This past year God has impressed upon me that I need to accept those situations that come into my life with joy even if they cause pain. It is one of the reason I do Multitude Mondays each week counting my gifts from God. Gratitude makes joy even in the pain. The flower Bearing-the-Cost speaks of forgiveness...being the "fall guy" for someone else's sin. Over the past few years God has worked me through the hard chore of forgiving those that have wronged me...bearing the cost and letting go of the pain.
Hinds' Feet is well worth the read!
