I love the way you wove together the story and the lesson, rather than covering one than moving on to the other. Much more effective this way, in my opinion! You did a superb job of describing the scene - I could definitely see it very clearly. Wonderful job!
This is an excellent devotional entry!

A beautiful devotional wrapped up in a warm story. Very, very nice! Great job! :)
Your story is chock full of lessons we all need to learn as we journey through life. Don't we all lose sight of the goal of eternal life once in a while and focus on things that are less important? Makes you stop and think. Good job!

Good devotional. Just wondered about your title. You only briefly mentioned the bench and it wasn't a big player in your story. Very good lessons though.

Great description with a lesson well applied. Also like that you apply it to yourself rather than just preaching. Have a think about changing third person to first person in the beginning paragraph. ie 'you could see'. yeggy
Wonderful visualization of spiritual truth! I'm glad that I saw your hint and read this. I will be concious today, especially, of tending my spiritual garden. Great writing!
