Narnia Winter

If you've never read the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis, then consider this my official recommendation. Lewis is a masterful storyteller for any age and uses allegory in a powerful way that sort of sneaks up on you in the enjoyment of the tales.

In the most famous of the Narnia stories, "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe," an evil witch curses Narnia to a season of winter that lasts forever. But when Aslan comes as the Christ figure, evil is defeated and the thaw becomes imminent.

I feel like I am in a spiritual winter right now as I wait for Christ to melt the curse of evil that coats my family and our lives like ice, so these pictures have great meaning for me. I wanted to share them with you!
