This is very well written. I loved the ending and I am thankful my kleenex sits next to my computer. Tender hearts break easily but God holds us in His hands. Thank you for sharing and keep writing.

Such a nice story! I particularly liked the way Andy's trust that he heard from God was revealed. Kids are so spiritually receptive.

Wow! That was a great story. I also had goosebumps! I'm glad Andy could give Michael a fresh look at yellow.

I felt compassion your MC. It's hard to imagine children at Christmas with no gifts, but I know there are many. Thanks you for sharing this well thought out story.

Thousands of children will be receiving these boxes and I always pray for this type of responce.
Love how God used the child's heart. He does, you know.
Good story.

Your story really gives insight into the brokeness of some families and the joy of God's ministries, particularly the Operation Christmas Child. Great job getting inside a child's mind.
