Great reminder for us all!

I think if you stick with one story, one comparative thought, it would have been a little easier read, and really drove home your main point.

Thanks for the encouraging word.
I found this inspiring. I especially enjoyed the story about the missionary. As they say, it’s not over until it’s over! The point the story makes is a good one.
This gives me o bet to think about. The next time I'm calling out to God because of my chronic illness/ pain ' I'll remember your words.
This is a twist on the topic - I'm not sure what the judges will say. I agree with Sarah that one comparative thought would have made this piece stronger, but you gave us much to mull over. Well done.
Side-stepping conventional thought is what we as writers should be doing. You did it well. Thank you.
I had a stress test not too long ago myself. It was very grueling. I liked your concept, "Are we there yet." Very thought provoking message.

Congratulations on your EC award.
Your beautiful words resonated within me, perhaps especially so because I have been reading Brother Lawrence's book again, The Practice of the Presence of God.

He has much to say about illness as well.
