Maybe

Just a thought…

Maybe when I am a bit weepy over things said or songs sung…
Maybe when tears slip down my cheek as I watch my family play…
Maybe when my eyes leak at the mention of the cross
or the sight of a new born babe…
Maybe when I cry at sweet memories of days gone by
and those gone too soon….
Maybe when I weep at thoughts of the glory to come
and hope restored …

Maybe I am not in sin or faithless.
Maybe I do have the joy of the Lord.
Maybe I grieve as one who has hope is Christ.
Maybe I am trusting Jesus as I grieve,
as I miss those who have gone to be in His presence.
Maybe I am simply more tender now than I was before.
Maybe these tears are because Heaven is more real
now that many I love live there.
Maybe I cry because I see my sin,
my sin nailed on that cross where Jesus died.
Maybe my tears are tears of gratitude for all He did
when He who knew no sin became sin that I might become the righteousness of God.

Maybe these are tears of grief mixed with tears of gratitude for all He is and all He has done for me
and for those I love who are now at home with Him in heaven.

And maybe, just maybe, these tears are precious to God.

  1. This speaks to me so! I’ve always been a crier; so the tears have been multiplied in this 7 years since the loss of Robert. I am definitely more tender than I was before. “Tears of grief mixed with tears of gratitude”~ I love that- so true. Thank you for these beautiful words that I missed before!

    Maybe the tears are the proof of the love you share with God and the gifts He has given you
    Maybe the tears are the proof of the love you Both have for the Sons
    Maybe the tears are blessed because of all that you wrote above.
