Virgin a Day 7

My shining Daughter, Mia.
Dance is her Art.
Her Prayer.
We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us;
It's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
~Marianne Williamson
Shine on.
I have to thank everyone who has been a part of
Rebecca’s quest.
For me, it has been the week that changed me.
I have prayed more,
been more grateful,
have seen the world and everyone in it
more clearly.
I thought I was on the path before.
Now I am sure.
You have all helped me in my journey.
We are not finished yet!!!
Won’t you join us?
Love, Lisa


  1. i feel as you do...
    beginning with mary, filling in the details of each day with every ones beautiful offerings, ending the day by basking again in the light we are all gathering together!
    even my dreams are imprinted with her presence. i love this practice of keeping the fires burning bright to manifest this glorious divine in all we aspire to.
    thank you for your place in my heart.

  2. Shine on you crazy diamond!! This week has also changed me and through these posts I have met another Mary person right here in my town!! How divine is that!!!

  3. Lovely photos of your dancing daughter and shining Our Lady ~ yes, I too feel changed by the ever presence of Mary in my day and her many faces ~ She is everywhere but especially here with AVAD ~~ thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy AVAD ^_^

  4. ah Mia is simply gorgeous... and talented...you must be so proud... we do share a love of Mary... my one sacred piece from my recovered past... lol.. xox

  5. Yes this has indeed been a grace filled time for me also. I always spend May making altars for Mary and after this little meme will have a perpetual alter to Mary. My Jesus shrine is in my garden. My Holy Family is in my living room. Blessings

  12. Your daughter is a beauty and paired with this light-filled virgin below, your post is a tribute to the divine feminine. Thanks.

  13. O chestnut-tree, great-rooted blossomer,
    Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
    O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
    How can we know the dancer from the dance?~ W.B. Yeats from Among Schoolchildren.
    Lisa,This is simply beautiful. Nothing more pure and divine than a child reaching heavenward with all her bright energy toward the stars of self-acceptance and infinite hope. I am so glad to have gotten to know you better during this time and to have shared this journey with you. Thank you for all that you share with us, the beauty, and the spirit.

  14. It is so inspiring to hear that participating in A Virgin a Day has changed you this week. It's a beautiful thing all the way around!

  15. Stunningly beautiful picture of your daughter. Thank you for sharing her with us!!

  16. Dance is my first love. I understand your daughter's love and passion for dance. I still take ballet at 57 years old.
    But, you are so right. This meme is life changing. I did this last year and once again, the depth, the connection, the spirituality is life changing, for sure.

  17. Peering through into your life this way is a gift in itself, thank you for showing us your treasures, your daughter being at the heart. These words of Marianne Williamson are very liberating in themselves, and here we all are twinkling together like stars in the night sky!

  18. What a graceful dancer!;) I used to dance and I know the joy experienced by doing so!
    I LOVE the shining Madonna!
    I agree that coming together for this meme is so inspiring!I am loving all the poetry, images
    and especially the positive energy.Thank you for your lovely post!

  19. The best part of this post for me today, besides the beautiful photographs, are your words admitting to having a life changing experience because of what you have experienced. We never know everything. Always more learning and understanding to be had. Now, I have learned from your words and I am motivated and inspired to pray more and be grateful. It is a round circle.


  20. Thank you! And I echo everyone who wrote before me.

    Yesterday's photo of mine was from an email I received once upon a time. My children were far to skinny to be like that little jewel! I would claim her in a heartbeat though!

    Peace be with you,

  21. It has been a transformative week, blessed by Mary's Magic. <3
