That must have been quite a reunion--and I would've dreaded it and been nervous, too, if I'd been Jacob.
Writing about stories from the Bible is one of my favorite kinds of writing and I enjoyed reading this one. It was great that you thought about this for the Family Reunion topic. I found that when doing this kind of writing it helps to add a bit of detail using your imagination. This is perfectly acceptable, since everyone knows it is a fictional story based on the Bible. For instnace, a little more detail in Jacob's feelings of dread--rapidly beating heart, beads of perspiration, etc. How do you think he felt when wrestling with the angel? You might want to think about ways to add more when you do this type of writing. Again, it was a perfect example of the assigned topic. Nice work!
