getting bigger

in anticipation of the movie release in a couple weeks, i have been re-reading Prince Caspian.  i came across this part where lucy interacts with aslan for the first time since arriving back in narnia:

“Aslan, Aslan.  Dear Aslan,” sobbed Lucy.  “At last.”
The great beast rolled over on his side so that Lucy fell, half sitting and half lying between his front paws.  He bent forward and just touched her nose with his tongue.  His warm breath came all round her.  She gazed up into the large wise face.
“Welcome, child,” he said.
“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.”

i pray that every year i grow, that i find Him bigger.
