#BigRead13: Day 43: Seek

#LentPhotos Today's #LentPhotos is 'The Road Travelled' - for which I decided to go to my TripAdvisor pins and screenshot them (taking out the many 'I still wish to go to' pins: #BigRead13 Thoughts So, we're onto the last book in the Narnia series today The Last Battle, in which Aslan was found by those who sought him... combined with the simple - but powerful - verse: New International Version (©2011) (Matthew 7:7) "Ask and…
