This is a beautiful story. I love how you captured the emotion of the two people in this situation. Well done.
Interesting take on the scripture.
I wonder, however, if I were the mother, I would be devastated that the pastor is inferring that it was my fault the baby died. Is that what you meant to say here?
So glad Jesus gives us more than one chance!
Your first paragraph was very powerful, with evocative imagery that set the tone for the rest of the story.

I have to agree with the previous commenter, though--if this were me, I'd have found no comfort in this pastor's words.

Your two characters are well-developed, and your writing is skillful. This is thought-provoking.
Wonderful story telling.
God bless~
