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 elderly man. The man was sitting in the park just
feeding some pigeons.
The boy sat down next to him and opened
his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer
when he noticed that the man looked hungry, so he offered him
The man gratefully accepted it and smiled
at boy. His smile was so pleasant that the boy wanted to see
it again, so he offered him a root beer.
Again, the man 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 man,
and gave him a hug. The man gave him his 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

look of peace on his face and he asked," Dad, what did
you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied, "I ate Twinkies in the
park with God." However, before his son responded, he
added," You know, he's much younger than I expected."

the potential to turn a life around. People come into our
lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Embrace all
