Moved to tears, a phrase I can often say. I can be caught reaching for a tissue while watching a sentimental love story. So you can imagine the tears at special times and events in my life.

My eyes were timidly brimming with tears as I walked down the isle to join my soon to be husband, some thirty-three years ago.

At the birth of each of our children, as they were placed in my arms, they were each greeted with a teardrop or two on their tiny soft little heads.
Along with tears of joy some tears of sorrow have found their way.

When my mother was called home to be with her heavenly Father. I felt the pain to my very soul. More than ten years have gone by, and my eyes still fill with tears at the thought of my mom.

Tears of joy, tears of sorrow. In Psalms we are told God has them all in a bottle, He must have a few bottles of mine by now.

When I come before His throne, spending time in His presence, I am often moved to tears. I feel my heavenly Father put His arms around me and let me know He is there. Through His mercy and through His grace Heís brought me through it all.

I am now reaching for a tissue at the thought of His mercy, His grace, and all the blessings He has bestowed upon me, His child.

Yes Rita and doesn't it seem that the more time we spend with the Lord the easier the tears come?Nice entry. In the beginning paragraph I think you meant 'aisle' not 'isle'?

Thank you Darlene! Yes, I meant aisle. Blessings, Rita

A wonderfully touching article. Very nicely done.

Very good article. Tears are a language that God understands. I used to sing that old song, "It's all right to cry, crying makes you feel better" to my children when they were growing up. One of my favorite scripture verses is "Jesus wept." Keep on writing for His glory. Irvin
