The Chronicles of Narnia

Narnia.  "Now then, where to begin?  Ah yes..."  I have always loved Narnia.  When I was younger I think that I kind of connected with Lucy the most, probably because I was close to her age.  I still love Lucy so much, she has such faith, hope, and trusts Aslan, even when her siblings don't.

 She never gives up and is so brave.  As in the words of Aslan, "If you were any braver, you'd be a lioness."  I love that quote.  I love her relationship with Aslan, its how we are supposed to have with Jesus, trust Him with all of our heart, believe that He is going to take care of every thing, and seek Him, even when you are the only one, you will find Him.

I love the others too, each in their own way.  But my ultimate favorite is...Aslan.  I am so glad that C.S. Lewis put Him in.  In what better way than a Lion?  He is the Lion and the Lamb, the Ultimate sacrifice.  There is so much Jesus in these stories that I LOVE.  Him giving up his own life for Edmund, rising again and conquering death once and for all. 

Sure they think that the snow is melting because of the kids being there, but I think it wouldn't have melted if it weren't for Aslan being there.  I mean, He is the one that sang the whole world into being. (I love that) He is the one who made the animals talk.  And yet, it was man (even though it was a kid) who let a witch/giant be awoken and come into Narnia. 

I honestly wish He was in it even more, I love Aslan.  I love how at The Last Battle Lucy says, "In our world, too, a stable once held something inside it that was bigger that our whole world."  Yes, and that is why we celebrate Christmas, because of Jesus's birth.  As it is coming closer, I get so tired of hearing and seeing "Happy Holidays," NO!!  It is supposed to be "Merry Christmas."  Even today some one said "Happy Holidays," to me and my mom, and my mom said, "Merry Christmas," in reply.  I am so done with people trying to leave Jesus out of Christmas.  It is called CHRISTtmas, and it is when we celebrate HIS birth.  Ughh.   Sorry for that little outburst, just needed to get that off my chest.

Back to Narnia.  Now I am going to do some C.S. Lewis quotes I love.



He has so many great quotes!  Thank you so much for reading!  Please, go check out Abby's blog for all kinds of posts about C.S. Lewis and Narnia.  Happy early Thanksgiving everybody!  I hope you have a wonderful one!


  1. Such great picks for the quotes!

  2. Wonderful post Morgan! I agree, he has so many beautiful quotes...

  3. This was beautiful, Morgan!!!

    *gasp* I totally forgot that quote from The Last Battle! I really need to reread it, because that is AWESOME.

    Ugh, I know, "Happy Holidays" irritates me. And yep, that's totally the best way--responding "Merry Christmas". It's subtle but corrective ;D

    Which of the books is your favorite? :D

    Thanks for this!

    1. Thank you, Olivia!!
