I ugly cried in public

I am an emotional person.  Tears come easily.  They always have.  In fact, if you start to cry, I am most likely going to cry with you.  It is just who I am. 

Recently, I got to hear a missionary speak.  She shared about the work being done in Papua New Guinea. 




I was already feeling teary when she showed a video of the people they were ministering to.  The tears started to flow as I listened to the testimony of a man in the tribe. 

When they showed the first baptisms in the tribe... 

I lost it.

I mean blow your nose, sniff and snort, lost it.

You know what, I didn't even care.

I was completely overcome.

I can only imagine what Heaven will be like.

27 All the ends of the earth
will remember and turn to the LORD,
and all the families of the nations
will bow down before him,
28 for dominion belongs to the LORD
and he rules over the nations.
Psalm 22:27-28


  1. Farm Chick...I can appreciate the sniffing/snorting kind of crying over things that touch God's heart. I'm grateful for your tender blesses those who know you.

    Your post reminds me of my friend Donna from NWCC...good stuff.

  2. Your tears did not fall alone. It was a moving presentation.

  3. And then when Lucas became the missionary and headed to other tribes to share the gospel? That really got me going.
