Lessons from a Pencil Box

I love parables.  
The story or analogy can illustrate lessons of life
in simple meaningful ways.
Forest Gump's mom told him, " Life is like a box of chocolate."
" You never know what you're gonna get."
 Life can be full of surprises.

Recently I was this on Heidi Kaisand's blog
And she shared this.

Lessons we can learn from a pencil box.

1. Everything you do will leave a mark.
2. You have the ability to correct any mistake you make.
3. You will experience painful sharpenings in life,
but it's required if you want to be a better pencil.
4. To be the best pencil, you must be guided by the hand that holds you.
5. It's what's inside you that's important.

Life isn't always going to be easy, but if you allow yourself to be held in the
hands of God you can do great things.
Each of us is a special person with talents and abilities.
We can make a difference to those around us.

We all need to be sharpened on occasion.
You can't do sharp work without a sharp pencil so
Be the sharp one in the bunch.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Until Next Time-
