When the Tears Flow

I had a doctor’s appointment this week for a checkup. When I walked into the office the tears began to flow. This was the doctor’s office that Jo Ann and I had taken Mom to in the past. Sitting in that office brought back to my mind all of those memories.

Memories are good, they can bring joy, but they can also cause the tears to flow.

My doctor, who is a Christian and understands the tears of grief, sat with me and gave me words of comfort. Not just the clinical words, but words that were from her heart.

There hasn’t been a day that has gone by since Mom and Jo went to be with Jesus that the tears haven’t flowed. Some days they flow less than others, but they still flow.

This morning as the tears were coming down I was reminded of an old song I had sung in church years ago.

           Tears are a Language God Understands

Often you’ve wondered why tears come into your eyes
and burdens seem to be much more than you can stand.
But God is standing near; He sees your falling tears.
Tears are a language God understands.

God sees the tears of a broken-hearted soul.
He sees your tears and hears them when they fall.
God weeps along with man and takes him by the hand
Tears are a language God understands

When grief has left you low, it causes tears to flow.
When things have not turned out the way that you had planned
But God won’t forget you, His promises are true.
Tears are a language God understands.

We can let the tears flow because God is listening and He understands.
