I love the contrast between his job and his heart. Poignant and lovely.
Nice, very nice...
Your MC is great. Your story perfect. Loved it.
Excellent story. The faithfulness of the working man and love of husband and wife for each other and the Lord came through clearly in the story. The reason for the season shone brightly against the mundane background.

Delightful to see where the story went. The text messaging one word at a time was a great touch.

A simple story that runs deep. I love how the MC remained humble and at peace with the headaches of his life - working a thankless 2nd job as a trash-man (I wonder what his "real" job is?), working for a thankless boss half his age, the thankless crowds not making his job any easier. Very nicely done.
I love the difference in the title - which is the mc's lot in his 2nd job - and the mc himself. This is such a good read and the message comes through loud and clear without being 'in-your-face'. :)
