Potato Chips

The following is one of those emails that you get forwarded from a friend then you are supposed to pass it on. I usually read them, enjoy them, and then delete them. However, this one went so well with our Bible study that I passed it on to my kids, and now I am sharing it with my blog.

Potato ChipsA 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 woman. She was sitting in the park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old lady looked hungry, so he offered her some chips. She gratefully accepted it and smiled at him.Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered her a root beer. Again, she 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 woman, and gave her a hug. She gave him her 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? She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen! "Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home.Her son was stunned by the look of peace on her face and he asked,"Mother, what did you do today that made you so happy?" She replied!"I ate potato chips in the park with God." Before her son could respond, she 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.

Thanks for touching my life!

I am in Tech Heaven

This is day three of my five days in Austin at the TCEA (tech) convention. I am just like a sponge. I cannot get enough information. It is wonderful with only one exception, it is getting harder to remember everything I am seeing and hearing. I find myself taking more notes than ever, because I am so afraid that I will not remember the good stuff when I get back home.
