I think many of us can identify with Cheryl. I am so thankful for grace. Thank you for this story. God bless.
Oh, this is good! I like it. Yes, we all have times when we carry around too much guilt... and then feel guilty about it!
I love this analogy! Great writing!
A lovely allegory, and an excellent reminder to be a bearer of grace, not guilt.
Congratulations, Jan, on winning 2nd place in the EC awards this week.

The line that struck me was: In fact, the acquisition of guilt was as natural to Cheryl as breathing. I, like Cheryl, take on false guilt that walls me away to the outside world.
I could feel God talking to me though your story.
Love the word picture of the bricks that loaded your MC's mindset - so descriptive. Congrats on your placing.
Congratulations, Jan, on your 2nd place. This is very good writing, as usual. I like the brick analogy and found the ending very moving as she took up the 'unworthiness' brick and perhaps never really used the sledgehammer.Another one for me to use where I give short devotional talks, if I may.
I think this rates at the top of my list of favorites from your numerous spectacular entries.
It reached in deep.
