Having Lunch with God
This was sent to me by my friend Lisa L.

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.
