Nick angle and tie in to scripture. Watch comma use--over done in some areas.

Very interesting - to think of Joseph "teaching" Jesus about spiritual things. I think this was well-done, giving us a fresh perspective of Joseph as father. There were a few small errors that would be caught with a bit of extra proof-reading (like: "Bright late-afternoon morning sunlight"). Overall, this is a good story, though!

A wonderful portrayal. Well done.

Very good! Usually when a story is written from Joseph's POV, it's around the time of Jesus' birth. I enjoyed this a great deal, and I'd never thought about how His carpentry training had influenced His parables. Well done!

Wow. Very nice story. I felt a pang of guilt while reading this story. I remember more than once cracking a joke at another's expense as a teen. Great job.

Oops, left comments for wrong story above.

Good job on this one. Great description of Joseph's point of view.

This was an enjoyable read. Nice perspective. Good job!
What a beautifully intriguing story! I've always loved the fact that Jesus was a carpenter, following in his earthly father's footsteps. You've catured their loving relationship in this story, and it's so appealing. Wonderful story!!

This is an excellent work - the plank in the eye and Joseph's (perhaps) influence. Nice job and attention-holding.

A fun, intriguing perspective. Great tie-in with the Lord's parable. Good job!

CHILLS!!! I hope this one lands in the winner's circle! I NEVER made that connection with the sawdust and plank before (feeling kind of dumb for not noticing it!) -WOW!!!!!!! Something so simple,yet so profound.

A beautiful story, which brought tears to my eyes as well as a lump to my throat. We never think of Joseph & Jesus' parting after 30 years of working side by side;...but in this masterpiece, you painted it for us in vivid color. Thank you.

PS: THe first five words...are they supposed to be that way...or just a typo?
Thanks for all your comments!
As for the first 5 words, I confess...a typo...meant to say, "late afternoon sunlight"...& to think I checked & rechecked! Someday I'll finally submit something (hopefully) typo-free...LOL!
