Meeting God

There once was a little boy who 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. Once again she smiled at him. The boy was delighted ! They sat there all afternoon eating and 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.” But before her son responded, she added, “You know, he’s much younger than I expected.”

    God is all around us. It is we who have closed our eyes. If we love the creation of God this world will be a much better place to live

    @ Shammi – Yes true, We neglect others and get the same from them, if we give love, we will get love in return…lets create and share this chain of love to each other…Lets all feel the presence of God among ourselves 🙂

    Very true rajiv.We have god in our heart.But we are searching him in temples,mosques,chruch in outside world.We never try to find him with in us.When we say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.

    Pinky – Very true, I fully agree with you. When we offend another person we are surely slamming the door in the face of God. Very nice thought 🙂
