Lunch With God


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 and a six-pack of 
Root beer and he started his journey. 

When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old man. He was sitting 
in the park just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to him 
and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root 
beer when he noticed that the old man looked hungry, so he offered
him a Twinkie. 

He gratefully accepted it and smiled at him. His smile was so pleasant 
that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered him a root beer. 
Again, he 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 man, and gave him a hug. He 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." And before his mother could respond,
he added, "You know what? He's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"

Meanwhile, the old 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." And, before his son 
responded, he 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, an 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!
