Tears are not a sign of weakness. Often when we cry in front of people they try to stop us. They seem to be uncomfortable with our tears. Maybe they think that are weak because we cry. I think that our tears are a tribute of our love. Our tears seem to cleanse our soul and connect us more with our children. Tears relieve the tension that has been building inside. If we don’t cry we would explode. Once we cry we feel better.
Tears are a gift from God. They speak more loudly than words of how deeply we feel about our loss. We should never be ashamed of our tears. Do not hide your tears especially when you have such deep sorrow. I know that tears cannot give us back our lost treasure.
In heaven there are no tears. “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain…” Revelations 21:4
