Excellent work here. I love the first line paralleling the trees to his hands but the entire work is excellent.

How well you have crafted your story. This is a vivid account of an unbeliever bent on crucifying the Righteous One. Face to face with Him the cross-maker is transformed by what he sees in His eyes - divine love.
Well written piece. How true this might have been.

Well-written and powerful. Should be done as a reading in a Good Friday service.

Oooh! I was so glad he looked back seeking forgiveness! So good!
Beautiful! So bittersweet.

Sharlyn, I had never made the connection, before reading this, that TWO carpenters would have been involved in the crucifixion: the One on the cross, and the one who fashioned it! Gives me chills to ponder the idea.
I also want to thank you for your comment on my "Sidetracks" story. I was delighted that you made sense of everything with the title's clue!

A well done perspective. I liked this line "claims to be seeing to his father’s business. His father was only a carpenter, no better or worse than mine.”
" Nicely done :)
