Rating of Chapter 168 - Part 1 --2 The pizza man
Dear misscookie,
You didn't just give the pizza man $4.00 you gave him a sense of dignity. What a great thing to do for him and for the Lord.
The flow of your poem worked well with the story you were presenting.

    Thank you for you kind words and thoughtful comments yes I did. He told me he would pay me back, I just clacked it up as a blessing helping others.
    Maybe that's one the reasons I 'm always smiling and feeling happy for I'm in Gods grace no matter what.
    Have a blessed week end.

You are a gem, M'lady...that's for sure. Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you have these experiences in our lives? Bless you for feeling that man's pain and for helping him out all the way. Bob

Thanks so much for sharing this follow-up to your first part, Cookie. You handled the situation so well by listening to God and trusting his voice to guide you. The result was the man making his first payment toward paying you back and keeping his dignity. Awesome!

:) Bev

As often it is so, misscookie. We often worship when gone, give tribute when no more, and say our sad tidings when there is none to hear them.
Best wishes,
RG

Hi Cookie,

Your poem is written well. I like that you put two parts together. It was
really interesting to read. I hope you'll write another one about the pizza
man that has parts 3 and part 4. You were so nice to give the man money
for pizza and it's great that he's paying you back. He may have met a
friend for life and vise versa.

Kat

I know exactly how it feels Misscookie. Many of these people are ignored.
Passengers turn their head away. It breaks my heart. They are so grateful for so little. Very touching this story in a poem. Well done!! Fia

I must have missed part one. But in this poem I understand that the pizza man still owed you some money. You just meet by chance. Nice to read this story. Thanks for sharing.

It's far easier to fall into rage and condemnation of the school shooters than to recognize they are a 'symptom' of a larger evil. So many kids come from broken homes and they need a place they can go to be safe. When school is just another place they feel lost and shunned, they do resort to violence. Their hormones are very high at that age.

This poem shows compassion and a very astute understanding of the psyche of a child who does these things. Thank goodness, as you say, Cookie, that God is standing by to guide and heal the lost soul.

Thanks for sharing.

Hugs, Bev

I like the proximate rhyme of some/fun
Everyday looking at sadness - Every day
It took his death to be notice - to be noticed
When I was doing tutoring for a government-subsidized program to help kids with low test scores, I tutored a small group of kids who had trouble with reading. Four boys, one of them smaller and more timid than the others. The others all teased him, led by a ringleader. I called them out for it several times and reported them to those in charge. Nothing changed, until one day out at recess the ringleader teased that little boy one time too many and the little boy snapped. He punched his tormentor so hard that the ringleader boy had to be taken away by ambulance. Then most of the gossip I heard was about how terrible it was that the little boy had beat somebody up. Hardly anyone was talking about how the little one had suffered for months!
