A Falling Star


God’s Thoughts to Me

Then God said, ” Let there be light,” and there was light (Genesis 1:3, NLT).

Light Into Darkness


How many light years
were you traveling
falling through eons
through endless space
through eternal time?

Purposefully navigated
a heavenly messenger
bearing glorious Light
to a dark, lost soul
for just a fragile moment
for only a fraction of time

Much love and sweet blessings.


Linking-up with








I live in a small seaside town on the south-east coast of South Africa. I suffer from fybromyalgia/constant fatigue syndrome. I trust in the Lord Jesus for grace and strength to survive from day to day. He provides me with this and more and I therefore like to try and encourage others with the same illness. I am married and I am the proud mother of two grown sons.

  1. I saw something written somewhere recently that said, “Move towards the light. Avoid the Dark. Head into the wind and the light like sheep.” The Lord is the light and He want us to follow where His light leads. Love the picture of innocent children noticing the light.

  2. I’m with Lisa. I read this over and over. It is so beautiful and profound. You have a particular way of capturing the heart of your reader’s, Mia. Absolutely beautiful… and I’m just a rough around the edges guy. Our Father goes to the ends of His cosmos for us… Thanks, Mia.

  3. Hi Mia,
    How lovely; worth reading over and over again! πŸ™‚ Love the pictures too!

    Blessings sweet sister; enjoy a weekend of blessings and joy,

  4. Good Morning Mia –
    Beautiful. Just beautiful. I had to sit here for a moment & just think upon it. Can we even fathom how long we were on the Father’s mind? Incredible to think about for sure. Thank you for sharing this.

  5. Had to read this several times because it’s so beautiful! So funny how something so short can make me cry so quick. The power of words and the Word. Thanks, Mia! Yes, there is light indeed.

  6. Oh my goodness, Mia. That’s one of my favorite verses. I’ve even got a ministry idea that’s been brewing in my heart for some time – all about Genesis 1 and light into darkness. Your words are beautiful as always. I just love visiting you here and being encouraged by God’s thought to you, which then have a way of speaking to me. Much love and sweet blessings right back to you, dear friend.

    1. Dear Tanya
      Yes, I can just see how our Pappa spoke those words and the Light of the world stepping forward!
      Much love XX

  7. Dear Mia,
