Heavenly Tears

I know that God wipes away our tears in heaven.

But I wonder if, perhaps, God’s own tears remain.

At least until the end.

Because regardless that he knows

the end from the beginning,

surely he aches

as he observes the destruction

of his people by his people,

and the destruction of his gift, the earth.

There is an incalculable contrast between

what we do and who he is.

For our Creator

is all goodness and compassion and love.

His very name is mercy.

Are there yet some tears in heaven?
