Cry Me a River

Sue’s Views
This tree is known as a ‘weeping willow’. They usually grow alongside a river bank and ….. according to Wikipedia ….. they are all females! That accounts for much! But male or female ….. we all feel sad at times. Tears are the overflow of pent up emotion and they are precious to God. In fact He collects our tears in a bottle. That tells me that we shouldn’t waste our sorrows. They help us to grow stronger and make us more understanding of others. The shortest verse in the Bible says ‘Jesus wept’. His tears were for his friends who were grieving ….. but mostly for the unbelief of mankind. He can identify with our sadness. He can also turn our mourning into dancing ….. and our sorrows into joy!
