I Saw God Rob The Poor Box

I saw God rob the poor box take a beggar out to eat two burgers and a coffee a loaves and fishes feast. I saw God in the alley drape his coat around a bum watched him walking slowly on dark streets of lonely numb saw Him in the playground share his crackers with a friend. I saw God on the battlefield console an orphaned child saw Him wipe her tears away replace them with His own. I saw Him on the subway rise and let the tired sit. Saw Him in the canned goods aisle reach items on high shelves saw the gratitude in those who can’t do it for themselves. I asked God what was going on said “Hey, God, whassup!” He smiled and said: “ just watching my Angels growing up.” John G. Lawless 4/14/2016

Superb writing, John. This is what my God does every day. This is the liberal God who spends time helping, not judging and condemning. Just my thoughts.

Yeah, Milton, I believe that too many spend too much time "looking for god in all the wrong places"....
