Needing Aslan


This week continues to be exhausting as I still am sleepless as mice menances dance in my head while I lay in bed. I would like to escape to Narnia and sit with Aslan. I could rest my head upon his soft fur and listen to him soothe me. I keep moving forward and hoping that sooner than later this problem of mice will be resolved. I am longing for a good night’s sleep. Sometimes when all that is left is the grace of God, a person suddenly realizes how little control over life one has.

The side effect of this event has been to begin to declutter. The 40 bags during Lent that I had hoped to participate in might be surpassed as recycling and garbage bins are full. I am now starting on a collection for the Diabetes association. The vermin has caused me to clean and toss away things that I have been hanging on to. I hope that I will maintain this. I have a long way to go before I am in a decluttered space but being forced to throw away things is a beginning.

When was the last time you wanted to curl up next to Aslan and rest?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
