Buried in the positive messages of blessing and prosperity in the book of Proverbs are these wise observations about human sadness.
The heart knows its own bitterness, and no stranger shares its joy. (14:10)
Even in laughter the heart may ache, and the end of joy may be grief. (14:13)
Solomon (and possibly Smokey Robinson) understood the deep parts of our hearts which few rarely see.
UPDATE: Apparently the Smokey Robinson link doesn’t work. Puzzles me. Perhaps this works?

I usually reply to your longer posts, the ones with more commentary. But I loved this one. Thanks!
It’s the kind of post you would expect from a blog called “SOMBER and Dull”. 🙂
Good to hear from you again, by the way!
