I love C.S Lewis. I love all his books (hello Narnia!), I love that his journey back to Christianity was a long but thoughtful one and that he became one of the most influential Christian authors.
I like this quote from him because it can be applied to so much. I think of it in two different ways:
1. That when we're reunited with God everything earthly we leave behind won't mean a thing.
2. It can be applied to life here while on Earth. With change.
For me right now I'm anxious about all the things I'll leave behind when Dave and I move to Florida. I'm worried about finding jobs, the house being built on time (and done right), our future friends, etc. BUT what I need to remind myself is that I came to DC with a less than what we're going to start out with. I will be physically leaving behind friends but I've made such amazing ones that I know we'll forever be in each other lives. I have to look ahead and truly trust in God that he will take care of us. Take care of our needs and wants. That in this new place we'll start the next chapter in our lives. It's exciting but nerve wracking as change can be sometimes.
