My Dear Child,
I have no doubt you have at some time seen your tears or the tears of other people. Did you know our body produces three types of tears? Tears that lubricate the eyes; those that free the eye of irritating substances, such as smoke and dirt. There are also tears of emotion, which flow when we are sad or happy. Tears are mainly composed of salt water mixed with oils, among other substances that the body produces. God wants our tears to be more out of joy in our hearts than out of sadness.
“Tears of joy shall stream down their faces, and I will lead them home with great care.” Jeremiah 31:9
With much love,
