They rub their legs.
And I know.
Lately I've been growing.
I'm still 5'10".
My clothes still fit.
Our church is humming and vibrant. The character of Jesus has been taught to me in new ways, or maybe I'm just "getting it" for the first time.
This whole process is a bit like what the girls are going through.
The more I understand about Jesus, the more I see the ugliness in my heart he died to save. It hurts to recognize my sin. It pains me to see how I rebel and betray the one who so lovingly created me. It smarts to see what a jerk I am sometimes.
But the ache is necessary.
And the result is growth.
God gets bigger.
Grace gets bigger.
Love gets bigger.
“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.”
