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 a Twinkie.

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 today that made you so happy?

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

Meanwhile, the elderly 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 Twinkies 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. Embrace all equally!

  1. I really love this article. Thank you Cherokee Billie. Both child, and the older man must have beatiful souls full of love. The love is God, goodness, and sharing is also God. Positive vibes from heaven. Maybe these 2 souls knew eachother from a past life. I wish the whole world could be this way. Instead of greed give from the heart without expecting anything in return (share). Anyways, thank you for sharing this with us about a child and man who shared a special bond.

    • Dear Lisa:
      you are right base to both had loving souls. Most people that we know in our lives we have had encounters with in other lives. If the world could just walk in love and peace It would be heaven on earth !
      many blessings,
      Cherokee Billie

  2. Thats really lovely. I believe “God” is in all of us.

  3. This is such a beautiful story, Cherokee Billie. We just never know who we are going to encounter each day. This is good food for thought.
    Happy New Year to everyone!

  4. Dear Cherokee:
    When I read this story I immediately came to mind the words of Mother Teresa when she said she saw Jesus in the face of the poor, small.
    This story makes me think about the love of God is an illusion if we look to others. We can not say we love God unless we love our brothers. We can not say we love God unless we love our brothers.
    Only true love can reach God if you truly love others.
    And this child has found God through this man. We serve God through whom this close to us.
    Jesus teaches us how to love:
    I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and came to see me. “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and went to see? “And the King will say, ‘I tell you, whatever you did for the least of my brethren, you did for me’ (Mt 25, 31-46).

    I send my love.

  5. Wonderful story!! I think we should learn from our children ,the simple nature in her minds shows us the door to god`s greatness.Happy New Year to all of you!!! love Karina
