This is a great story with a message that is clear, but not at all preachy. I have felt in the past that there are people on prayer chains just to hear the gossip. I guess some of it is human nature, but your story is a needed reminder.
A very vivid portrayal of poor Miriam : ) Reminds me of that line from Burns: If we could see ourselves as others see us.

This is funny except it is too too true! You put the point across well of how blind we can be to our true motives.

Great story! Funny, but it gets the point across. I love how you tell us without telling us. I think it makes it much more memorable.
I liked this story. It was interesting how it was real to life the way she thinks. In other words, we often times find ourself compairing ourself to other people in the church. Making them better than we are. So I can relate.

It's easy to relate to your character's delima. It's this way many times in real life. I think others will relate to this as well. Thanks for sharing. Keep writing.
Congratulations for placing in the top 15 of your level!
