From the golden-tipped fields of mid-west America to the ancient kingdoms of verdant1(青翠的) Palestine, there is a happy truth to be shared with all who would take heed2. In more recent times, this truth has been expressed as: April showers bring May flowers. This is a truth that promises light bursting from darkness, strength born from weakness and, if one dares to believe, life emerging from death.

Farmers all over the world know the importance and immutability3(不变,永恒性) of the seasons. They know that there is a season to plant and a season to harvest; everything must be done in its own time. Although the rain pours down with the utmost(极度的) relentlessness4, ceasing all outdoor activities, the man of the field lifts his face to the heavens and smiles. Despite the inconvenience, he knows that the rain provides the nourishment5 his crops need to grow and flourish. The torrential rains(暴雨) in the month of April, give rise to the glorious flowers in the month of May.

But this ancient truth applies to more than the crops of the fields; it is an invaluable6 message of hope to all who experience tragedy in life. A dashed relationship with one can open up the door to a brand new friendship with another. A lost job here can provide the opportunity for a better job there. A broken dream can become the foundation of a wonderful future. Everything has its place.

Remember this: overwhelming(压倒性的) darkness may endure for a night, but it will never overcome the radiant(光芒四射的) light of the morning. When you are in a season of sorrow, hang in there, because a season of joy may be just around the corner…
