Minnesota

I left our house this morning at 3:30 am and I am now sitting in a house at a resort on Osakis Lake, Minnesota and it is 11:00 pm. Tomorrow will be fishing all day and hopefully We will catch lots and lots of fish. We will be fishing for walleye, northern pike, cat fish, bass, crappie, and Muskie. My plan is to catch and release everything I catch tomorrow, and my goal is to catch 100 fish. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it!?!? Yep, it is, but if I fish for 12 hours that is 8 fish an hour or a fish every 7.5 minutes. I can do that if I don’t goof off with to much eating, drinking coffee, talking with other fishermen. I walked out on one of the docks that had a light and a bench on it for night fishing and the bugs around the light were a huge, thick, buzzing cloud. It was hard to breath without sucking in a bunch of bugs. That is to bad, I thought I could increase the odds of getting 100 fish if I could get in 16 or 18 hours of fishing. When Jesus called His disciples He promised them that He would make them a fisher of men. On two different occasions Jesus told the disciples where to cast their nets as they fished in the Sea of Galilee and the result was a huge catch of fish. Jesus was illustrating that if we do what He says as He teaches us the skill of fishing for people, and work hard he will provide opportunities, open doors, and responsive people. To be a follower of Jesus is to be a fisher of people.

    Hey Dee, goals should be left home along with worries when you go on vacation. I have a goal for you, go one day without even thinking about goals! Just a thought. Hope you have a great time and don’t fall in the lake!
