A little boy
wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to
where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with Twinkies
six-pack of Root Beer and he started his journey.
The man gratefully accepted it and
smiled at boy.
His smile was so pleasant that the boy wanted to
see it again, so he offered him a root beer.
Again, the man smiled
at him. The boy was delighted!
They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling,
but they never said a word.
As it grew dark, the boy realized how
tired he was and he
got up to leave, but before he had gone more than a few steps,
around, ran back to the man, and gave him a hug.
The man gave him his biggest smile ever.
When the boy opened the door to his own
house a short time
later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face.
She asked him, "What
did you do today that made you so happy?
"He replied, "I had lunch with God."
But before his mother could respond, he added,
"You know what?
God's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"
Meanwhile, the elderly man, also radiant with joy, returned to his home.
His son was stunned by
the look of peace on his face and he asked,"
Dad, what did you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied, "I ate Twinkies in the park with God."
However, before his son responded,
You know, he's much younger than I expected."
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile,
a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment,
smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
People come into our
lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
Embrace all equally!
I hope you will share this site
with those who have touched your life in a special way.
Let them know how important they are.
Have lunch with God!
And... thank you for touching my life.
