Plant More Trees: Cry Baby On The Loose!!

Okay, I wrote a post this morning and leaned on my computer and hit a button that deleted everything. The post was on all the things we cry about. Well, I did not post that we cry when we are angry but I will add that to the list this time because that is exactly what I did!!

I have cried a lot the last few weeks, so much so that I may have made a tree shortage! It's hard to leave your home, your church family, and your ministry all at once. That is what I have had to do. Thus, all the tears.

Of course, I have always been a "cry baby". I cry at movies. They don't even have to be sad to make me start blubbering! I cry when I see a down-and-out person on the street or a person with some disability. I cry when I'm happy. I cry when I'm sad. I cry when I see a beautiful sunrise or sunset (some would have you believe I am already in bed before the sun sets but don't you believe them. I do wait until the sky turns a light grey!! :D). I have also laughed so hard it made me cry.

Are you shedding tears over a rough time in your life? Are you shedding tears because you've lost someone you loved dearly?

Are you shedding tears of joy? Are you laughing so that it brings tears to your eyes?

God sees them all. He cares when you shed tears because you are suffering and He has compassion for you. He delights when He sees you laugh for joy. In other words, God cares about every area of your life! Rejoice in that. You might even shed a few tears about it!!

Shedding tears of joy for such a wonderful God, Gloria
