What about our Tears

Whether this little research reveals significant facts or not, there seems to be many verses in scripture that reveal the significance of our tears. Who doesn’t find this interesting is beyond me.
Put thou my tears into thy bottle (psalms 56.8)
I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal you ( 2 kings 20.5)
She began to wash his feet with tears (luke 7.38)

Looking At Tears Under A Microscope Reveals A Shocking Fact.
One day Rose-Lynn Fisher wondered if her tears of grief would look different compared to her tears of joy, so she began to explore them up close under a microscope.

She studied 100 different tears and found that basal tears (the ones that our body produces to lubricate our eyes) are drastically different from the tears that happen when we are chopping onions. The tears that come about from hard laughter aren’t even close to the tears of sorrow. Like a drop of ocean water each tiny tear drop carries a microcosm of human experience. Her project is called The Topography of Tears.

Joseph Stromberg of the Smithsonian’s Collage of Arts and Sciences explained that there are three major types of tears: basal, reflex, and psychic (triggered by emotions). All tears contain organic substances including oils, antibodies, and enzymes and are suspended in salt water. Different types of tears have distinct molecules. Emotional tears have protein-based hormones including the neurotransmitter leucine enkephalin, which is a natural painkiller that is released when we are stressed. Plus, the tears seen under the microscope are crystallized salt and can lead to different shapes and forms. So even psychic tears with the same chemical composition can look very different. Fisher said, “There are so many variables—there’s the chemistry, the viscosity, the setting, the evaporation rate and the settings of the microscope.”

Like snow flakes and fingerprints, no tears are alike. I can’t believe the difference between all of these. If you found this post interesting, share it with others.

Angels In My Hair

I just recently came across this woman and her story. I have come across many like it, but also nothing like it. I found it to be an uplifting read and enriching for me and my faith in my church. It is an astonishing read for anyone regardless of your religion – whether you have one or not – of which I feel the same way about the Book of Mormon, and yet there is something here for you in them.

ABOUT LORNA

I have been seeing and talking with Angels since I was a baby. This may sound extraordinary, but I’m also just an ordinary person dealing with the challenges and joys of everyday life, just like you.
I live in rural Ireland. I’m a mother with four children, who are now largely reared. I was widowed some years ago and now I am finally doing what the Angels have been asking me to do for several years and talking openly for the first time about what I have seen and learned from them.

I know that some people are cynical about the topic of Angels, but the very fact that you are curious enough to check out this facebook page means that the Angels are inspiring you to look a little further.

Approach this facebook page with an open mind. Regardless of your religion – whether you have one or not – there is something for you here. Even if you say you don’t believe in Angels, suspend your disbelief for a short time and have a look. What have you got to lose? http://www.lornabyrne.com
