Topic: Summer (the season) (07/09/09)

TITLE: Thie Day At The Beach Was The Beginning Of My Summer Season.
By Christine Ramey


Beth can almost smell the ocean scent as we drove closer and closer to the beach that day. Beth and her friends were all exceited to go.They watched as the surfers swam over the waves one at time. There were some that were pros at that and others not so much.

They loved to do this every year. They enjoyed the fellowship of being around each other. The love of pounded the volleyball across the net. Cheering each other on to victory. These were moments of their lives. The could hardly stand it.

Once they arrived, they got out their gear and headed for the beach. Beth and Brittney headed close to the water line. They loved the feel of the water as it brushed up against their danty toes.

This helped to brush off the heat they both felt. Although those things were great, they did not get the true pleasure of the beach.

The things they loved to do best was to witness to the people who passed them by. It didn't matter who it was cause they both knew they had God on their side.

That made the summer complete for them. That wanted more than anything to share the love of Christ that they both knew.

Beth and Brittney both walked all over that beach, to hand out a track or too sharing God's love to those they came upon.

They did this the entire summer going to the beach and sharing God's love. It often makes me wonder why we don't do this. Have we grown so cold to God's word that we can not share his love.

Beth and Brittney can be your role models this summer as you go to enjoy your day. This has been a great expierence for them both.

The Bible teaches us to "go and teach all the nations..." Teach them to love God.

It is amazing when we become the one to share his word. To see people open there minds and hearts over to our loving Savior.

I know when I excepted Him as my Savior I was touched because someone took the time to share with others. What happens when we don't share God's love? Was that their last chance to experience God's love? Will there be another chance ever?

Those are some questions we must ask ourselves. Why shouldn't we share God's love. Would it be fair to walk away from someone who may desperately need a Savior in their life?

So, in closing, this story reminds us to never walk away from we know that we had a chance to share God's love.

Do what Beth and Brittney did for their summer. Go tell others of God wonderful love that they to may know Him in a real and personal way. Share His love everyway where you go. Anytime of the year.

Because it could be the best season yet! Rather it is winter, fall, spring, and yes summer. Smile and share God's love today!

Your story had a good message, but if I was asked to tell someone what it was about, I would tell them - witnessing to people. While I do believe that is the most important thing any of us Christians can do, I felt the topic of "summer" was missed. It is extremely important to proof and re-proof a story before submitting, as well. Other than I think your story missed the topic, I think it had a wonderful message. I tell you all these things because I would want to be told if it was my story. Thank you for sharing.

thank you I enjoyed this and I enjoyed the description of the two youngsters having fun and telling others about Jesus.It was spoilt slightly by the number of spelling errors.But this can be fixed either by proof reading carefully yourself or getting someone eagle eyed to help you. Content is the main thing and your ideas are good. I look forward to more of your work .
