Sunday snicker

This one a friend shared but it isn’t funny. It does
tell a tale though.
———————————

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
man. He was sitting in the park, just staring at
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 old man
looked hungry, so he offered him some chips. He
gratefully accepted It and smiled at him.

His smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it
again, so he offered him a root beer. Again, he
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
man, and gave him a hug. He 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 today
that made you so happy?”

He replied, “I had lunch with God.” But before his
mother could respond, he added, “You know what? He’s
got the most beautiful smile I’ve ever seen!”

Meanwhile, the old man, also radiant with joy, returned
to his home. His son was Stunned by the look of peace
on his face and he asked, “dad, what did you do today
that made you so happy?”

He replied “I ate potato chips in the park with God.”
However, before his son responded, he 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!
