Yelena found the secret. Real, true joy, detached from earthly concerns, is ours when we touch others with the kingdom of God. Your story is free-ing. Loved it.

A gift of service to an enemy would be the hardest of all, I think. You showed it very well in this well written story.

A great example of the way Christ gave his all for me when I did not deserve it! I only hope, but cannot imagine, I could respond this way. Very challenging story.

One of my favorites in this level. Such stories challenge me to pass on the grace and mercy I have received, instead of always focusing on just punishment.

Wonderful analogy. I love the vivid descriptions and message. One of my favorites this week.

I love the way Yelena prayed before her every act. It is the only way she could have served and sacrificed that way. It reminds me of Romans 12:1--Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.
Powerful message!

Great twist! I sure didn't see that one coming, I thought that Samuel was her husband...instead of her husband's killer. Wow. Loved the bit with the oasis too.
