Count it all Joy…

In James 1, James gives us some pretty hard advice to take: My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience (v 2 and 3.) I mean how are we supposed to be able to find something good: Joy, when bad things happen, I ask you?

A few weeks ago, I went to the doctor about my wrists that have been bothering me (if you remember) something awful. Well, he informed me that I have arthritis in my BOTH of my wrist. Yeah, um how can I have a crochet craft business Old Author is my silent partner? Not seeing the joy, let me tell you!

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing (v 4.) Patience, I guess is the key. I might not be able to speedily crochet baby blankets, but I still can make smaller items or take my time to complete larger more labor intensive work. I might even be able to focus on writing patterns.

Even if the night is bleak- pain if I crochet for to long- but Joy comes in the morning.

So what are you struggling with? How have you overcome some personal difficulty with you crafting?
