THIS AWARD WAS GIVEN TO ME BY "GREATFUL LIVIN"
I AM SUPPOSE TO PASS IT TO TEN BLOGGER WHO MAKE DAY AND ARE IN MY CIRCLE OF FRIENDS.
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 box;
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.<><><>

Lady Di,

I love the award. Thank you so much. You are definitely in my Circle of Friends.

Thanks for an awesome post. I have read the poem about the boxes before. It is so very true. God wants us to let go of troubles and sorrows and hoard our blessings.

You are a great inspiration to me and I value our friendship.
Blessings,
Mary
