Beautiful story with pertinent themes and an important message.

Nicely done.

God bless~
This is a lovely testimony. This topic has been bringing up a lot of old wounds. I think so many of us feel like an outcast no matter what.

The only thing I might challenge you to do is write on topic without using the topic phrase. It can be difficult, but some of the best stories never mention the actual words yet are still on topic. I could definitely see where you were coming from and think you are talented enough to rise up to that challenge. :)

I really liked how you emphasized God's love. Being different really isn't that bad. God made us all unique and we each have a wonderful purpose in life. You do a nice job of reminding me of that.
I liked how you started by analyzing the phrase and then continued by using your experiences

It is when we do not use our gifts and talents that we become "a black sheep".

Your article should make us think about ourselves.
