So who won mods? I received a U2U with some info, which means that the winner and participants are being voted on.

When is the big announcement?

Also, I wanted to thank everyone who submitted. I enjoyed seeing everyones work and interpretations.

This was a load of fun and I can't wait until the results are in. There were fantastic submissions here.

Also I can't wait until the next photo edit contest begins...

While we're waiting for the results (and we know how long that can take
), I will make a public apology for my previous faux pas.

My offering for the day:

Iyar 16

Their tongue is like a sharp arrow (Jeremiah 9:7).

Some people would never physically injure another person. The sight or even the thought of violence makes them cringe. They may not realize that their words can cause more damage than their fists ever could. A physical injury eventually heals and may even be forgotten, but an insulting word can penetrate to the depths of someone's being and continue to reverberate, long after a mere physical wound would have healed.

I have seen this phenomenon in my own practice. Many children are spanked by their parents. Still, with the exception of cases of severe abuse, my patients rarely, if ever, mention the spanking as a trauma. Not so with degrading words. After thirty or more years, patients will remember having been called "stupid," "rotten," or "a no-good bum." A child who was not spanked, but was instead disciplined with shame and made to feel that he or she was a disgrace, is likely to retain that feeling for decades and may harbor an attitude of shame that affects everything that he or she does.

While we are taught to refrain from striking out in anger, we are far less restrained when it comes to verbal lashings. Whether we direct them towards spouses, children, or peers, we should be aware of the impact that words can have. The verse cited above correctly describes the tongue as a sharp, penetrating arrow, which can be every bit as lethal as any physical weapon.

Some people have a wise custom. When they become angry, they clamp their lips tightly. The anger will safely dissipate and the words which could have stung for years never come out.

Today I shall ...
... try to avoid words that may be injurious to another person.

And pictures.

I always love these contests, I really do. Whether I ever really have a chance of winning or not is no matter, the fun is in the participating.

But - (there's always a but) the long waiting period for the judges to arrive at a winner is killing me. (drums fingers)

So, how is the voting coming? Inquiring minds would like to know....

And The Winner Is...

First off, Apologies for the slight delay on the announcement. I've been a little delayed on getting to our judges, and now another slight delay in having the results passed onto our fine participants. But, we do have the results, and we do have a winner. This was a very close competition, and it was jumbled right from the bottom, all of the way to the top.

Below you will find a list of all participants, and your overall score from all of our judges. Keep in mind that a perfect score would be 40.

Here we go...
