Wow- This was amazing! It touched my heart. So well written, haunting and powerful.

Excellent account of the sadistic Nero who used Christians for human torches for illumination at night in his gardens, as well as many tortures and abominations against Christians!

You brought such a horrific image to life, yet managed to soften it with an even better image, eternity with Christ.

Brilliant and clever out of the box writing.

God bless~

I love the mental image of Jesus tying the sandal of a child. Great thoughts - great writing!
Wow, you packed so much emotion into a small package. Very moving. I really loved the title and theme. Just one encounter with Jesus is enough to change any life. Nice tight writing.
