Title:
Prayer boxes
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
The Prayer Boxes are artwork not storage containers. The Prayer Boxes are a set of two identical containers symbolizing storage for the owners use. The Prayer Boxes are artwork for perceived use of the owner and do not claim to hold any specific capability of use of storage. When the Prayer Boxes are opened the black prayer box will have a hole in the bottom. The hole in the bottom will not account for the weight difference from the gold prayer box which has a solid bottom and the inside is colored gold.

Claims:

What I claim for my invention is:



1. Prayer Boxes consist of two identical containers a gold prayer box and a black prayer box.

2. Definition of the gold prayer box claim 1 is that it represents the perceived storage of blessings, wishes, dreams and successes.

3. Definition of the black prayer box claim 1 is that it represents the perceived storage of sins, worries, troubles or guilt.

4. Gold prayer box claim 1 represents the definition claim 2 not the color gold.

5. The gold prayer box claim 1 solid bottom and weighing more than the black prayer box represents the hold and build up of claim 2.

6. The intent of the gold prayer box claim 1 and claim 2 is to disguise the added weight in a two layer bottom or two layered side wall.

7. Black prayer box claim 1 represents the definition claim 3 not the color black.

8. The black prayer box claim 1 hole in the bottom and weighing less than the gold prayer box claim represents the release of claim 3.

9. Prayer Boxes claim 1 are identical in shape, size, design or material composition.

10. Prayer Boxes claim 1 can be made from any natural or man made materials.

11. Gold prayer box claim 1, the inside will be the color gold.

12. Black prayer box claim, the inside will be the color black.

13. My Prayer Boxes claim 1 will seem identical in every aspect. The design will be the same, the color on the outside can be the same and the material they are made of will be the same. When the black container is opened the hole in the bottom will not account for the weight difference compared to the gold container. The weight is hidden from obvious detection.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] Prayer Boxes are a symbolic artwork which represents a meaning to the owner. Prayer Boxes are a set of two containers related to the poem “God's Boxes” by author unknown.

[0002] I have in my hands two boxes

[0003] Which God gave me to hold

[0004] He said, “Put all your sorrows in the black box,

[0005] And all your joys in the gold.”

[0006] I heeded His words, and in the two boxes

[0007] Both my joys and sorrows I stored,

[0008] But though the gold became heavier each day

[0009] The black was as light as before.

[0010] With curiosity, I opened the black,

[0011] I wanted to find out why,

[0012] And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole

[0013] Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

[0014] I showed the hole to God, and mused,

[0015] “I wonder where my sorrows could be.”

[0016] He smiled a gentle smile and said,

[0017] “My child, they

[0018] re all here with me.”

[0019] I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,

[0020] Why the gold, and the black with the hole?

[0021] “MY child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,

[0022] The black is for you to let go.”

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0023] The Prayer Boxes are a set of identical containers and the words of gold and black are used to identify the meaning for the boxes not the color.

[0024] The black prayer box will have a lid that is removable so you can see the hole in the bottom of the container. The bottom of the black prayer box will have a obvious hole in it

[0025] The black prayer will weigh less than the gold prayer box.

[0026] The gold prayer box will have a lid that is removable so you can see the solid bottom. The gold prayer box will weigh more than the black prayer box.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWINGS

[0027] The Prayer Boxes are shown in a identical square set for ease of drawing they can be any size or geometric shape.

[0028] FIG. 1 Both Prayer Boxes.

[0029] FIG. 2 Black Prayer Box.

[0030] FIG. 3 Black Prayer Box bottom view.

[0031] FIG. 4 Gold Prayer Box with double bottom.

[0032] FIG. 5 Gold Prayer Box with double bottom cut view.

[0033] FIG. 6 Gold Prayer Box with weight in side walls.

[0034] FIG. 7 Gold Prayer Box with weight in side walls cut view.
