Jeremiah 31:13

I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow.

Human beings by nature want to hug life and hold onto it, choke it down, save it and keep it.  But Jesus taught there’s only one way to know life’s meaning:  We gain happiness by letting go of this life.  What is joy?  It is Christ.
