Remember when you first found love how you felt so good
Kind that last forever more so you thought it would
Suddenly the things you see got you hurt so bad
How come the things that make us happy make us sad
Well it seems to me that

Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain

Love can be bitter love can be sweet
Sometimes devotion and sometimes deceit
The ones that you care for give you so much pain
Oh but it's alright there both one in the same

Don't it seem we go through life going up and down
Seems the things that turn you on turn you around
Always hurting eachother if it ain't one thing its another
But when the world is down on you love's somewhere around
Well it seems to me that

Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain

Over and over you can be sure
There will be sorrow but you will endure
Where there's a flower there's the sun and the rain
Oh and it's wonderful there both one in the same

Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain

    Unfortunately, in this life you will have sorrows and pain. It is inescapable. People are sinful and imperfect, and it is true, that we all hurt the ones we love most. But in john 16:33 jesus says, “i have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. ” there is peace in god and in him there is no pain!

    Life is a battlefield... Conquer it and be steadfast. Be strong and of good courage and get through this life as best you can.

    You can't have one without the other. They come as a pair. The one helps you to appreciate the other. Most of life experiences have both at the same time: birth of a child, on-going relationships, new opportunities, and of course ... Life. We must learn to live between the tensions of both.

    We must experience sad times and bad times to more fully appreciate the good and great times. Contrast, polarity allows us to more fully visualize, hear and feel both sides of human emotion. If it never rained we'd take the sun for granted.
