Tears bottles

April 27, 2015

You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?



“Tear Catchers (lachrymatory) were commonly used during Ancient Roman times, with mourners filling glass bottles with their tears, and placing them in tombs as a symbol of their respect for the deceased. It was also used to show remorse, guilt, love and grief…Tear bottles were designed with special seals, which allowed the tears to evaporate. By the time that the tears were assumed to have evaporated, the mourning period was considered over.”

    What a great pairing of the psalm and the picture.

    I love when the Bible is brought to life like this! 🙂
