Lots of things may make us sad, and you know what, it is okay to feel that way. Jesus felt sad too. God understands our sadness. The Bible says, ‘You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle.’ – Psalm 56:8

  • Take an aqua bead and think about something that makes you sad.
  • Drop the aqua bead representing your ‘tear’ into the big bottle.
  • If you want to, you can write or draw your sad thing onto a big tear drop and stick it onto the cross as a prayer.
