Potato Chips

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! Embrace all equally!

Have lunch with God.......bring chips.

Send this to people who have touched your life in a special way. Let them
know how important they are. I did!!!!

God still sits on the throne. You may be going through a tough time right
now but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep
the faith!

My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, and I
picked you.

Please pass this to at least four people you want to be blessed. This prayer
is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no
cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.

Here is the prayer:

Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and e-mail buddies reading
this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy
Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where
there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt,
release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Bless their homes,
families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name,
Amen.

I know I picked more than four, so can you!
