Why Sea of Lilies

In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader they sail to the very end of the earth. Before they get there, the sea is suddenly covered in white. The white is an abundance of lilies. “There seemed no end to the lilies. Day after day from all the miles and leagues of flowers there rose a smell which Lucy found very hard to describe; sweet – yes, but not at all sleepy or overpowering, a fresh, wild, lonely smell that seemed to get into your brain and make you feel that you could go up mountains at a run or wrestle with an elephant.” - C. S. Lewis, Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
This is the sea before a way into Aslan’s country. This is where I want to live. Just on the brink of heaven. Where the fragrance of Father is so strong that it “gets into my brain”, filling me with energy for life that is unexplainable. May we all find our “Sea of Lilies”.
