Oh! Beautifully written! I love that God does not measure things according to the worlds standards, but that He looks at our hearts. Thank you so much for sharing!
As someone who has experienced similar frustrations with a small church, I could really relate to this well-written piece.
Ohh, I like this! Sometimes I'd like to be going to a small church. I love our large one but unless you get involved in small groups a person kind of gets a bit lost in the crowd. Very well written and the descriptions and dialogue were great! Keep on writing! God bless!!
I was my pastor's first secretary. When he began preaching if he had not had five children the congregation would have six also.

I love your story. God is so good to us all the time.
Great job on your article! You really get the point across.
The simple truth. I enjoyed your story very much.
Such a good reminder to give thanks. We tend to see all that is wrong and forget all that we've been blessed with. Thank you.
i love some of your descriptive phrases "beautiful postcard town into a smeared canvas of gloomy gray. " quite poetric in fact and the bit about the chair with the duct tape. I felt you really "knew" the caracter you were describing. I liked the chatty warm coversation with the Lord as well.
Hi Pat. I just wanted to leave a quick note to congratulate you on your 2nd place win in Level 1, and to let you know you also did extremely well overall, ranking 32nd out of all the entries for the week.

It was a big week of entries, so you really deserve an extra pat on the back. If you would like to see the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.
Again, well done. :-)

Time to move up to Level 2.

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August. It’s going to be an amazing time of inspiration, information and encouragement.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
