Quote of the Day Challenge Day One

I completely forgot I was tagged in the "Quote of the Day" challenge by Treesa. :}

Here's my quote for day one:

"I was the lion who forced you to join with Aravis. I was the cat who comforted you among the houses of the dead. I was the lion who drove the jackals from you while you slept. I was the lion who gave the Horses the new strength of fear for the last mile so that you should reach King Lune in time. And I was the lion you do not remember who pushed the boat in which you lay, a child near death, so that it came to shore where a man sat, wakeful at midnight, to receive you."

                                                                                                      ~Aslan, The Horse and His Boy

While this is kind of an unconventional quote, it's from one of my very favorite parts of The Horse and His Boy, when Aslan introduces himself to Shasta, the main character, and gives him the Narnian version of "Footprints in the Sand." After Shasta shares all of the hard things that have happened to him on his journey, Aslan reveals his hand, or "paw," in each part of the supposedly negative things that happened. :) It's such a great reminder to me of how God works in my life. :)

I'm supposed to tag three people, but I think I'm just going to leave this open to whoever feels like participating. (I know, I know, I keep cheating at this stuff. Sorry, guys.) ;)
