For a person in a relationship with GOD, life will not be free of tragedies, but the attendant misery will be replaced by joy; sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, but it will come.

Jay

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

I agree with Jay that " ...the attendant misery will be replaced by joy... sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly...."

In addition, I would add that misery may sometimes also be transformed into joy.

When I was young, my 15-year-old brother drowned. During his funeral, one of the most hope-filled comforts I received was given me by my pastor's wife:

"You think about him now, and you want to weep. But someday you'll think about him, and smile."

That happened 47 years ago, and she was right! The memory of my brother has proved an instance in which God slowly transformed my misery into joy.

Life is a voyage that's homeward bound. –Herman Melville

Good answers preceed mine. Night symbolizes sadness and is associated with the weeping and sadness and joy is associated with the brightness of the moring light from the first sunrise to the noonday bright. So it saying that the darkest night of weeping and sadness will pass and give way to the joy  that always comes after the darkest night when God gives us the new dawning and joy.

Love everybody!

So I got me a pen and a paper, and I made up my own little sign. I said, "Thank you Lord, for thinkin' about me, I'm alive and doin' fine."
