Today is the birthday of our dear Jack!!!!!! *loud cheering* I calculated today that if C. S. Lewis was still alive, he would be around 117 years old!! I really had not fathomed how long he has been around. (He was born in 1898)
Wow. I'm so grateful for this amazing man, and the talent that God gave him. I'm so grateful mom read me The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe all those years ago, and that I picked up one of his books. I'm so grateful for the adventures I've had, and the new world I discovered in Narnia.
I'm so thankful for the bits of wisdom that he spoke, for the great insight into profound, deep things that he has been able to share in his writing.
|Yes, I stole this from you Olivia.. :)|
I can't wait to read more of his stuff: several of his books are on my Christmas list. ;) (Because what else would I ask for??)
Anyway... Here's to my favorite author; an avid reader, a firm believer, a unashamed dreamer, a gifted writer, and an inspiration to us all. Here's to C. S. Lewis!
