  • OT, rev I think you will appreciate this one.

    And I think others will too. I don't know who the author is, but I feel secure that he or she would not mind this being shared.

    A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it would be a long trip to where God lived, so he packed a suitcase with Twinkies and a six pack of root beer and started on his journey.

    When he had gone about 3 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 of root beer when he noticed the old man looked hungry, so he offered him a Twinkie.

    The old man 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 the man smiled at him. The boy was delighted! They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling.

    As it grew dark, the boy realized how tired he was and got up to leave. But before he had gone but a few steps, he turned around and ran back to the old man and gave him a hug. The old man gave him the biggest smile ever.

    When the boy got home a short time later, his mother noticed 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." Before his mother could respond, the boy said, "You know what?"
    God's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"

    Meanwhile the old man, also radiant with joy, returned to his home. His grown 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 Twinkies in the park with God. Before his son could respond, the old man added, "You know, he's much younger than I expected."


    Whoever wrote this added the following:
    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!
    Some people will do nearly anything in order to be able to not do anything.
