What sheer delight to read! This is my favorite story this week. I pray it places.
I actually felt like I was there at the nursing home! If I ever do have to live someplace like that I sure hope to find a Clarence or two as neighbors.
very good. id say more but i've got a headache
A touching story with an insightful message. Your last line brings this piece to a very nice conclusion. Well done.
What a perfectly charming story! I had to read to the end to fully understand who Clarence is. We are so apt to dismiss the spiritual development and testimony of those with limited mental capabililties. I wonder if Clarence knows that God is using him as a missionary.
Great story! I remember that, after my dad died, I was concerned that, perhaps he'd accepted Christ in a diminished capacity, about five years into a long nine year stay in the nursing home. A friend said to me, "Don't you think that intellect often gets in the way of our relationship with Christ?" Well, that was a new one on me. However, you show it all over again, here in your story. Keep up the good work!
This story is so wonderful and tender and convicting! Thank you so much for sharing it - and congratulations!
I followed your profile here... I thought that was very sweet and poignant.

I loved the moral.
