“Tears are prayers too.  They travel to God when we can’t speak.”

~Psalm 56:8~




Inner strength broken

Heart crushed

Emotions volcano

Lava flows



Loss  of parent

Love unfettered

Loyalty undeniable

Truth abounds



Heart of complexity

Deceitful betrayal

Honesty defaced

Trust broken



Love of family

Faithful friends

Blessed life

Heart repaired


The following quotes really touched me today.  I hope they speak to you as well.  Blessings!

“The rose and the thorn and sorrow and gladness are linked together.”


“Tears come from the heart and not from the brain.”

~Leonardo daVinci~

“Tears are a sign of sadness.  Sadness touches others’ feeling, whereas laughter cannot touch others very deeply.  Laughter is something on the surface, whereas grief comes from within.  Since grief comes from a person’s inner being, it must also enter into the inner being of others.  All who have experience in human life acknowledge this.  The shedding of tears is a sign of a broken heart.  Therefore, before tears can flow from the eyes, they must flow from the heart.”

~Watchman Nee~
