This New Year, Let’s Find God Within Us All…

imageFifteen long years ago, around the same year-end time, I had read this heart-touching story. I was deeply moved; and as a habit, noted it down in my diary. As a young lad, this story left a deep impression upon me at the time and since then, I start my each new year reminiscing it.

This year, as all of us get ready to usher the new year in, I am sharing this piece with you: 

One cold evening during the holiday season, a little boy about six or seven was standing out in front of a store window. The little child had no shoes and his clothes were mere rags. A young woman passing by saw the little boy and could read the longing in his pale blue eyes. She took the child by the hand and led him into the store. There she bought him some new shoes and a complete suit of warm clothing.

They came back outside into the street and the woman said to the child, “Now, you can go and have a very happy holiday.”

The little boy looked up at her and asked, “Are you God, Ma’am?”

She smiled at him and replied, “No, son. I am just one of His children.”

The little boy then said, “I knew you had to be some relation.”

Touching, isn’t it? This story helped me stay more human year on year, welcoming the new year on a nicer note… I wish you all a very happy new year 2017; hope that you find your reasons and means to show you are the chosen one by the Lord Almighty to play His children, same way as the young lady in the story.

God bless you all…
