Lunch With 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

cupcakes,several cans of root beer and started on his journey.When he had gone about three blocks, he saw an elderly woman. She

was sitting on a park bench

watching the 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 the lady

looked

hungry so he offered her a cupcake. She gratefully accepted and smiled

at him. Her smile was so wonderful that he

wanted to see it again, so he offered a

root beer as well. Once again she smiled at him. The boy was delighted!

They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling without saying a word.

As it began to grow dark, the boy realized how tired he was and wanted

to go home. He got up to leave but before he had gone no more than a

few steps, he turned around and ran back to the old woman, giving her a

big hug. She gave him her biggest smile ever.

When the boy arrived home his Mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked, “What

has made you so happy today?” He

replied, “I had lunch with God.”Before his mother could respond he added, “You know what? She’s got

the most beautiful smile in the

whole world!”

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her son was stunned by the

look of peace on her face. He asked,”Mother, what has made you so

happy today?” She replied, “I ate cupcakes in the park with God.” And

before her son could reply, she added, “You know, he is 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. Take no one for granted and

embrace all equally with joy!!
