A little boy wanted to meet GOD. He knew it was a long trip to where GOD
lived, so he packed his suitcase with Twinkies and a six pack of root beer,
and he 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 a Twinkie. 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 smiling, but they never said a word. As it grew dark, 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 Twinkies 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!
