Every year since this blog’s beginning we have had a Rejoice With Those Who Rejoice Party.

What exactly is it all about?

This is that great time of year when we hit contest results from American Christian Fiction Writers’ Genesis Contest. Some of you may not have gotten the results that you wanted, but we want to celebrate those who did well.

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”

Romans 12:15

With the heart of this verse in mind, today we are going to celebrate with those who are rejoicing in their Semi-Finalist Status.

Tomorrow we will weep with those that weep in our Annual Kleenex Party. Those of you who are congratulated here today, I invite you to stop back tomorrow and leave an encouraging word or verse for those who didn’t do as well as they hoped.

Leave a word of encouragement or congratulations for our Semi-Finalists!

We will be having a drawing for 2 $10 Amazon Gift Cards for those who leave a comment. Winners to be announced at tomorrow’s Kleenex Party.
