Aslan is on the Move!

 “They say Aslan is on the move—perhaps he has already landed,” [said Beaver].

And now a very curious thing happened.

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….

At the name of Aslan each one of the children felt something jump in its 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.”

– C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe


You can be sure, friends, that Aslan is indeed on Move.

The days are drawing shorter in number

and though it seems the long winter will never release its hold,

as sure as Spring comes, the great Day of Lord will come.

It may, in fact, be right around the very next corner!

Watch for Him and be ready.

    I think I’m like Lucy, what do you think? I hope Jesus comes back on Christmas, but perhaps it will be his real Birthday. No one knows his real Birthday. I have a strange craving for Turkish Delight. Nah, I’d rather have the REAL thing, heaven.

    Thanks, Bryon! Hopefully, we will each be a Lucy. I do look forward to the Turkish Delight in Heaven!

    Beautiful quote!

  • Lancia! You took that photograph?!? It’s stunning!

  • Thank you! Indeed, I did make that photograph, Kimberlee. 🙂 The whole series is stunning and the experience of that shoot remains to be one of Peter’s and my happiest! We were in a game reserve called Inkwenkwezi in South Africa and our land rover got high centred in a rut. For 1 and half hours we were stuck surrounded by a tribe of 27 lions and having one of our most blissful times ever. Eventually someone came and pulled our vehicle out and we got on our way but not before I shot an amazing series of images of those lions. The whole things was a real kiss from God for us. I am always grateful for it and even 6 years later it still carries a real sense of wonder and awe for me.
