wilderness of 'bitter sweets'
Winslow, "Life in Jesus")
With all its hopes and glory, this is but a
poor world, even if we could possess the
whole of it. Take this world in its best attire,
it is but a
wilderness of 'bitter sweets'.
I increasingly feel that this poor
world is not my rest; it is polluted!
Go where he may, rest where he will,
trials and crosses await the Christian.
