Great job. You are such a master at drawing out the readers emotions. I commend you. I loved your story, especially the perfect ending! Keep writing.
Well told story. God can use our worst situations to His glory, and the simplest items, a toy soldier, to do His will.
What a beautiful ending to a sad story. It shows that God can take the simplest things,
turn it around for our good and His glory. Even a toy soldier. Your title fit the plot so, well. "A Drop of Hope" I really enjoyed reading your article. It came to life for me, it was great.
Great story with an even greater message. You have a gift for thought provoking, well written, story telling. Thanks for sharing.
What a heart ache that woman was carrying. I'm so glad Lester came her way to share who could carry all her burdens.
Your entry is on topic and very well written.

Thank God for Christians like Lester. You created a lot of emotion and crafted a wonderful positive ending.
Thoughtfully written with a compelling ending that satisfies. The only suggestion I make is to eliminate [Lester dug in his toolbox and pulled out a few packets. “I’ll put this dye in your bowls,” said Lester. “It’ll tell us which tank is causing you problems.”] The paragraph will still convey the same message and eliminate confusion over where the dye was put. Or, change the word "bowls" in the above highlighted section to "tanks". A very enjoyable read.
Touching and indicative of God's mysterious ways.
Well written!
Congratulations on placing 6 in your level and 19 overall!
