“Love is a bridge that stands firm through difficulties and connects one heart directly to another, not because of how it looks, but because of what it is.” –Kim Meeder, Blind Hope
Blind Hope by Kim Meeder delivered a heart warming tale about a dog (Mia) and it’s owner (Laurie) that dog lovers and non-dog lovers can both appreciate. The book starts with Laurie picking up Mia from a family who could no longer take care of her, only to find a dog that she wasn’t sure she could love. Mia was not what she had anticipated, not the beautiful, healthy, courageous dog she had anticipated, but rather a dog that was ugly, dirty, smelly and unhealthy.
Laurie talks about how she takes the dog and slowly begins to love this dog. Throughout the book she parallels her life with that of one that we all most certainly can identify with….how can Christ love us so broken, dirty and undeserving.
What I liked about the book:
