Love it! "Clever" isn't a good enough word, but you are, you are!
LOL! Too funny! This would read a little better with the first paragraph borken into several paragraphs, but very good!
Great dialogue - both human and angel! Layers of cleverness here...funny with a twist of insight.

This started out good, and it just kept getting better and better...love it!
I actually read this last night, and loved it. Its sort of sad too, but very entertaining at the same time. Love Carl's last name!

Is this what that vacation did to you? You didn't go to the river did you? Loved the dialogue tagless dialogue. Hey, somebody just threw a rock at me!!! LOL Great writing!

Brilliant and creative mind. But I kept wondering about the paper towel? What was on it? Suddenly The angels came and interrupted my fascination with that towel. (lol) fascinating and unique story. "Masters"type writing.

PS: You did your research - there IS a mental institution on the Chattahoochee River. Good work.

Oh, William - did I ever love this! So clever and profound and funny and thought-provoking and probably half a dozen other adjectives that are escaping me right now. I especially LOVED the end! What a creative mind the Lord has given you!!
Very creative!

Very creative throughout, but I especially enjoyed the ending of this piece. "We are going to have to hit him in the head so he'll...start hearing God." Or so that she will, if I might add. Good work!

Sir William! Congratulations (again!)! You have a knack for giving us the most wonderfully human characters. I cannot help falling in love with every one. I hope you expand this into a long story, so we can see how this all turns out in the end. I'm so glad the Lord brought you and your talent to faithwriters, for our delight :)

Hi William,

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this piece. I was a judge for the river challenge and this piece really made me laugh. It showed well how God has a sense of humor. :) Did you get hit with a rock before you wrote it?
May God bless you in all you do!

Loved the atmosphere, the characters and all the levels the reader gets to experience. A great 'inside-out' perspective - loved it! ;)
