Have You Ever Cried While In Church?

No I'm not talking about getting teary eyed during wedding vows, funerals or just by listening to the priest. If you've ever tried stopping your tears from falling while in church then that's what I want to know. Yesterday I was awake for 24hrs because I went to a comic convention directly after night shift. Of course not sleeping when we should be sleeping takes a toll on our mind and bodies. I found out that I am more vulnerable and prone to crying when this happens. I was feeling down and reeling from an answer I got from the panel/talk I attended, add my "love problem" and voila, tears almost escaped my eyes on the way home. Thus because I was feeling low, I just had to go to the nearest church first and hope to attend a mass. It turns out I was just in time for the mass when I got there. And when I was there somehow while the priest was talking those darn tears kept spilling over. Had to dab my eyes several times to keep them from being waterfalls. Hooooh. It's the 2nd time this happened to me and both times when it was because of love. Ah life. What a way to end being awake the whole day eh? At least after mass I felt better, I got home safely and slept like an angel.

Most of every prayer and sometimes just singing praises, there is like something touching my heart that I always feel that I am overwhelmed by joy and peacefulness. :)

Yes, there has been a few occasions where I was all by myself in the temple. I sat in front of the Lord and thought about the life of people out there, the sadness in their life and how could anyone help them. That was one somewhere around 2007. Another was during 1999. I was thinking about my late grandfather who passed away in 1995 and the changes that happened in my life ever since. This was a personal affair and very close to my heart. Probably that got me into tears.

Aw... remembering a loss is really something to cry about. If only crying in public, even quietly, wouldn't cause a scene eh?

@owstalaga Well, at that time, the crowd around just does not seem to be a distraction. At least, it did not bother me. I am more sentimental and emotional. I even cry watching some movies.... and people around think me crazy.

@thesids Oh I feel okay with crying when watching movies even in theaters as I know it's not just me who's crying. Am not too sentimental or emotional but a good movie can make me cry too.

I attend a Kingdom Hall, rather than a church. I don't tend to cry there. But I do feel wistful whenever a certain song is played, acknowledging the contributions of elderly ones over the years. We greatly appreciate our older ones and are happy in whatever they are still able to do, rather than lamenting what they are no longer able to do.

there are times when I find myself tearing up over certain songs they play in church at times I can't really say why that is but it just happens other than that I'm fine
