Wonderful job of expressing the MC's anguish and yearning to be "a better child of God" Nicely done.

Thank you. God bless~
I really enjoyed this. I think it took a lot of courage to announce that sometimes you want a vacation from God. But in only being honest with ourselves can we grow. It's funny because now that spring is approaching, I've noticed the bible studies and women's church meetings are getting ready to take a break until fall. i'm at a point in my life where I desperately need that Bible study during the summer months. I really liked how you expressed yourself. It helped me be able to vocalize some of my thoughts and fears.

Very honest, down to earth, and great writing. Thanks especially for the heavenly perspective at the end.

Oh, how I loved this! How many times I've felt like this - so many people and things clamoring for my attention and in the midst, God continually working on me!Now I'm older and retired and miss it somehow. (go figure - lol) But God never stops working on us and for that, I'm grateful! God bless!

Somebody used the word "courage" in an earlier comment. I think that hits it right on the head. As Christians we are all so often afraid to admit our own faults and those moments where we are tempted to turn our backs on God. But if we are completely honest, they probably happen daily or hourly even, not seasonally or annually. It's the honesty that makes this entry so refreshing and compelling. And what saves our mc in the end? The word of God, of course. Great job!
Congratulations for ranking 8th in level three!
