“The heart knoweth its own sorrow and there are times when, like David, it is comforting to think that our tears are put in a bottle and not one of them forgotten by the one who leads us in paths of sorrow.”
― Hannah Hurnard

Tears are falling like the rain
Tears of struggle and tears of pain

Filled with loneliness and despair
A cry for help now found in prayer

“Hear me please” is all that’s heard
As life and death’s fine lines are blurred

A knowing comfort, none more so true,
That I have shed my tears for you. . .

And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:4

    I shall never forget our last minister saying in a sermon that God notices tears.

    Blessings Julie. And prayers. David

    And when it’s hard to even shed tears, He knows and loves and comforts. For the tearful and tearless times, Hugs ~ Laura (I’m in one of those “wish I could cry times”–Life “piled up”. Taking it one day at a time and trusting in Him!)

  5. Oh, Julie, I’m so sorry you are suffering so through this trial with your dad. It breaks my heart and I so wish I could hold your hand and give you hugs when things are so tough. Know at least that I hold you in my heart always. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
