I Saw God Today

I saw God today. He wore two left shoes and a holy raincoat; that is to say, it was full of holes. God stood on the corner with a blank stare, supporting a cardboard plea; it read, “Obama’s not the only one that wants change.”

Last night my 4-year-old son looked up from his coloring book and asked, “Why did God want us?” Dumbfounded, I said I didn’t know. He paused. “I think everyone needs a friend,” he said, and turned back to his crayons.

I saw God today. He sang “Amazing Grace” on the street corner and smiled back.
