ONLY FOR A NIGHT …

After I took the photo below I noticed a tiny raindrop (teardrop?) in the center of the beautiful and large sunflower.  It made me think of how small our present sorrows will one day seem when compared to eternal unending joy with the Lord.

Psalm 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Barnes’ Notes:

The sorrows of this life are but for a moment, and they will be succeeded by the light and the joy of heaven. Then, if not before, all the sorrows of the present life, however long they may appear to be, will seem to have been but for a moment; weeping, though it may have made life here but one unbroken night, will be followed by one eternal day without a sigh or a tear.
