Fell in the Ocean

That title sounds way worse than it was, in some respects. I decided to do some surf fishing while we were here in Cannon Beach for the “Pastor’s Prayer Summit”. I didn’t skip any prayer sessions, I got up early this morning and fished before breakfast, and then we had a break this afternoon and I went fishing again. The method we use surf fishing is to follow the surf out, and right before the waves start back in cast it as far as possible, and then walk really fast back with the bail on your real open, before a big wave knocks you down. Well on one of the casts I didn’t walk fast enough and a big wave knocked me down. I didn’t get very much water down my waders but I did get a bunch in my jacket pockets where my cell phone was. It doesn’t work now. It is supposed to be water proof but I dropped it and cracked the glass a week after I got it, so I suppose that is where the water got in. I am so disgusted with myself, this is the fifth phone that I have messed up falling in the water while fishing. I fully intend to put the phone in a safe, dry place when I get in the water where there is a potential for a fall in the water, but I get so engrossed in fishing I forget. Oooooooh, I wonder how much money this is going to cost me. I just got this phone about 6 months ago as an upgrade. I am trying to think of some spiritual application that I can make with this story, but the only one that I can think of is, ” don’t be stupid”! Oh well, I am going to bed, and I am hoping that when I get up in the morning it is working.
