About the Book

Deep inside each of us a miraculous yearning to be known is sewn into the places God knows best. From the first movements within the womb to the last breath we take, "know me" is whispered throughout our lives.

Author Lynn McLeod's, Loving Strangers by God, collides the two adages we were raised with - "stop to smell the flowers" and "don't talk to strangers." Happening amid the impact is where she reveals some of God's most mysterious artwork. What if strangers were actually disguised flowers? What if secrets within us could only be unlocked through their eyes? And what if the beauty in God's creation is especially miraculous when found there? Most of us can point to an unlikely encounter with a stranger that held a powerful new appreciation for how we could be known.

Told through short stories, each chapter skillfully studies how God's mighty, powerful, and unfathomable hand touches us with the strangers who cross our path. Among those you will meet are a young girl accepting bubblegum from a stranger who teaches her the protection found in truth, a man in an elevator who redirects the path of a troubled woman as he prays, a millionaire who refuses to allow changes in life change her, a blind author who encourages a clear vision, and a nurse who comforts a critically injured patient by finding her missing dog.

In Loving Strangers by God you will begin to recognize not only how strangers impact your own life, but also how as a stranger you impact the lives of others.

"I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." Psalm 27:13
Now promise me with the loving guidance of our Heavenly Father you will take the very best care . . . then share it!
Blessings of light, joy and peace!!!
