Make the world your Narnia

Ocean and I have been reading the Chronicles of Narnia as is tradition in my family. We read them as devotions as a family instead of the Bible and the tradition continues to read and quote from them often. "That's right sir! Couldn't have said it better myself!!"

We are reading them at naptime and bedtime and this passage resonated with me last night.


"Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things-trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that's a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We are just babies making up a game, if you're right. For babies playing a game can make a play world which licks your real world Hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play world. I'm on Aslan side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. ".                  -Good Old Puddleglum
