The Painting:  So soft and peaceful!

The Thought:  Fishing.  That is my thought for the morning. 

Yesterday Morgan and Kelly arrived with our new TOTO toilet. 
I fixed a big lunch of baked chicken, sweet potatoes, corn and homemade cheese and garlic biscuits. OH yes and an OMA salad with everything from a to z in it covered with a delicate raspberry glaze.  

It was while we were eating Morgan decided we needed fishing poles so off to the store we went and bought three poles.  Two zebco and one brand I did not know.   After a three hour period of fishing and two rain showers thrown in there during the time period... the score was  Leah three perch, Terry two perch, Morgan, three tree limbs and numerous pulls of alligator weed, and me, well I had two weeds pulls and one line stuck in the tree.  Leah fished later in the evening with Terry and she had more bites on her line than anyone.  We had fun though and Terry threw back the two fish he caught.  The pond is full of bass and perch. 

I guess we could compare life to fishing in a way. You truly never know what you will come up with on the hook despite your best laid plans. We all wait patiently watching that bobber in the water, waiting for the fish to grab the worm and pull it under... and most of the time nothing happens. But the adrenalin rush of actually catching a fish is unbelievable.

Patience is valuable in the life of a fisher person... use your patience this day and remember to live in the NOW moment.


"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”- 1 Corinthians 1:18

Love the 'Life is like Fishing' analogy and the family fishing story. Reminds me of begin a kid. Never liked fishing--too much waiting around, when I could have been reading a good book! But I have frequently made good life catches from hooks I never knew I baited.

Really enjoy your spirited use of color in all your work.
