Seems many things from my childhood seem to flash before my eyes all the time now. With the making of the movie Narnia, I can really feel my inner child. Mike and I went and saw the movie a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it. Another thing that flashes before me is a picture. My grandparents had a big wardrobe that I used to climb into all the time and try and be transported to Narnia, or anywhere magical, sometimes I'd imagine I was there when I got out, with the imaginary snow and everything. Boy did I have a crazy imagination. But one thing I remembered was on the inside of the wardrobe there was a picture hanging on the inside door. It was of Jesus knocking on a door. What a funny place to put a picture, I'm thinking now. Maybe they hung it in the house at one time, I'm not sure, but they kept it inside the wardrobe when I was growing up. I even would imagine Him knocking on the wardrobe when I was little and a magical place He would take me when I opened the door. For some reason that picture has been coming into my mind today. Not sure if I can capture all I'm feeling, but I will try. I guess I'm going back and looking at my thoughts as a child, those of a teenager, a young man, and now. I'll just keep these feeling for me for now, maybe I can articulate on them later. Guess I felt Him knocking at a young age, and still do ready to fill our lives with HIs love.
