#EchoesOfInspiration: GOD IS A TAXI DRIVER

Last night I met God. He was just getting off the phone with someone.
"in an hour's time" He said roughly, yet calmly, then he ended the call. I bet it was a prayer he was answering. (Thinking about it, that one hour he said, could mean one year oo)

When I saw him. I just knew he was the one I'd go with. He laughed a lot and for some reasons, I was drawn to him.

Laying on the theatre bed was a man waiting to live a life he's always dreamt of.
He'd been born with a rare condition where he had two of the big toes. All his life, he's been rejected and neglected due to his condition and he's never been able to wear shoes.
