I had to laugh when I read this. I can see it, in fact I think I know Dulcie, only she's using different name. Good job!
This is great. leave it to a baby to minister to the cranky church lady. You did a great job in telling your story.

LOL! I like how Dulcie turned out to be such a loveable charcter. Your opening line was a real hook, great job! I hope this does well :-)
I enjoyed reading this very much! To add, I imagined the new pastor in blue jeans with his gelled, spiked up hair. I could imagine Dulcie's disgust. LOL!

I loved the part when the little baby touched Dulcie's heart. She's a 'softy', sweet little devout lady after all. I'd love to get to know her more :):) :)

God's blessings of love, Maryknoll

Enjoyed the character. Great name. Reminded me of a "Crazy Annie" I knew once. Anyway, enjoyed the read and message. God bless.

Enjoyed the story very much! I like the story setting and it unfolds to show how a cranky person can be tamed by a 'little' love.
I was impressed with how well you set the scene and handled description -- of the church, people, actions taking place. Very well done!

Well written without question. But, most of all, just plain interesting. The story itself is so good.
I love your first line and reread it several times to savor it. A+ all the way. This one should do well.
