I was sitting here (procrastinating, natch), trying to figure out why Narnia seems like such a real world to me. I know that sounds odd, but I'm not quite normal, so just bear with me, please. I think it's because it really is the closest way for me to come to terms with two such paradoxical ideas of God. It's really hard to grasp that the same One who is so mighty, so awe-inspiring, so high... all these concepts that even on a human level are beyond us, and then when it's in the God of the universe, it's even harder to come to terms with His holiness. We are so tiny and can't help but be silenced of our foolishness in His presence.
And then He is our closest friend. There is none closer... Friend. We throw that word around a lot with Him, but I don't think we really grasp the impact of that one either. What do we do with our friends? We laugh, we joke around, we have deep discussions, we cry on one another's shoulders. Think of it... sharing a joke with the Almighty? And yet He is the greatest friend we have, because He is the inventor of friendship, and we can laugh, cry, joke, talk, etc. with this Great One.
And if I try to think this out any further, that headache that finally left about 15 minutes ago is going to come running back, so I'll stop now.
