Now that Aslan is wrapping up Narnia and the story is coming to a close I am feeling a bit sad about its coming to an end. I feel as if I have been on a very journey with a group of friends. Friends that have grown close through many adventures and experiences we have shared.
When returning from a long journey you do feel glad about getting home and getting caught up with friends and family, but there is a part of you that doesn’t come home. You have changed. You have been through the thick and thin. You see everything through a new set of eyes. The old has past and a new world has dawned for you. The Chronicles of Narnia is like that.
The seven books (novelettes) that make up the Chronicles of Narnia is an adventure that is seen through the eyes of the participating children from this world and the Narnian animals. Each novelette builds upon the last. The story and its adventures feature many aspects of Narnia and its creator Aslan. Aslan was the king of kings and always made things right. Whom more than Aslan has the right to bring Narnia to a close?
“All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
Farewell to Shadowlands, The Last Battle, The Chronicle of Narnia.
