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?
