Cry me a River: Weeping Willow by 

Weeping Willow Leeds Castle Grounds.
Best Viewed Full Size.

I was so overcome with joy looking through the long trailing branches to see the form and shape of the winding river. It appears almost as a smile in the distance. Reminding me that through the tears of heartache and pain there is a wonderful release. Something strange and fantastic happens when we cry real tears.

*For me tears are like liquid love leaking out. So cry dear friends, let the love flow, and cry me a river"

John 7:37-38 (NIV) On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come unto me and drink. whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

When He died upon the Cross, Jesus Christ cried out in a loud voice, my God, my God, why have you forsaken me.

It was at that moment He was bearing our sins in His body, the result was separation from His Father like He’d never experienced before. He was paying the price of sin, which is rebellion against and rejection of God’s authority over our lives.

He cried me a river of love. Now I know God’s forgiveness, the Holy Spirit within brings that river of life to the surface in my life, reaching out with that same love to others, even if they don’t acknowledge it. Like they didn’t acknowledge Jesus, but that didn’t stop His self-sacrificial action.

My friends, don’t be put off by a lack of respone to your love in action, keep doing good, keep lavishing love, and keep crying those tears of liquid love, one day it will become a river of life. Cry me a river

    How perfectly have you captured this magnificent and beautiful scene my friend. Can I please come and sit there with you for a while there is so much I would like to talk to you about. Great and magical photograph.

  • Hi Sandra, sure can my friend, we’d certainly have a lot to talk about. This picture reminds me of God’s goodness reaching down from Heaven in the form of his one and only Son, Jesus Christ, and touching the hearts of everyone who’s open to Him. Have a great Easter Sunday Sandra and enjoy your family. Regards, Don.
