I'm glad Linda cared enough to take the risk, and that Marsha responded. Good story.

I enjoyed reading this story with the bridge game as the backdrop. Your story flows very smoothly and your title is very clever. Bidding in a bridge game is something I'm afraid I'll never master. :)

You "showed" with your story how Christians can gently help each other. Well done. I loved the conclusion.

Nice application story! For those of us who don't play bridge, you may want to try to weave in just a bit of background detail in the beginning. Believable dialogue and character.

All I know about Bridge you could stuff into a mosquito's boot, but this was one good story! But then, you're one good writer!! Kudos!!!

I liked the lesson here. This story reminded me of many family members that I have that don't do so well with their emotions while playing competitive games.

I am currently studying the book of James on my blog, so this was a good story to illustrate what I am learning right now in my study.

Thank you for sharing.

Whew, Marsha's got a temper. You did a great job showing us instead of telling. Nicely done, as always.

I'm betting Linda makes the "two no". :) Great characterizations. Loved Linda's last line. :)

Incredible message tucked into this entertaining piece.
This says it all:
“No silly. But, He does talk about needless anger. Sweetie, please don’t get mad when I tell you that these anger flashes are driving our little group apart. Look what it says in the Bible.”

I know someone like this and it does destroy the safety and trust in a relationship. God knew what He was doing when He gave us instructions about needless anger. Great characterizations in this story.
