it's ok to have tears...

DSC01781Over on the side bar of my blog you can see that Ben Witherington's name shows up on the list of "sites I like."  I read his blog because he is a theologian that I can understand, and he seemlessly places the plotlines of today in the midst of the timeless Story of God.  I enjoy his practical approach.  Recently, Dr. Witherington's daughter died unexpectedly of a pulmonary embolism.  In this article in Christianity Today, he writes about the death of his daughter, and in the midst of his reflections he reminds me that, "it's ok to have tears."  From a hard place, he has some important and heartening things to say about grief, hope and God.  It is an article worth reading.
