Wow! This gives new meaning to "burning your bridges behind you." And that last line is incredible. Well done.
Powerful, well-presented allegory. I was engaged throughout, and love that last line especially.
I love a detailed story that ministers to me on several levels. This is a keeper. Great job. God bless.
Amazing imagery and lesson. Excellent writing. Amazing.
Forgiveness is such an important part of being a Christian, and your story makes that very clear.

I like how at the end, she talks about the weight of the matchbox being lifted and making it easier to cross.

This blessed me. Thank you for sharing it.
Wow. Heavy matches. Wouldn't life be wonderful if we could all just throw away our box of matches?

Marvelously well written entry. I would have loved to see your description of the matchbox falling out of sight to the bottom of the gorge, lost forever in the rocks below.
I loved this story. I think maybe it hit home ya know :) I think you did a great job on it.
A very good take on the topic.
