Ambassador Aslan

I am reading the Chronicles of Narnia again. I read the books as a child, but thought they would be a fun, easy read this summer. Since the first movie, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was released the other six books are in the process of being made into movies, too.

C.S. Lewis is such an incredible story teller. his words are both magical and spiritual. I just finished The Magicians Nephew. Chronologically, it is the first book in the Narnia series. The book tells the tale of how Aslan created Narnia and breathed life into the plant life and animals. It also focuses on how the witch came to Narnia and how a lamp post ended up in the middle of the forest.

But, back to the title of the blog, I want Aslan as my Ambassador. I would take him with me to my doctors appointments. One look at him and I am sure that I would get the green light for surgeries ~ no questions asked. Aslan has been know to put the fear of God into people just by being present. On the other hand, he is a gentle giant. A girl can dream ~ right?

I just watched that movie this week and loved it! You know, you have an Ambassador greater than Aslan with you all the time! It would be helpful to have the strenght of a lion (or tiger, or bear) scare doctors into doing what is right for people in need - God has that strength!! I'll pray that through Him you will get that green light!
