Through the eyes of a cheerful nine-year-old girl, we see a bit of life along the dusty roads of Judea. Imagine Ruthie watching other children who are walking, running, jumping, and chasing each other. She could not join them. But she knew that her physical limitations would never limit her expressions of hope and joy.
"Always expect a miracle, even from a dream-from your very own dream," her mother had often said. Ruthie knew that God's love was real, and her hope was in trusting Him.
One of her special delights was caring for their donkey, Samuel. Even to this old creature, her kindness and compassion radiated.
Ruthie's story of what happened one day on the way to Jerusalem is intended to touch the heart.
"A vividly colorful story with many lovely layers depicting God's love and grace, Ruthie's Dream] truly shows the faith of a child and the blessings that follow. It is as pure and delightful as its author."
-Lisa Binzoni, owner of The English Rose Tea Room and Gifts in Pleasanton, California
"As a father and grandfather, I'm pleased to endorse Miriam's story about a little girl whose faith in Jesus is rewarded in a miraculous way. As a pastor, I'm always looking for ways to make the story of Jesus personal. Miriam has done that with Ruthie's dream."
-Earl Heverly, Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Sacramento, California
