What a wonderful, hopeFULL story. It reminds me of 2 other scriptures: "...we are saved by hope" (Romans 8:24) and "...faith, hope and love..." (1 Corthinians 13:13) Hope is a bridge between faith and love!

This is good! The title made me smile and I'm glad at the end that all his preparations weren't wasted and that they both had some common ground-Jesus! Nice job and very creative! ^_^
Great lesson on the difference between wishing and hope. You kept my interest all the way through.

A very suspenseful, sad-happy story. I liked the way you brought in the parable, in reverse, of the prodigal son. And I liked the style you used--a dream, or parable in dream form..Very inventive. I was glad that the father and son found each other. I wanted to story to go on, but after all, this is a challenge article, and word count is important. You left the reader suspended, wanting more....Good story-telling....Helen
