This is very well written. You revealed facts that we all sometimes hide until we realize God already knows.

I like the way this works with the topic and I like the lessons you learned.

Thanks for sharing.

Great reflective piece with many things to ponder and consider. Well done, and well said.

God bless~
Oh, what a great job you did of showing your emotions. I could picture you being hugged by a big dirty man while holding your breath. You did a wonderful job of showing that scene.

The only red ink I have is little, but it's one of my grammar cringes. In this line:
There were times I wondered why God thought that, me of all people, was capable of handling this assignment
The me should be I. If you take out the parenthetical phrase (of all people) it's easier to see. (You wouldn't say me was capable) Removing that part is a trick that works most of the time.

In contrast, though, the above line is also one of the most powerful ones in the story. When we doubt ourselves, God believes in us. Wow! What a wonderful message. Your story reminded me of Jesus questioning the people about who needs him most. I'm sure he took a lot of guff about hanging out with prostitutes, and beggars. You really made me stop and think. I also thought your dual coverings of the topic was quite brilliant too. Not only do the homeless and needy get the short end of the stick, but the MC thought he did too. It's a wonderful epiphany when we humans can see God's blessings and glory even during trying times. That's a terrific message and one we all need to hear from time to time.

This is so beautiful. I love, "Complications are needed for miracles to happen" along with so many other profound insights displayed in this story. This brought tears to my eyes.
Great piece!

The most precious communication from a small child is that he wishes you were his dad. You melted my heart with this . . .

Congratulations, and thank you for your heart for Christ!
