The Gift of Tears – Christine Valters Paintner

April 8, 2020

So very relevant today… thank you Christine ❤️☘️

“According to the desert fathers and mothers, the longer we practice and work to heal our places of wounding, the more we will encounter the rising up of the ‘gift of tears.’ These tears are signs of both our sorrow over how we have rejected our true nature and our joy in our discovery of the beauty of God.”

What would it be like to see tears as gift and grace?
