We, the called and faithful and chosen, we will drive away our griefs and set up our banners of confidence in the name of God.  Let others lament over their troubles.  We, who have the sweetening tree to cast into Marah’s bitter pool, with joy will magnify the Lord…..We are ordained to be the minstrels of the skies.  Let us rehearse our everlasting anthem before we sing it in the halls of the New Jerusalem.  We will be glad and rejoice: two words with one sense – double joy, blessedness upon blessedness. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Song of Solomon 1.4.
