I have in my hand 2 boxes, which God gave for 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 2 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,
where my sorrows had fallen by.
I showed the hole to God and mused?
"I wonder where my sorrows can be?"
He smiled a gentle smile and said.
"My child, they are all here with me!"
I asked God,
"why did you give me the boxes,
why the gold and the black with a hole?"
"My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
and the black.............is for you, to let go."

An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
