There’s a legend of a teardrop that rolled down a cheek one day, and it fell upon a tombstone where a family had gone to pray.  And it sparkled like a diamond as it ventured toward the sod, and its brilliance was so startling that it caught the eye of God. 

That teardrop, born of sorrow for mother who had died, was shed in grief and sadness by her children who had cried.

But it had a special meaning to the Father up above, for that teardrop was just loaded with all her children’s love.

In its loving sparkling brilliance God recalled the teardrop home, and he showed the mother, who no more on earth would roam.

Then God took that brilliant teardrop shed in love on earth afar, and he placed it in the heavens with His brightest morning star.

So when you look into the heavens where ten million stars are spread, you may see a lovely teardrop that in sorrow you have shed.
