In Winter's Grip

It has felt for some time as if we were having a Narnia experience around here — always winter and never Christmas. Why it is mid-April and we are shivering yet and snow and ice were on the ground just yesterday morning. I have been told that it even snowed in Texas last week! Thing is, the ice and snow doesn't last long now. It can't. Aslan is on the move! ; >

~Winter's Grip~
When the snow of Narnia melts, Lewis is suggesting how winter in our hearts gives way to a springtime of faith. ~Emilie Griffin

(By clicking on the quote above, you may read a lovely essay about this very thing and learn more about C. S. Lewis's own conversion experience. So different from the Apostle Paul's and interesting.)

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. ~Colossians 2: 6–7

Enjoy this beautiful spring day!
