I'm in the process of reading "Prince Caspian" right now. I've been on a mission to read each of the Chronicles of Narnia for some time now (I'm just really taking my time. :-) ).

While reading these Chronicles, I can't help but get a special thrill from them because, well, you see...Aslan=Jesus.

And, if you have been reading these fantastic novels, but don't see it, let me explain:
Aslan was there at the creation of Narnia ("The Magician's Nephew"). In "The LW&W", Aslan sacrifices himself to die for the Narnians and then rises again (notice also that he spent time in the woods before his capture. Also, please note that Aslan repeatedly exclaims that he is turning himself over....no one is making him do it).

Incredible, I say!

So, while i read "Prince Caspian", I feel wonderful knowing that there is a deeper meaning to the story because it's really about Christ and his love for us.


CS Lewis is magnificent.

So...I highly suggest you read these Chronicles. It will change your life.

Riding a Bike is Good for the Soul

Scott and I are vacationing in Sunriver right now and having the time of our lives. :-)

The past couple days we have been bike riding and boy! aren't we sore?!

In fact, the last time I rode my bike was in Germany...nearly 8 years ago (gah!). So many memories came to mind. I remembered riding through forests, fields, and adorable sleepy German town. When Julia and I were riding through the forest, we came to a small abandoned concrete building with very few windows which we believed was used during WWII.

The forest was incredibly beautiful, but there was something distinct about it. You could feel battle. I looked around me and saw so many tall trees, war, pain, and suffering. I felt the blood of the dead crying out. It's incredible that the land still holds onto those cries.

As I rode through Sunriver, I didn't feel any feelings of pain and suffering. It was serene, calming and beautiful.

God is good. I'm glad that I experienced the bike ride through Germany and the bike ride here. LORD, thank you for my ability to be active. I love You.
