A little girl wanted to meet God.
She knew it was a long trip,
So she packed her suitcase with Twinkies and a six -pack of root beer and started her journey.
When she had gone about three blocks, she met an old woman.
She was sitting in the park just staring at some pigeons.
The girl sat down next to her and opened her suitcase.
She was about to take a drink when she saw that the old lady looked hungry.
She offered her a Twinkie .
Twinkie brought a twinkling smile on her face.Her smile was so pretty that
The girl wanted to see it again and offered a root beer
The old woman flashed a smile which delighted the dear little girl.
They sat down eating and smiling the whole afternoon,but never spoke a word
As darkness descended the girl got up to go home
Turned around, ran to the old woman and gave her a big hug.
She gave the girl her biggest smile ever.
At home the girl’s mother was puzzled by the look of joy on her face
She asked,” What did you do today which has made you so happy?”
The girl replied, “I had Lunch with God”
Before the mother could respond ,the girl added
“You know what? She has got the most beautiful smile I have ever seen”
Meanwhile, the old woman radiant with joy returned home .
Stunned at the look of peace on her face , her son asked, ” Mother ,What did you do today that has made you so happy?”
She replied, ” I ate Twinkies in the park With God”…”You know, God 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.
**We don’t know what God will look like. People come into our lives for a
reason, a season, or a lifetime. Embrace all equally!
