Tissue Truth


For various reasons, I have been going to sleep feeling sad the last several nights.

Having run out of tissue beside my place of slumber, yesterday morning I went under the cabinet and grabbed a new box, placing it on the night stand next to my side of the bed.

Last night when I laid my head on the pillow, once again, tears were flowing.  I rolled over to grab a tissue and saw these words…


It startled me out of my sorrow.  Staring at me on a tissue box, of all things, was the truth that even though my tears tend to flow in solitary moments, I am never alone in my brokenness.  God has promised, “I’m there when you’re sad.”

Strangely, I found true comfort for my aching heart by reaching for a tissue.

    Christina! I have been following your blog for a little while now but I rarely comment. I am sorry about that. I cry with you, smile with you, reflect with you… and love the Lord with you. I love your tissue box and I am glad that it was able to bring you some comfort in your time of need. Big hugs.
