Same kind of different as me

Yesterday, I started reading a book a friend gave me. I couldn't put it down.

It captured my attention from page one. I cried my way through the last few chapters with my daughter's concerned gaze on me. "It's okay" I told her. "These are good tears."

I don't even know how to describe this book. There are no words. It has made a powerful impact on me.

Woven through the true story of the friendship of these two men and one courageous woman are vivid glimpses of the passionate love of God.

I'm still thinking about it, trying to process what I've seen, to take it in.

All I can say is, read this book! You won't be the same when you're through.

Kelly and Don gave you a copy too didn't they? I loved this book also and cried and cried.

Karen,
Yes, Kelly gave it to me on Friday. I'm so glad you've read it. We'll have to compare notes.

I heard about this story a while back, maybe on Focus on the Family? Can't remember, but will definitely try to get a copy! It sounds amazing!
