Lunch With God

March 16 2009 , Written by Balavardhan Reddy Published on #Life

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 !
Keep Smiling
