Have finished all Chronicles of Narnia. I guess God spoke to me best in The Last Battle:

"You do not yet look as happy as I wish you to be."

I thought about this for quite a while.

At first it seemed selfish - as if I was concerned only with my own happiness. But then I realized that to be happy with a gift from God is to make Him happy, to be a gracious recipient who happily views the blessings He's given.

It is far worse to receive blessing at the hand of God and not be thankful or grateful.

I am thankful for all I have. I hope to someday be as happy - and to look as happy - as He wishes me to be.
