This painting has such deep meaning to me. This is my heart. The whirlwind at the bottom represents the meaning of," I love you from the bottom of my heart!" It's how I long to be loved because it's how I love. Papa Love ( God ) was showing me that He loves me in such a way. The barbed wire just above it I put up after years of abuse of my love and deep, shocking pain- hence the lightning bolt. Unfortunately, anyone who tried to love me the way I longed, I end up hurting. He placed a golden lock over it as a way to show me that once I learn to allow Him to be all I long for, He will be the one to unlock it and I will safely love with such passion again...and be loved. The cracks all over are deep wounds, which He is healing and bringing forth new life...this is the word of my testimony. the barred window and boards are self explanatory. The arrow shows the fickleness of my heart. On it says , "Welcome" yet it is aimed at a very unwelcoming area. The colors all around promise healing to my heart and a sense of thriving!
