The sad thing is that many times people put their own desires ahead of the call of God. Thanks for this well-written reminder of the cost sometimes required in following Christ.
A very good story with a meaningful message. Very well written and communicated. God bless.
Powerful. I'm not sure I would have had the same courage. Well done.
Very passionate story! I thought the title was just perfect. Excellent writing once again!
Beautifully written, very real and full of grace.
Very moving. I liked best your verbs - and the way you showed their emotions. I would not have changed anything at all. It flowed, satisfactory ending and was right on topic. Nice job.
This was so very beautiful. I felt the struggle in her heart, and in his. Extremely well done! Thanks for sharing it.
"Delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart," comes to my mind. This is a poignant story, and very well written, as far as it goes--from my point of view :( for what it's worth. What I miss is the joy of the Lord. I guess I don't like reading sad endings---I would like your story better, if you dangled a little thread of hope, that Paul would be joining her, later. It seems that taking up one's cross is the message you want to convey. I would just like to see that in balance with Jesus' words "Take My yoke is easy and my burden is light." If this were the opening chapter in a book, you would certainly keep your reader hooked, yearning to see how you resolve the tension! So: more! more!
