bursting at the seams

Reporting again from C.S. Lewis class. It's been a good one. We've read swoon-worthy letters from Jack to the kids. Absolutely sincere and lyrical, whimsical and adorable, kind and clever. And now he's dropped another gem:

“Aslan,” said Lucy, “you’re bigger.”
“That is because you are older, little one,” answered he.
“Not because you are?
“I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger.”

As we grow older, our capacity to understand Him grows with us. The more we grow in Him, the larger, greater, and more brilliant he appears to us. The older we become, the closer we grow to Him, the more of His glory He will reveal to us. And as a corollary, I suppose, the older and older we'll gain a greater and greater capacity for happiness and joy.
Growing up doesn't sound as bad as it's cracked up to be--Peter Pan's missing out.

T minus four days til Holy Week. #justsaying.
