I enjoyed each vignette into each home. Your words fit well with each scene like, "threatened into bed" and "meal commenced with a prayer." I'm glad you mention that "Patty is not without her own struggles." I like the contrast between the "cookie-cutter" homes and the lives of those living within. Your ending with the "maybe's" is creative and convicting. Nice work on this.
Good story and it definitely stresses that our greatest, most needy mission field is probably our on neighborhood.
Interesting approach--almost parable-like, as even in Christian homes there is sometimes strife and trouble. But as an allegory, it worked very well.
