Cry Baby

Posted: April 27, 2013 in Uncategorized

I am a cry baby.  I cry A LOT.  When I say A LOT, I mean, like watching cartoons, listening to the radio, reading books.  Last night, I was crying watching Project Runway.  I hide my tears, or at least try too. And I won’t watch anything that I know will make me cry – like “chick flicks”. (They are a big no-no in my book.)   I somehow got tricked in to watching “My sister’s keeper” a few months ago with a friend and startled her when I blurted out half way through “What the heck is wrong with you people watching movies like this that you KNOW are going to make you cry!”  I was angry that the movie made me feel so much pain.

This morning, I was listening to an audio book while running and one of the characters was mad, yelling at everyone and I just started crying!  I mean, behind his anger, I knew there was a person in pain and that…well pains me!  I had to have a little conversation with myself..”Angel, it’s just a book.”  Fictional character or not, I wish I could take everyone’s pain away from them. 

Sadly, I cannot.  But Jesus can.  In Matthew 11:28, Jesus says.  “”Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”   Ahhhh.  Isn’t that great to know?  If you ask for it, God can give you peace beyond your own understanding.  Thank you Lord!
