Observing the natural world's cycles, we see the ebb and flow of tides, the changing of seasons, and the cycle of day and night. There is a strong connection in my mind of moving from darkness into light, from sadness to healing, from sin into redeemed life.
"Day and night shows us the resurrection; night falls, day comes; day ends, night comes.". Clement of Rome
