    Today when I found out a 14 year old young man from our youth group lost his battle with cancer around 1:30 this morning.

    Yesterday I realized that though I have gained so much ground in my quest to be free of legalism, I'm not free yet. Particularly in my parenting. It hurt my heart and I cried.

    The last time I REALLY cried was at my mother's funeral nearly 19 years ago. Does getting misty-eyed and shedding a few tears count--even though I didn't make any crying sounds as I did with my mother? I do that fairly often with certain movies. The song, "I should have Been Crucified" always make me break down and cry like a baby.

    I was nearly thrown out of a church over that song.

    A few weeks after my father's funeral. I have a hard time with grief in that I push it down and deal with it later (just like my mother does). It took a while before I was able to let it out.

    Worship moves me, but I haven't had any real amount of tears in worship in quite a while now. The Lord is softening my spirit in this matter, but past events still have some lingering effects.

    I can't remember about crying, but this tread is beginning to make me feel sad.

    I find it really hard to cry but it is a great relief when I do.
    I got pretty upset by a diabolical cartoon in the French rag "Le Monde" today though.

    I relate with most who have posted on this thread.

    The last real cry I had was only a few weeks ago, and it was a cry of joy, thankfulness, and relief to the Lord for His goodness to me when I deserve otherwise.

    I've never cried from sadness much, but like someone has already pointed out, when I do it is a great relief. I cannot say with certainty when I last cried from sadness, and I hate to say this, but it was probably from a stupid chic flic that my wife and granddaughter were watching that I shed the last couple of sad tears. Egad!
