A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with a bag of potato chips and a six pack of root beer and started is 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 sip of his root beer when he noticed the old man looked hungry, so he offered him some potato chips. He gratefully accepted it and smiled at him.
His smile was so pretty 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 eating and smiling, but they never said a word.
As twilight approached, 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 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 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 asked, "Dad, what did you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied, I ate potato chips in the park with God." However, 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 change a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime! Embrace all equally!
Have lunch with God... and bring the potato chips!!!
Send this to the people who have touched your life in a special way. Let them know how important they are!
God sill sits on the throne. You may be going through a touch time right now but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only he can.
Keep the faith!
This story has defiantly made me look differently at my life and the people who have come into my life and blessed me beyond what I deserved. This story is so beautiful and it is just a reminder of how much we need to appreciate who comes in our lives and bless them more than we ever have before... Share the word of God and make sure to thank those who have been a major or even minor blessing in your life... God sure does amazing things so give back to him and his children!
Have a blessed day !
