Such is this tale of a black and gold box…
“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 one.”
I heeded His words, and in the two boxes, both my joys and sorrows I stored. But though the gold box became heavier each day, the black box was as light as before. With curiosity, I opened the black. I wanted to find out why. And I saw at the base of the box a hole, which my sorrows had fallen out. 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 are 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 blessing. The black is for you to let go.”
Letting Go and letting God is a comforting mantra.
