Saturday night, Sky and I went with his family to see the new Narnia movie. I have to give it a thumbs-up, we really enjoyed it. We are going to take the kids to see it later this week, when, hopefully- we can get free tickets.
I enjoyed most, the feeling the movie conveyed that as Christians, we really are not of this world, that we are sojourners here for a short time only. At different times in our lives, we catch glimpses of grace- much like the scene in the subway, as holes appear in the tile and glimpses of Narnia show through.
..."These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." Hebrews 11:13
Here's a link to hear the last song in the movie, it was perfect. There's no movie music video, just the song, so I will only link it.

I did a book review here*. I hope they did a good job with it. No talking dogs or obnoxious fighting pandas- but a good story that actually requires thought. A rare thing in children's movies now a days, it seems...
