Are You Going to Narnia?

Are you goin' to Narnia?
Take me along with you
To meet the Lion with the golden mane
To stare into His eyes of true

I hear the ground gives living gold
And you can drink diamonds, I've been told
In Narnia

Are you goin' to Narnia?
Take me along with you
To meet the Lamb who is a Lion
I want to learn to love Him too

We'll sail the sea of lily white
And float on water of living light
In Narnia

Narnia I can hear you call
I can hear it all
Deep inside of me
And oh, every part of me cries out
I want to shout
Let me go along with you
I want to go to Narnia, Narnia

~2nd Chapter of Acts

Of all the childhood stories I have loved, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis head the list. Some time ago, I found this wonderful post filled with pictures and even a short video that Narnia lovers would truly enjoy. It's called A Real Life Narnia Trail: Giants, Stone Tables and Digory. Treat yourself to a cup of tea and sit down to some enjoyment.

'T is raining again. We are getting mildewed up here. So glad that yesterday did end with some sun for the Creekside Cottage Crew and hope that they can drive out of this mess to find the sun west of us. We had a wonderful visit and I will be sharing more about that in a few days. The fun thing about these visits is that one wishes there were more time. Alas, the show must go on.

That's one of the things I love about Blogdom. Time is suspended here. If you want to visit a blogger, you always can dip into the archives even if s/he is off on a real life adventure. Blogdom can be a lot like Narnia...

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Love this post, Vee! Narnia magic...

    Yesterday was delightful. It was a gift to me to meet you. Thanks.

    We had a lovely dinner last night - a restaurant in Farmington who had a pianist playing even!

    Today we are headed West.


  2. I love Narnia!! No rain here, but, we have no humidty and it is just darn right nice. Blessings

  3. You always begin my days on a positive note. Narnia is one of my favorites, too, so I'll check out the post. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Can you believe - after the spring floods - it's dry here? Still too much water in the lakes, but our lawns are showing that they want moisture.

  4. OK, so I'm like the only one on the plantet who hasn't read Narnia! Must go lookie...

    Have a good week, my friend and enjoy this lovely fall ;-)

  5. Too bad I have a full day planned...or I would plop myself right down and visit Narnia, via DVD. I think they did as well as anyone could at giving us a hint of the beauty.

  6. I remember at times crying while reading Narnia to my kids...just the truth being given through these books. I get to do it again with Benjamin. I will check out the video

    Well send that rain down here...we still have cracked soil.

    Yes, the blog world...come when you want, stay as long as you want and enjoy

  7. I spent many of my childhood hours lost in Narnia and love the fact that I can get lost with my son their now. They have always been wonderful moments.
    I have decided the more it rains in Maine the drier it becomes here. There has to be a happy medium somewhere!
    Of course, rainy days do allow for you to get lost in a book, or catch up on visiting friends in blogland.
    Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  8. She has a lovely post. Which I told her, of course. And that you sent me over. :-)

    Oh all those lovely, lovely sights...

    Gentle hugs,

  9. Yes, that is true. We can come back and reread and reconnect time after time. Like a good book, but always changing! Your visit with the Rabes reminds me of our visit with you and I'm thanking the Lord over again just now for making that possible! Have a sweet day and maybe some sunshine coming your way?

  10. We have been reading Narnia since my middle age children were kids. It is a favorite for all of us! YES, I can see how Blogdom is a bit of Narnia in feel. Just click on one of the blog post and a window to a whole different world opens up. Go THROUGH the window and you can see so much more of that world. To exit back to YOUR real world.....why, you simply close the window. You can come and go as silently or with as much commotion as you wish! Go on.....step through the wardrobe!

  11. 'Tis raining over here as well. So glad the skies cleared for your meeting with the 'Creekside' folks. Looking forward to hearing all about it!

    And now I'm off to check out the 'Real Life Narnia Trail'.

  12. Brings back memories, Vee. Narnia is a favorite of our family as well as C.S. Lewis. Hubby's read "The Problem of Pain" and some of his other things...

    Glad the "crew" got some sunshine and you all had a good visit. Can't wait to hear all about that!

    Lucky --- wish we had some of your rain... stay cozy today, my friend!

  13. 'T is raining here as well. I finally know how to spell that now. .thank you.
    I bought the DVD version several years ago. It really is a wonderful story.

    So we've met the same person. That's good. Lovely isn't she? We're getting closer then to meeting one another ..surely.

  14. After weeks of rain, we now have a long dry spell. I'm told the farmers are thrilled with the opportunity to get in the fall harvest.

    The 2nd Chapter of Acts have a CD filled with their music about Narnia. I don't have it but I've heard it is excellent.

  15. I have never read the Narnia books but watched to movie and loved it (The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe). I remember the group 2nd Chapter of Acts! Back in the 70's right? Guess where I am going? I am going to Maine! Tomorrow until Friday with 3 other friends! There'll be a stop in Bangor then we're headed to Camden area and Freeport and all points in between. What's the weather calling for down there Vee? Hugs, Pam

  16. Calling for sunshine starting Wednesday afternoon. You'll be the closest to me in Freeport. I'll stand on top of the rock and wave and holler halloooo!

  17. Hi Vee!

    Yes, I am a Narnia lover too! What a magical place Narnia is - I would love to go for a visit!

    Cloudy and rainy in my neck of the woods. I'm afraid that Fall has come to Idaho.


  18. I didn't read Narnia until a few years ago but so glad i finally got around to reading it!!
    We are having a bit of sunshine and tomorrow we are supposed to have lots of it! : )

  19. I'll have to click over and visit that site. I so enjoy reading the Narnia series over again and again every few years...

  20. I'm probably the only one in blogland that hasn't read Narnia. Or watched the movie. I will have to change that. Seems I've been missing out.

    Don't take all the rain, we need some too!

  21. The grands have loved it, too. I haven't read it, either, CHERYL @ The farmer's Daughter...but I did see the movie with a couple of grandgirls.

    Vee, I am sorry ya'll are mildewing there...we are turning to dust here.

  22. Wonderful post!

    It finally stopped raining, but it may rain again tomorrow. Oh well.

    Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my red barn.

    You are invited to see how I painted my "Little Boy Blue in the Cornfield."

    Have a wonderful week!

  23. My children and I enjoyed all of CS Lewis' novels. It was a big thill for me to see where he was born in in Belfast, Ireland this past spring. I know I'll enjoy the link -- Thanks, Vee!
