The Empty Box


My object lesson: The Empty Box

You can spend all your time looking pretty on the outside,

all the while being empty on the inside.

Be the best person you can be inside and out.

A pretty little box I created for all the ladies at our luncheon.

Instead of including treats in the box, I left the box empty.

I watched their surprise when they opened the box expecting a treat, only

to only find it empty.
