Meeting GOD…………..

MEETING GOD

There once was a little boy who wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long
trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with Twinkies and a
six-pack of root beer, and he started his journey. When he had gone about
three blocks, he met an old woman. She was sitting in the park just staring
at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his suitcase. He
was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old
lady looked hungry so he offered her a Twinkie.

He gratefully accepted it and smiled at him. Her smile was so pretty that
the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered her a root beer. Once again,
she 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; he turned around, ran back to the old woman, and gave
her a hug. She gave him her 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? She’s got the
most beautiful smile I’ve ever seen!”

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her
son was stunned by the look of peace on her face and he asked, “Mother, what
did you do today that made you so happy?” She replied, “I ate Twinkies in
the park with God.” But before her son responded, she added, “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, and honest compliment, or the 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!
