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 become 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.
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.

A ball is a circle, no beginning and 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.
