I cried with you

When we decided to start a family,
I cried for you.

When we found out we were infertile,
I cried for you.

When we decided to become foster parents,
I cried for you.

When you were placed in our care,
I cried for you.

When they took you away,
I cried for you.

When you came back,
I cried for you.

When you started school,
I cried for you.

When you chose Christ,
I cried for you.

When I got mad at you,
I cried for you.

When you got mad at me,
I cried for you.

Last week when your heart was breaking,
I cried with you.

2 Corintians 2:4

For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have so abundantly for you.

  1. That is where that important shift comes, isn’t it? When we can ‘rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep’.

    Beautiful stuff.
