Lunching With God

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.”
This was sent to me by a dear friend and I wanted to pass it along to all of you.  Miss Linda sends me all kinds of things.  This one filled my heart up so much tears of joy came out of me as I read it.  One can never tell just when and where God will show up.  Remember that the next time you see someone.  It might be the open window to see Him or even better to show Him.
