To Leave the War House Locked

To Leave the War House Locked ~ original oil painting by Michael Douglas Jones

Day 7  #reverb11 Forgiveness

In my past, there was a warehouse where I stored my weapons of war.  My anger and hurt were in there, with my drawn out plans of vengeance against those that had wronged me.  I locked it deep inside me as I went about my days, and now the lock has rusted shut; I cannot get back in, and I've forgotten what I was fighting about.

Perhaps it is time to forgive those that have wronged me and to leave the war house locked.


  1. I LOVE this painting. I also love this idea, that forgiveness might not always be a choice, but a necessity. The only way to go. Forward. Onward.

  2. oh man. houses as places as hearts as paintings. this is amazing. love, love, love.

  3. love this, so powerful!

  4. I LOVE the painting too! Wow! You are multi talented. Love the painting. I actually said the word "wow" when I opened this blog post. wow.

  5. I agree with the other comments, the visual along with your words really paints the full picture of your sentiment. Locked away for all time...
