Matt.1:20 – But when he had thought this over, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream

The Chronicles of Narnia have always had the fragrance of Christmas about them to me. I guess its the exciting, anything could happen feeling you get when you take a trip to Narnia. By the way, have you been to Narnia lately. Some may think that Narnia is for children but I seem to be drawn there more and more as I get older. Speaking of Christmas, what is it it that makes Christmas so special? You can travel anywhere in the world at Christmas time and feel it in the air. Of course Christmas is more than a celebration, it is an acknowledging that the light has come and is overcoming the darkness. Today, I bring you a quote from C.S. Lewis from the Chronicles of Narnia. I hope you enjoy it.

“None of the children knew who Aslan was any more than you do; but the moment the Beaver had spoken these words everyone felt quite different. Perhaps it has sometimes happened to you in a dream that someone says something which you don’t understand but in the dream it feels as if it had some enormous meaning–either a terrifying one which turns the whole dream into a nightmare or else a lovely meaning too lovely to put into words, which makes the dream so beautiful that you remember it all your life and are always wishing you could get into that dream again. It was like that now. At the name of Aslan each one of the children felt something jump in it’s inside. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt suddenly brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delicious smell or some delightful strain of music had just floated by her. And Lucy got the feeling you have when you wake up in the morning and realize that it is the beginning of the holidays or the beginning of Summer.”

That is exactly what Christmas has always done for me. It’s like a beautiful recurrent dream. Just like Narnia, you can’t plan a trip there, it just kind of happens to you. One minute everything is normal and you are surrounded by the daily drama or boredom that fills your world. Suddenly that all changes as you find yourself in that place that is like a dream. It is a dream, it is Aslan’s dream. I hope to see you there very soon.

    🥰🥰🥰🥰…it’s as if when we grow up we forget our dreams, until Jesus brings them to life…and then we remember and are overcome with the heavenly weight of glory when He tells us, “Come up here..let me show you how I’ve had you in my sight all of your life.” We may have forgotten..but He never does🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈
