Loved this story! The message here is an important one. Jesus himself spent time with thieves and prostitutes, not because He was like them, but because he came to save the lost. We are called to do the same, and what better way to do this than to help the homeless during Christmas time (and the rest of the year as well). Thank you for sharing this story. :)

Wow! Praise God for His mercy and forgivness for we all have come short of the glory of God. What an amazing piece. It really is so true that all of us have failed and no sin is greater than another, if we would always remember that there is more to each soul, past the outer appearance or "smell" and such a need to come to Jesus either for the first time or to return to Him. If only we would look around us and extend a hand, like these hands in your story, what a difference we would see in our world. Thank you for sharing this piece. Nice job! God bless.:0)0

Precious story, and precious people included in it. Thanks for adding some of the details of some of these characters' lives. It helped the reader feel so much closer to them. :)

I enjoyed this piece. However, the last paragraph seemed to wrap things up a bit too sweetly. I would have liked to see it end with Cheryl (since that's where the story began). Overall, this is a good reminder of showing Christ's love at Christmas.

What a well written reminder of the love of Jesus for us all. I loved seeing these people through Cheryl's eyes....as Jesus sees them. Wonderful! God Bless you for sharing.
