Father Christmas has come, Aslan is coming near and winter is thawing. The long terrible winter in Narnia is over and the White Witch is on the run. Her dwarf declared, “This is no thaw. This is spring!”The White Witch’s winter has been destroyed and spring has sprung for all of Narnia. Everything is coming to life, the birds are singing, the trees and flowers are budding.
Today, we celebrate the birth of Jesus! We welcome the baby Jesus, born long ago in Bethlehem to Mary, a virgin. Joseph, an obedient servant of God, accepted Mary as his wife and father to the new born King.
With Aslan’s coming, winter’s grip has been destroyed.
With Jesus’ birth, sin’s power is on the run.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
This is no thaw. This is spring!
Merry Christmas! ✝️🤍🌟🎄🎁❄️🎅🏻🙏🏻
Thank you for joining me on this journey of Advent in Narnia, it has been an adventure for me and provided new memories and perspectives. ~Peace~
Questions for Reflection:
• Are there other ways that Christmas could be like the coming of spring?
— Starting something new: new traditions, renewing a friendship, reconciling a relationship with Jesus, love more, being Jesus to anyone who needs to know him.
• What new things, in particular, may Christmas be bringing into your life this year?
— New self-realization; recognizing my worthiness because I am a child of God. Trusting myself. Step forward in faith.
~Merry Christmas~Jesus is the Reason for the Season~
