Stone Nativity Scene on Beach

I was doing a power walk with a friend when we spotted the stone nativity scene on the beach!  This is the third consecutive year the “rock guy” has graced our beach with his stone crèche.  The artist uses no mortar as he gingerly balances or nestles each stone in place.  He welcomes visitors to check out his FB page:  Juan Manuel Cisneros.

This year there was a decorated Christmas tree next to the crèche!  Since I was carrying a few Jesus tracts, I decided to contribute to the tree’s beauty by attaching a few with bobby pins!

A young woman approached as I was finishing, and began reading one of the tracts.  I said, “It’s Christmastime and it’s about Jesus.”

She smiled, “Yes.  I like what I’m reading here.  I actually came down to the beach to pray.  I’m going through a difficult season and need to make some decisions.”

We were pleased to learn that she knows Jesus and attends a Bible centered church.  She was grateful and teared up when we offered to pray with her, that God would give her wisdom, guidance, direction and strength as she makes these important decisions.

We continued our walk and discovered another rather neglected Christmas tree, growing by the beach parking lot.  It was only partially decorated.  Fortunately, we had a couple more bobby pins.

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
