Better than a Hallelujah (lyrics) Amy Grant

joy & sadness, both!

"I don't know if this is a season of sweetness or a season of sadness. But I'm learning that neither last forever. There will be, I'm sure, something that invades this current loveliness. That's how life is. It won't be sweet forever. But it won't be bitter forever either. If everywhere you look these days; it's wintery, desolate, lonely, practice believing in Springtime. It always, always comes, even though as days like today it's nearly impossible to imagine; frozen ground, trees bare and spikey. New life will spring from this same ground. This season will end and something entirely new will follow it.
