Our Creator has many ways of walking with us and talking with us. He can even use a blind dog!
What would you do if your dog was going blind? You might think you don’t need that on top of all your other problems, and give away the dog. Or, like Gayle Irwin, you might keep your pet and bond even closer as you work to “see” together. And in the process, the God who created both you and your dog may teach you wonderful lessons about really seeing and trusting … lessons that will not make your problems go away but will increase your faith, hope, and joy in the midst of them.
Renew your walk with the Lord. Use these thirty lessons as daily readings. Along with stories of Sage, Gayle shares life applications of many scriptures on topics such as Contentment, Perseverance, Courage, and Trust.
“Irwin writes with humor, joy, and thanksgiving. She weaves life stories with spirituality, exploring a range of topics with grace and reflection. Intermingled with the text are photos of Sage, Cody and the Irwins. Their family of humans, cats, and two beloved dogs are examples in living a life that is examined and in devotion to Christ.”

“I found the book refreshing as well as inspirational.”
− Susan Bulanda, author of God’s Creatures: A Biblical View of Animals
“With vulnerability Gayle shares how the Holy Spirit guides, reveals and heals the broken heart. Sage is a wounded healer! Gayle’s discernment and acute awareness with respect to the intimacy between humans, God, and animals is inspiring and encouraging. I commend this book as a personal devotional, short daily readings, and as a resource for encouragement and reality checks for anyone.”
− Rev. Frank Kinney, retired Presbyterian pastor
