I had a date with God today….

I heard Him in the voice

of the stressed out bus driver

who works two jobs

to educate his children

when he talked about working in the garden.

I felt Him in the hugs of the street people, the addicts, the alcholics and the elderly

when they collected their FREE HUGS  from me today….and I did not even have my FREE HUG t-shirt on.

I saw Him in the eyes of the transgender person when I gave love and acceptance in my smile.

I saw His love in action when the neighbour came to call.

I heard His voice in the HU song with my friend on skype.

I watched Him in the fidgeting movements as the child read her story.

I received a hug from God at the end of my day

when my friend shared deeply about the events of her healing.

Yes today I had a date with God.

He took many shapes and sizes.

He was hiding behind the eyes of all His children.

He was there with each and every one I did meet.

He is sitting with me at the end of the day

With love, acceptance and some surprises. 

When I washed my face and brushed my teeth

He was looking back at me in  and through my own eyes.

(Wow, this day was the best date with God I have ever had.)
