Trusting God Even with Your Tears

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.” ~ Washington Irving
As Nicholas was learning, having faith doesn't mean you can't cry. It just means that you can trust God, even with your tears." ~excerpt from St. Nicholas: The Believer, by Eric and Lana Elder
"Jesus wept." ~John 11:35
