The Tears that Flow, or Not…
Study: On average, women spend 20,000 hours crying in their lifetime.
That seems a bit excessive.
I’ll be honest: I’m not much of a crier. In fact, most of my tears are generally reserved for episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and Folger’s Coffee commercials (like one where the son comes home Christmas morning and surprises his family). My mom, on the other hand, cries at the drop of a hat. And I mean, happy – sad – whatever.
Psalm 56:8 says, God keeps record of our tears in a bottle. So, I wonder if we all have a certain # of them. Is the number of tears a person cries as unique as the numbers of hairs on our heads? And I also wonder how many more tears I’d cry, if only I’d let myself. And how many more tears would each of us cry, if we felt safe to?
Hmm, just some randomness on a Wednesday.
