I have in my hands two boxes which God gave me to hold. He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black, and all your joys in the gold."

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes both my joys and sorrows I store,
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 aloud, "I wonder where my sorrows could be."

He smiled a gentle smile at me. "My child, they're all here with me." I asked, "God, why give 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."

Nail The Fence

Created on 27 January 2011
There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in the back fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Then it gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all.

He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.

You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there.

A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. Show your friends how much you care, send them this story.
