“He sets our tears in His sight” by Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354-430)

Comforting Words When Words Cannot Be Uttered…

Tolle Lege

“Prayer is to be free of much speaking (Matthew 6:7), but not of much entreaty, if the fervor and attention persist. To speak much in prayer is to transact a necessary piece of business with unnecessary words. But to entreat much of Him whom we entreat is to knock by a long-continued and devout uplifting of the heart (Luke 18:1, 7).

In general, this business of prayer is transacted more by sighs than by speech (Romans 8:26), more by tears than by utterance (Psalm 126:5-6).

But He sets our tears in His sight (Psalm 56:8) and our groaning is not hidden from Him (Psalm 38:9) who created all things by His Word and who does not need human words.”

–Augustine of Hippo, “Letter 130 (A.D. 412)” in Letters, Volume 2 (83-130), Trans. Wilfrid Parsons (Washington, D.C.: CUA Press: 1953/2008), 391.

Future Posts

To All,

We have been so blessed with all that Tracey has left with us to “tide us over” until we reunite in Heaven. This includes blog posts that she had saved as drafts and not yet posted. We will occasionally be publishing these in the future and wanted to ensure that you know that these are her words. We hope that these future posts will continue to speak to you, as we know Tracey wishes she could be doing in person today.

Thank you for all of your love and support during this time.
