Twinkies and Root Beer

Twinkies and Root Beer

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!

And .......Thanks for touching my life!

New Listings and Ramblings...

Good Wednesday All,

Hope everyone is having a nice week so far. Been rather cool and rainy here in Virginia, but we need the rain so I won't complain to much.

My heart goes out to all who live in the Midwest having to deal with flooding and tornado's.

I am also saddened by what has happened down in the Gulf. Why does MAN KIND have to destroy things? You know back in primitive times, we did not need all this oil. We protected and worshipped the land we live on. Now it's all politics and who has the most of whatever. Enough is enough. Do we really need to keep destroying all that God has created for us to enjoy? :( A very sad time for all.

Well I have been working on lots of new things, but don't have pics of all of them. I do want to share some new listings I added to my Etsy Shoppe.

Americana anyone?

I love these two Americana Crow Items. Although they are Patriotic, they could be left out all year long. The make-do is cut from wood, primly painted and then I used fabric to dress the crow. Isn't he cute!!!

I also listed some old "1950's" Post Cards in my shoppe. I thought they were neat comic style cards.

I just love this one with the baby and puppy. Very sweet.

I have several other post cards listed in the shoppe, so go on over and check em out.

That all I have for now, Thank you for visiting.

Prim Blessings, and may God Bless US ALL.
