    The idea of God crying has always seemed ludicrous to me. What would he be crying about?

    lynn: it’s an anthropomorphism for sure.

    if you had entitled it “jar of christ’s tears”, it would have made more sense to me…because jesus indeed “wept”. still love ya, david!

    I first of all assumed they were my tears (and yours) that he’d been collecting..

  5. I love it too! Reminds me of the semtiments of one of Amy Grant’s recent songs:
    “God loves a lullaby
    In a mother’s tears in the dead of night
    Better than a Hallelujah sometimes

    “We pour out our miseries
    God just hears a melody
    Beautiful, the mess we are
    The honest cries of breaking hearts
    Are better than a Hallelujah

    “The tears of shame for what’s been done
    The silence when the words won’t come
    Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes
    …”
    I do believe God cries all these tears before we do – it’s His tears that facilitate ours.
