This is adorable, I can just hear the old fellow narrating this story. I love it.
I felt like one of the kids sitting near great grandpa. Listening to every word. I loved it!
Great story. We have our plans, but God always works his own instead.

Delightful. I loved the way that everyone had a bit of voice and just the interactions in the whole family. Warm! Well done.

Delightful story, try writing without so many speech tags. Put a strong lead sentence in and you have a winner.
Congrats on your win! Super Story! God does have a plan for all of us,even if we can't see it.

Congrats on your win! As others have said, I loved the message of this story... that God has a plan for each of us, even when we don't know what it is.

A big THANK YOU to the judges and to all (current and past) for your encouraging and helpful comments. I'm still a bit in shock that this placed 3rd overall & 1st in Beginners. "Evangeline" practically wrote itself. To see myself placed, however briefly, amongst others whose work I have come to admire is... unbelievable. Thank You.

Note that this story is loosely based on the true tale of the sinking of a real ship many many years ago.
