A Fairy Dance

God’s Thoughts to Me

To all who mourn in Zion, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes (Isaiah 61:3, NLT).

Soap Bubble Imagination

The beauty of imagination transforms soap bubbles into fairies clothed in exquisite flimsy gowns of flower leaves.

They dance minuets and waltzes with valiant dwarves on the sweet melody of the moonlight serenade.

Crickets play the violins and bullfrogs sing the bass.Their music tells the story of the Divine Presence while fireflies transform the forest dance floor into a glorious rainbow and nature rejoices in light.

Then …

Darkness descends with deceptive lies masquerading as an Angel of Light. It hisses its venomous lies, daring them to imagine they can be masters of their own fate.

It spews venomous fire that causes a forest fire inferno destroying all the life and the fragile beauty of imagination until only ashes remain.

But the Prince of Heaven scoops the ashes into His hands, blowing it softly onto the wings of His Spirit Wind who carries crowns of beauty to His Majesty’s Throne of Grace.

Much love and sweet blessings

  1. “But the Prince of Heaven….” I praise Him that He brings light, His Light, into the darkness. Even when we look at things and see sweet, childlike, lovely, satan can so easily step into that place and change the sweetness, the children, the beautiful, into darkness. But we have a God Who sees all and knows all. I am grateful to ponder this today.

    • Dear Linda
      Yes, dear friend, darkness will not have the last word. Actually, Jesus already overcome the father of all darkness and he knows his time is running out!
      Blessings to you.

  2. Mia –
    My heart is so grateful that He scooped up my ashes. Thank you for reminding me of this today! Grateful that you did!!
    Have a blessed Sunday,
    Joanne

    • Dear Joanne
      Yes, dear friend. He is not at all concerned with “our” good works, only our ashes and weakness. Grateful with you.
      Much love.
      Mia

    • Dear Patsy
      Oh yes, dear one, we are nothing but ashes without our sweet Lord Jesus. He works only with our ashes and weaknesses!
      Blessings
      Mia

  3. “…scoops the ashes into His hand…” Beautiful. A true story of redemption. Such great photos here, too! Blessings to you, Mia. Love, Rachael

    • Dear Rachael
      Thank you, Rachael! I find it so reassuring that our Lord works with our ashes, not our performance!
      Much love to you.
      Mia

  4. Mia, this is so poetic! Your writing reminds me a little of the Anne of Green Gables books written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Your words evoke pictures of such beauty.

    I also like that you pointed out that it is deception to believe you can be the master of your own fate. It is sheer folly to leave out the Prince of Heaven!

    • Dear Jerralea
      Thinking that we can live our life on our own, deciding for ourselves what good and evil is, is the sin of mankind! Thank you, dear friend, for your kind, encouraging words!
      Much love.
      Mia

  5. You tell such a beautiful story with your words and images. I agree with LIzzy…you had me at bubbles! Lovely as always Mia. Many blessings.

    • Dear Beth
      Thank you, my little niece is so fond of me blowing her soap bubbles and she is such a little fairy to me.
      Much love.
      Mia

    • Hi Esther Joy
      The saying goes that men’s toys only become bigger. Well, in the same way women never truly stop loving the beauty and mystery of fairies!
      Blessings to you.
      Mia

  6. I was enchanted by your post Mia. As a lover of fairies I was taken to this magical place…your words and images ushering my spirit toward the Divine. Thanks for reminding us that Darkness never wins. Ashes are blown afresh and made new…beautiful.

    • Yes, dear one, our Lord never works with what we think is important. But when we come to the end of ourselves and hand Him our ashes, He blesses us abundantly.
      Much love.
      Mia

    • Dear Markus
      Thank you, dear bro, but remember we have nothing what we have not received from Pappa! Let all we have bring Him glory!
      Much love
      Mia

  7. Beautiful post, as always, my friend. I love the reminder that He can take those ashes and make beauty. Love and blessings to you! 🙂

    • Hi Ashley,
      This world is so lost I ugliness that I cannot wait for everything to be made new. Yes, our imaginations are also a great gift from His hand.
      Sweet blessings
      Mia

  8. Dear Mia,
    Love how you remind us that sin begins when we can imagine we can live apart from God, and we are in control…so grateful God imagined restoration and rescue with Jesus.
    Blessings my sweet friend 🙂

    • Hi Dolly,
      Yes, this is the curse of mankind that caused the whole world to be lost in darkness: independence!
      Sweet blessings
      Mia

  9. Beautiful post, great inspiration. A wonderful word picture of Love. It is our fallen nature wanting to believe we’re in control of our own fate that always gets us burned… “But the Prince of Heaven scoops the ashes into His hands, blowing it softly onto the wings of His Spirit Wind who carries crowns of beauty to His Majesty’s Throne of Grace.” Amazing imagery.

    • Hi Floyd, thanks again for visiting and encouraging me! Yes, dear bro, our Lord Jesus does it all. He knows that with us, nothing is possible.
      Much love.
