THE BURDEN

What if....what if you were able to view your work, your relationships, your life....like this?

What if you were able to say things like

"this is great exercise"
or
"I am so free"
or
"Man these flowers smell heavenly in the breeze I am creating"
or
"I cannot wait to see the smile on her face when she gets these roses"

burdens 
always always always 
come with the ability to see them as blessings

it's a choice we can make 

every. single.day

You're so right - I was dealing with exactly that today as I was hearing about some problems in our rental property. Burdens...the blessing is the new nice tenants.

Is that a "for real" picture? I don't know how he peddles such a large load but then sometimes I don't know how some people can bear the emotional burdens they have to either. Thanks for sharing over at "The Polo House" flower party.
