Tears Tell the Tale

A poem from my book Fears and Tears

Tears tell the tale of sorrows' time
that took the joy from yesterday.
I weep for loved ones gone in death.
It has swept them far away.

But God is near, he holds my hand.
His comfort and His praise descend.
One day there will be no more tears,
All earth and heaven He will mend.




Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
The fullness of time has arrived and the grace
of God is revealed for all of mankind.
His arms are wide open to give His embrace.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
The angels deliver the message of peace
for God has sent Jesus from heaven to earth
to deliver from death--its power will cease.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
True life has come for people on earth
The promise is given for those who will seek.
Messiah has promised for each a new birth.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
One day we will stand in his presence in heaven,
free from life's sorrows and sickness and pain,
free from the hold of sin's old nature's leaven.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
Let rejoicing begin and our praises ring out, 
for Jesus has come to show us God's love.
Messiah has come! Of this we will shout.


Someday perhaps I will see my great grandchildren. My sister, who is a year younger, has several great grandchildren. My oldest grandson is 16 (I hope he waits a few years before blessing me in that area!).

Someday I may see 100. I am feeling good at 73; hopefully, if the Lord wills, my health will hold up!

Someday I am looking forward to heaven. Jesus has blessed my life and I look forward to His blessings for eternity! I may not see my great grandchildren in this life. I may not see 100. But I do plan on seeing my Lord Jesus!


A Momma’s view asked that her readers share something good that happened to them. The good thing that happened to me this morning was going to church and getting to join with others in praising our great Creator God. I blessed Him, but in turn I was greatly blessed with the talk of heaven and what it will be like. I have much to do here, but this morning will go with me as I face the trials that come along!

Go to A Momma’s View and share something good that happened to you!


The years go by, but deep inside
my brain says I am still sixteen.
And though the face denies it’s true,
and gray replaces brown in hair,
the age inside can’t be denied.
But as I look back down the road
and see the two that came from me
and seven more who came from them,
I find that I don’t really mind
that I am so much older than
my soul would have me to believe.
Heaven’s door is closer now,
to dwell with Jesus Christ my Lord.
And when my days on earth are done,
my life continues to be lived
in those that I have left behind.
So while my brain says I am young,
and mirror says that I am old,
I’ll smile at inside trickery
and let God fill my life with joy.
