    :hello:Potato wafers :hello:

    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 wafers and a pack of water bottle and commenced his journey.

    When he had reached a park, he met an old man. He was sitting in the park, staring at some distant doves.

    The boy hesitantly sat next to him and opened his suitcase. When He was about to take water from his Bottle, he noticed that the old man looked hungry, so he offered him some potato wafers.

    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 some more potato wafers and a bottle of water.

    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 ear to ear smile.

    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, his countenance turned resplendent- with joy, returned 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 wafer 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 withGod.

    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 people that I wanted God to
    bless, and I picked you.

    Please pass this to people you want to be blessed. This 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 that I heard from a father in church:
    God, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and
    buddies right now.

    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."

    I know I picked you so you can send this to others as well.
