Close your eyes, Alea... Are they closed?  


Okay, once upon a time there was a little princess with long blond hair and big blue eyes.  She wore a pretty pink dress with ribbons flowing down from her hair.  She was walking through a beautiful forest on a warm sunny day...  Suddenly she came to a wide open field.  The field had long green grass, purple flowers, and white ones.  

And pink?  Alea questions.

Oh, yes, and pink flowers.  The sun was shining down on the girl’s face and the birds were singing.  She couldn’t help herself, but a song came into her heart.  She ran out into the field and danced.  She twirled and danced and sang with the birds in the air as the sun was warm on her skin and the leaves moved with the wind...  And as she danced, God was there, smiling on her, loving on her, and dancing with her.  It was him who put the song in her heart!  He's like a big strong Daddy who is always there....

Was it Eric?  Alea interrupts. 


Was it my Prince?

Ahhh, Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid...  Hmmmm.  Yes, honey.  God is your Prince.  He is your Prince of Peace (Is 9:6), the Prince of Princes (Dan 8:25), the Prince of Life (Acts 3:15). 

Even a two-almost-three year old can sense the longing in her heart to be loved.  

We are still loved and covered under a good and gracious God.  He is a father to the fatherless and a defender of widows (Ps 68:5)  He is our heroic Bridegroom and perfect Peace. 

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Ps 4:8)


  1. I love a child's heart. Beautiful.

    1. Hey Kevin, how do you know Natasha? Did we go to school together?

  2. It amazes me how, in your time of struggling, you can still touch the hearts of those around you. Thank you.

  3. Awe! Some! Thank you, Natasha...continued prayers.

  4. Just beautiful! Little girls certainly know the longing in their hearts.
