I actually liked reading this. Very poignant and I liked the simple but vivid imagery in the story.

The ending was evocative- I could envision the woman dancing in the rain. I could relate to that feeling she had.
I love your story, the imagery is so poignant and the conclusion so liberating!
Ohh, this is really good! What incredible imagery you have used, the descriptions are just beautiful. I love the concept of the story and the way you have told this. Really well done.
I truly enjoyed your story. Very well written and a gripping story that pulled you in. Good job and keep writing.
great writing and i love the contrast between the dry dustiness and the innocence of the baby. Your use of words is so very descriptive.
Impacting imagery! Love, love, loved reading this story. :)
Excellent! I think I liked this one the best. Good job of describing that miracle of coming to know and understand who God is!!
Wow, this was outstanding I felt like I was right there feeling the dust blowing. The characters and dialog were memorable and believable The accent was perfect. You did a good job with this well-written piece.
I commented here a few days ago, and like visiting a friend who transports you to a special place and feeling in history, I found myself welling up with the memory and essence of your characters as I "socialized" on FB this morning, wanting to share this with friends! So, I came back for another visit.
(con't) So, I came back for another visit, TO FEEL THE RAIN! :)
