you are wondering about the prize, we have it planned but have not discussed whether to tell now or not is a surprise! Please enter, and as soon as possible!

About the Chat Box...

Hey again!
I just wanted to let everyone know that for the time being I removed the chat box because we had at least three or four spammer/stalker type people commenting with random links on it.
Maybe we could put it back up later but I hope you girls understood why I took it down!

Another Amazing Issue!

This is going to sound extremely unoriginal.
We totally awesomely ROCK!
I'm once again in awe of the tireless effort that everyone put into the October issue.
I sat and read EVERY last article.
It took about thirty good minutes, but it was entirely worth it. You know why?
Because every word was GLOWING with the image of Christ Jesus and His word.
And that's what counts the most. Congrats on another amazing issue, everyone!
