The young lady giggles as she swings her boy friends hand back and forth as they leave the sandy beach walking side by side. They stop at a window in the side of a building and buy a slice of pizza each. Finding a bench under a tall Palm tree the young man says a quick thank you to the Lord for their food and they take big bites out of their pizza.
Sitting in the shade they chat about the worlds problems and finish eating their pizza. “There isn’t much we can do about what’s going on in the world,” the girl says.
“Sure there is!” the boy replies.
“What? We’re only two people, how can we solve the worlds problems?”
“Well, we can’t solve the world’s problems but we can take a stand with others. You know the Lord said ‘where two or three are gathered in His name, He is present.”‘
The boy cuts her off. “If we got a bunch of kids together at school and started a prayer group I’ll bet we could make a difference.”
“But what would we pray about?” The girl wipes her face with a napkin.
“I don’t know. Maybe angels around our school. God has warring angels, I’ll bet they’d guard us!”
The girl laughs and stands. “The school won’t let us do that, silly!”
“But don’t you see? That’s where we can make a difference!” The boy states enthusiastically.
She looks at him for a long moment, and begins walking toward the beach.
“Well, what do you think?” He asks and quickly walks up beside her.
“Whatever,” she states and keeps walking.
“God said we have guardian angels and I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be asking around and see if we can get enough kids to join in.”
Reaching the water, the girl laughs, shoves her boyfriend playfully and darts out into the water “You do that,” she yells, and dives into a wave.
