"God was that dog I held today." Wrenching. Real. Painful beyond words. But pointing toward something true. We've posted this before - and I should warn any dog-owners it's wrenching to watch - but it's an exquisite insight into how God is always a part of our lives, in the strangest places, where some refuse to see His presence. It is about grace through suffering.
