“Miracle Dancer”

2 Minute Time-lapse to watch Natalie paint this art

Excerpt from “50 Oil Paintings Inspired by my Christian Faith”

When I was 16, sitting in a wheelchair after a seizure, the doctor said, “She will never get out of that chair again.”
I refused to believe it
I danced in my next recital.
I danced ballet, tap, and jazz routines after being in and out of a wheelchair and unable to fully walk for months… and I won a trophy!
Never give in,
Never give up,
when they tell you, you’ll never walk-
Fight through the pain,
Fight through the fear.
Life is the DANCE!

-Natalie Buske Thomas

Oil painting “Miracle Dancer” by artist Natalie Buske Thomas

Psalm 77:14 NIV

“You are the God who performs miracles;

you display your power among the peoples.”

Believing in miracles, prayer, faith, self-belief, confidence, positivity, a determined spirit – all of these things can lead to amazing outcomes. But, as we exist in the human condition of mere mortals, we do not have a perfect, immortal life on this earth. There are times when we don’t get the miracle we long for, and for those times, sometimes the only miracle we can have may be peace. When we are at peace with what is, and what can never be, we are delivered from the worst parts of grief and suffering. So even when we don’t get the deliverance we hope for, we are delivered through hope itself – hope of a beautiful future in the next life, and courage to power through whatever we are dealing with in this one. But, sometimes we DO get what we want. For those times when we receive the miracles we pray for – REJOICE!

Enjoy Natalie’s art on fun, creative, and classy gifts for you and your family!
