Beautiful description, though I confess I am going to have to read this several times before I "catch your drift". But your last two lines are absolutely incredible: "I pull it out of the rocks that support it and rest it on my shoulder. As I continue on the Way, I praise God for the one burden that He has left me after His Son took all the rest." No, the cross isn't in the way at all! Great job!
Beautiful word pictures, here. Your opening sentence certainly gets one's attention. I, too, love the concluding lines---they are brilliant. I also took delight in the picture of the birds stitching the sod with their needle-beaks. Good stuff!
Nice traveling story. Enjoyed the walk.
This is the best I've read for this topic and I must have read at least 50. Guess I saved the best for last. Your descriptions of the woods are breathtakingly beautiful and I like the ending where you pick up the cross and carry it. If I were judging, this would be #1.
Very descriptive and picturesque language. Nice work! :)
Wonderful language, and so profound! I very much enjoyed this!
Love the way you make use of words - so beautiful.
I love the descriptions! Good job!
