God’s Boxes

I have in my hands two boxes which God gave me to hold.

He said, ‘Put all your sorrows in the black box and all your joys in the gold.’

 

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,

Both my joys and sorrows I stored,

But though the gold became heavier each day,

The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black,

I wanted to find out why,

And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole,

Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to God, and mused,

‘I wonder where my sorrows could be!’

He smiled a gentle smile and said,

‘My child, they’re all here with me..’

I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,

Why the gold and the black with the hole?

‘My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings & the black is for you to let go.’

We should consider all of our friends a blessing.

Send this to a friend today just to let them know you are thinking of them and that they are a joy in your life.

A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end.

It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends.

But the treasure inside for you to see,

Is the treasure of friendship you’ve granted to me.

Today I pass the friendship ball to you.

Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you…
