Love Comes Full Circle
The Dog Who Was There by Ron Marasco is a beautiful novel and one that will remain in your heart long after the last page is read.
The novel is told through the eyes of Barley, a small seven year old dog. The reader witnesses his search for a home, for love, for a place to belong. Barley is a metaphor for us – we all need a home, love and a place to belong. We find our home is not in bricks and mortar. Our home is in a person and His name is Jesus.
Barley ‘sees’ the final week of Jesus’ life as he follows the Kind Man. The Kind Man has compassion for all, even a small dog. The Kind Man has compassion for you and for me.
