To really love is to know how to hurt. Most of us want love without pain, but that is simply immature. In order to truly love means to love when it costs us. We always want what love gives, but it’s not so easy to stand still when love takes from us.
Wrapping my gift in tears; I quietly hand over my offering. My heart is grown through pain. There is an understanding. The value of my offer may never be known to any but me, and He that created my heart to love so selflessly.
