I’ve loved the Narnia books
since the summer my mom had us read them.
I don’t remember how old I was,
but I loved the entire series.
As a Mom,
I wanted my own children
to know the special world
Again my mom was instrumental.
She bought us
the Radio Theatre Series.
Jase enjoys listening to these while we drive.
While we were on a longer drive recently,
I gave him permission to put in a CD.
He chose my favorite one.
It wasn’t my favorite as a child.
It took adulthood to truly appreciate the truth behind the story.
(If you’ve not read this book by C.S. Lewis I’d suggest it.)
Without giving away the plot,
my love of the story
rests completely in two things.
First, the boy, who seems to have nothing but sad or bad things happen to him, is actually right where he needs to be to fulfill a far bigger purpose than he could possibly imagine.
Second, throughout the whole adventure Aslan is guiding, directing, and protecting.
As a child,
I couldn’t fully appreciate
the beautiful story.
As an adult,
I am encouraged
by all the circumstances,
which seem difficult and trying for the characters,
yet each is for the betterment
the saving of a kingdom.
Only God can do such things.
I’m certain C.S. Lewis understood the truth behind these verses:
