I love true stories.



I needed to see this today. I thought y'all needed to see it, too. And the best part is that it's true. Read about Christian here.

Now...go watch Narnia. The above clip made me think of Aslan.
Yes, I needed this today.

"Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed."--Revelation 5:5

Why did that make me cry? It's the sweetest thing I've seen in the longest time.

Your title reminded me of "I Love" by Tom T. Hall. :)

Who knew that a lion reunion could bring me to tears???

Caroline said...

I cried too. That was really sweet.

Angela said...

I love this video--even if it like bizarro world Siegfried and Roy. Makes me want to go get myself a pet lion.

Rhea said...

That was so touching. Thank you for sharing it.

Oh, Lula, I'm crying that was so beautiful and I really needed that today too. Pure JOY in that reunion.

CaraBee said...

That really was beautiful. Kind of makes me want a lion cub.

Kat said...

What an amazing story! Especially with Christian being gone for 9 months and then returning right before the guys arrived at the camp. So eerie. And sweet.

Z's Mom said...

It made me cry too.....he missed them. He was like "Is that my mom and dad....IT IS!!" (RUN) How sweet! And he brought his girlfriend too..... Oh, how could they leave him again???

Kim said...

Okay, I won't be watching it after I read the comments! I can't cry anymore today. Maybe tomorrow!

Veggie Mom said...

Angie said...

I have seen this clip before but not read the SNOPES story with it.
Bittersweet.

I have prayed for your little friend Judah and his direct link to Jesus via The Dream. How beautiful. Bittersweet to miss his mama's loving arms. But beautiful that, at 7, he can hold onto this vision for the remainder of his own earthly days.

God Bless, Lula. And thank you for choosing to be transparent. Even if for a moment.

My prayers are with those who loved this beautiful and dear woman.

Tiffany said...

This got me all mushy... for a minute I thought it was going to be a joke and the lion was going to rip the guys head off.. but that didn't happen!

Heather said...

Oh my stars I am BAWLING right now. Seriously. It reminds me of that part in the book when Lucy sees Aslan risen again and they run to each other like that. Okay. I need to go find a tissue.

Mama Dawg said...

I'm like Tiffany. I thought it was going to be a joke at first. So it didn't touch me right away. After I realized it was real and read the story, I watched it again and got all teary-eyed.

Thanks.
