If hope gives you wings, forgiveness will get me off the ground...
The Blue Jay Bird
Among the Sioux, Blue Jay represents “double vision,” meaning greater clarity. They interpreted the Jay’s nesting space among the fir and oaks as symbolizing strength, long life, and endurance. It’s a confident and determined bird, both competitive, bold, and earnest, filled with honest curiosity and passion. Blue jays are considered courageous and loyal animals. They are also deeply energetic and determined.
In our lives, we often get hurt by others, physically, mentally, and spiritually. My anger creates stones in my heart. The other person does not care about my hurt. My hurt just hurt me more…and I become someone that hurts others. Maybe I don’t allow them into my life. Maybe I build thick walls and a sharp tongue. Ultimately my unforgiveness changes into anger and bitterness and I start becoming sick in mind and body. My perpetrator walks away free and I am bound by the rocks of my heart,
Forgiveness is not pardoning, condoning, excusing an offense, or forgetting about it. It is also not the same as reconciliation although that can occur as part of the forgiveness process.
Forgiveness is my choice that sets me free from my chains.
The chains that anchor me to my rocks of memory. I choose to let go. Forgiveness is the stuff of everyday heroes, the ultimate measure of internal peace.
So courageously, I choose to let go, to let my anger fly free, I choose to forgive and the blue light of the clear skies shines into my heart again.

Sneak Peak on the Painting
Cold Wax is an oil painting medium which is a buttery soft paste made of wax mixed with a small amount of solvent and resin. The cold wax paste is mixed with the oil paint on the palette. Cold wax adds body, transparency, and depth to the oil paint. It also speeds up drying time, increases the paint’s work ability, and does not require the special ventilation of encaustic.
