Home and Holiday

As I am working my way through The Lord of the Rings and entering into the world that Tolkien created, I find it makes me long for heaven. Sam’s description of Lothlorien to Frodo really captures this feeling:

“I’ve often wanted to see a bit of magic like what it tells of in the old tales, but I’ve never heard of a better land than this. It’s like being at home and on a holiday at the same time, if you understand me. I don’t want to leave” (361).
