He Understands


Just wanted to share this quote from C.S. Lewis's Magician's Nephew with you. It made me cry and I had to turn my back and mess with the lid of the peanut butter jar so my little sister wouldn't see.

"But please, please - won't you - can't you give me something that will cure Mother?" Up till then he had been looking at the Lion's great front feet and the huge claws on them: now, in his despair, he looked up at its face. What he saw surprised him as much as anything in his whole life. For the tawny face was bent down near his own and (wonder of wonders) great shining tears stood in the Lion's eyes. They were such big, bright tears compared with Digory's own that for a moment he felt as if the Lion must really be sorrier about his Mother than he was himself.

  2. Wow...I don't know what to say other than: wow.
    Thanks for posting this, dearie!
    God is so good.

  3. I've always loved that quote. It's one of the best parts in all of the Narnia books. And it just becomes more and more relatable as the years go by.

  4. Ruthiey, it made me cry to read it too. Thanks for sharing, dear friend!

  7. Hmmm...I love the way Lewis brings things to life so well. And I love the picture of Aslan as Jesus...so encouraging. :)
