Laugh Together, Cry Alone

You know it seems to me that society thinks that people laugh together but cry alone. I know that there are times when you do cry alone, but that doesn’t always have to happen. Sometimes you cry and you’re surrounded. Being in a church filled with prophetic people is somewhat overwhelming when you’re trying to hide in the crowd. It’s not always easy to slip in and out, not that I would want to do that. If you don’t attend a church like that you should.

You would think when you laugh the whole world laughs with you but would rather not be around when you’re down. This also is not true. Even when what’s bothering you is hard to put in words, those people who love you don’t care why you hurt, they just care that you hurt. All they want to do is make it better. They are not interested in prying into your pain unless you chose to let them in. What they care about is that you hurt. They say and do things to make you realize that you matter to them. A phone call goes a long way.

So the next time you feel like crying, remember you don’t have to do it alone. Turn around and I’m sure there is someone there that is willing to cry with you . . . or at least hold you as you do. Laugh together, cry together. Thank you to all those people out there not willing to let people cry alone. God notices and so do the people you touch.
