Pastor Don Tidmore stood at the alter, but spoke not. He looked at the first row on his left hand side. There in the center of the pew sat Jenny Milan, right where she belonged. She looked different with her head shaved, but with her there, life was returning back to normal. To Jenny’s left was his daughter, Rachael, her head was similarly shaved down and he felt so proud of her. Amber and Jessie followed, there heads were also in a modified crew cut as well. On the other side of jenny, Christine sported a similar hairdo as her friend as the group showed support for their friend that was restored. The hair was all donated to a charity that made wigs for children with cancer and Don felt a certain pride for his flock. Now, Jenny would not have to feel self conscious, she was a trend setter. Don chuckled to himself, “if a visitor came by, they might mistake this non-denominational church as some sort of cult,” he mused to himself.
Directly next to jenny, sat Shawn. The two held hands and amazingly Chase, who sat directly behind them, had yet to turn red with anger. Don smiled in their direction.
“Life is never easy, even for those of us who have hope in Christ,” don started his sermon. “I doubt that after the fall, that God ever intended it to be. Sometimes we are put through the wringer, brought to our breaking point. We feel that the next fall of the hammer will be the last need. But it is then that we are strengthened. As the Apostle Paul said, ‘in my weakness, I am made strong.’”
Jenny nodded in approval. He had made her strong indeed.

Author's Note: I purposefully saved the short epilogue for last instead of include it with the previous chapter because i wanted overall feedback put here. Are there things that should be added or taken away to make this novel better. Realize, that I plan to one day have this published and be a real author someday. Also, if you found value in this work and would like to reward the author, I have a paypal account at [email protected], it would surely help. Thank you, God Bless.
