Tears are only temporary

One of my favorite writers is George MacDonald, I’ve written a few entries on him. One thing he wrote was “God has come to wipe away our tears. He is doing it; He will have it done as soon as He can; and until He can He would have them flow without bitterness; to which end He tells us it is a blessed thing to mourn because of the comfort that is on the way.” This is one of my favorite quotes, it seems like while we wait for that comfort, we can be assured that we will not be tested beyond our ability to bear the trial. My mom always used to tell me that growing up. Every difficult circumstance is times with exact precision. Screened though with His perfect love. We won’t suffer one moment more, nor will we suffer more than it necessary. So why am I so hard headed, why does it take me more than one time to learn some lessons, yep that’s what’s going through my head. Guess sometimes the waters are deep. But deep down I always know that everything is going to be alright.   I’ve shed plenty of tears in my lifetime, but mostly I’m a happy person.     What’s the saying, “Tears are often the telescope by which we can see into heaven.”  Finding my quiet times and alone times to be quite healing for me.

Also my bud Scott Pasfield at www.scottpasfield.com has a new book coming out, hope everyone buys it, check it out, it’s amazing.   This is a picture he took of me.  The book is called Gay in America!  http://www.gayinamerica.us/
