When I Cry

I know many bloggers often post a video on Sundays but I heard this song today and it just moved me. I couldn’t wait to share it! Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t watch it without the tears flowing. So often I feel like I’ve locked a part of me away. The part that feels and hurts and loves and overcomes. So much has happened over these last ten years that I think I’ve locked it away because it’s too painful to deal with.

Now with my mom’s death I’m faced with the facts of how she died, the truth behind her last hours. It is not pretty. It is painful. Some people might wonder why I would choose to pursue legal action against the assisted living facility if it’s so painful. The real answer is I don’t want anyone else to die like that. That’s why I testified in front of 150 or so important people, politicians, lawyers, health care advocates, impressive men and women. Those that represent the state of North Carolina. And there I was, with a chance to tell about my mom and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others.

So tonight I grieve. There is relief in the tears. As the rest of my house sleeps, I am alone with my pain, but I am never alone when Jesus holds my hand. Just as I know He did when my mom breathed her last. Thank you, God, that there is hope of a better day.

Please take the time to listen. Be moved. Be comforted. Know you are not alone when you cry.

Makin’ a list of all of the good things you’ve done for me.

Lord, I’ve never been one to complain.
But, right now I’m lost, and I can’t find my way.
My world’s come apart, and it’s breakin’ my heart.
But it helps to know; that your heart is breaking too.

When I cry, You cry. When I hurt, You hurt.
When I’ve lost someone, it takes a piece of You too.
And when I fall on my face, You fill me with grace.
Cause nothing breaks Your heart, or tears You apart
Like when I cry.

Alone in the dark, face in my hands cryin’ out to You.
Lord, there’s never been a time in my life,
There’s so much at stake, there’s so much to lose.
But I trust it to You. You’ll bring me through.
And it helps me to know that I’m not alone.

When I cry, You cry. When I hurt, You hurt.
When I’ve lost someone, it takes a piece of You too.
And when I fall on my face, You fill me with grace.
Cause nothing breaks Your heart, or tears You apart

Like when I cry.

You’re the one who calmed the raging sea.
You’re the one who made the blind to see.
You looked through all of heaven and eternity,
And through it all you saw me.

When I cry, You cry. When I hurt, You hurt.
When I’ve lost someone, it takes a piece of You too.
And when I fall on my face, You fill me with grace.
Nothing breaks Your heart, or tears You apart
Like when I cry.

    Thanks Marty 🙂 totally what I needed to hear right now. I cant wait to give you a hug! Keep fighting for your Mom Marty. its hard, its seems daunting, you probably wonder at times if your fight will even make a difference. but I promise you, it will. even if its only one person who hears your story, it will make a difference.

    Marty, if anyone wonders why you are doing what you are, then they simply can’t see the heart you are willing to show in your blog over and over. I’m sorry that your mom suffered so needlessly, and I’m so sorry that you carry that difficult knowledge in your heart. I know what that pain is like, and my heart hurts that you do too. (((hugs)))
