As though it had never been!

(Octavius Winslow, "Morning Thoughts")

Child of God, soon, oh, how soon! all that now
loads your heart with care, and wrings it with
sorrow; all that dims your eye with tears, and
renders the day anxious and the night sleepless;
will be as though it had never been!

Emerging from . . .
  the entanglement,
  the dreariness,
  the solitude,
  the loneliness and
  the temptations of the wilderness,
you shall enter upon  your everlasting rest,
your unfading inheritance, where there is . . .
  no sorrow,
  no declension,
  no sin,
  no sunset,
  no twilight,
  no evening shadows,
  no midnight darkness,
but all is one perfect, cloudless, eternal day; for
Jesus is the joy, the light, and the glory thereof.
