Day 13  of my 30 Day Thankfulness Challenge; I am thankful for Tears. 😀

Much of my healing has come through tears.  It’s ok to cry. Tears are a part of the therapy; a part of the healing.

Christopher Morley said that Heavy Hearts, like Heavy Clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.

Day 13 tears copy

All tears aren’t  just for bad, sad things but also happy and glad things. Tears are a language all its own.

The sorrow which has no vent in tears may make other organs weep. ~Henry Maudsley

Similar to a pressure cooker, Tears are the body’s release valve for stress, grief, sadness, despair, anxiety, and frustration. What truth herein because if we don’t have any kind of vent of stressed pressed self we allow for disease in every part of our body.

Tears are purging, cleansing way to rid the toxins of negativity of life. It takes courage to do this so tears are in fact a sign of courage.

Laura’s Story

Lyrics:
We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?

We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel you near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if each promise from Your Word is not enough
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we’d have faith to believe

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win, we know
That pain reminds this hearts,
That this is not, this is not our home…..
It’s not our home

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?

What if my greatest disappointments,
Or the aching of this life,
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy.
What if trials of this life,
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise?
