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 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 some chips She 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. Again, she smiled at him. The boy was delighted!
They sat there all afternoon 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 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 potato
chips in the park with God." However, 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, 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!
Have lunch with God.......bring chips. Send this to people who have
touched your life in a special way. Let them know how important they are. I
God still sits on the throne. You may be going through a tough time right
now but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can.
Keep the faith. 


Prayer for you:   

Father, I ask You to bless my friends and relatives reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power.
Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is
self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Bless their homes,
families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name,

@ Ace, I am glad that it made you smile.  We all have our own beliefs and they are ours and no one else's.  I do not share alot with alot of people.  I think it comes down to the fact that I learned several years back that my life is very personal so I keep alot of things to myself.  We are all unique individuals and our beliefs are our own.  I have a plaque on the wall that says "Oh Lord fill my mouth with worth while stuff and nudge me when I have said enough".  I think if I ever truly opened up to someone they would be startled at some of the things I believe.  You are you and I accept you for who you are and not for want your beliefs are.

Even an atheist like I can appreciate this story. Thank you for the smile you gave me tonight reading this. We are each other's connection to the god (love) within us. Namasta - the god In me honors the god in you. Peace

I thought it was worth passing on to all here.  It really said a lot to me and I cried when I read it.
