We Need Rain, As We Need Tears…

Quotes

We go through many ups and downs in life, we cope the best way we know-how. We all see things independently with a socially collective view; we see things in our very own fashion. Some deal with a lost item in the same way that someone else would deal with losing a loved one. We each have our very own personality, this is where our beauty lies.

If we choose to focus on one circumstance as a whole we may find ourselves getting lost in the moment. If we are focusing too hard on bad experiences we begin to see a pattern that has taken over our whole life, we see a bad life. Focusing on the bad leaves the good hidden. In this situation, we find overwhelming pain.

We could cope with our pain by bottling everything up. Although, how long can we pull this off before all our pain surfaces? Sometimes, pain attacks innocent people. We hold things in for so long that simply losing an item turns into a dramatized apocalypse.

Then God made tears! How beautiful they are, if you stop to examine them. If you stop to compare them to the bigger picture, to the rain for instance. We need rain as we need our tears!

The rain is imperative for existence on Earth. The rain keeps our atmosphere from overheating. We need rain for the oxygen that we breathe. Our bodies wouldn’t survive without the hydration the rain provides. We need rain in order for our plants to grow, which nourishes our bodies. If we go without rain the environment begins to die, but when God uses the rain to nourish our Earth we see beautiful colors of green. We see life!

Tears have their own components of necessity. Tears contain an enzyme called lysozyme that aids in preventing infections. As the rain nourishes our environment with water, as do our tears nourish our soul. Tears serve as a biological function. The body knows the difference between tears of irritants and tears of heartache. For when there is heartache our bodies release a stress-reducing hormone (adrenocorticotropic), and our natural pain killer (leucine enkephalin). Tears balance our stress hormone levels.

The rain gives us a beautiful rainbow to remind us that the sun is near and we will see beauty again in the form of light, as our tears are a reminder that there are better days to come!
