Our lives are like grapes, as they are separated and smashed to make the “mosto” and the wine, we become better and better as the hard times come to us. And for those who have a personal relationship with God through Jesus, these hardships can even inspire them to worship, like a composer sings “I pour out my heart, I pour out my soul, my greatest hallelujah”. This song inspired me, and it was originally played in my work, as well as another Jewish song of praise. My wine swirls and bursts, like two arms towards heaven, singing praises to my beloved God.
