Saturday Morning Coffee

This is my view this morning as I have my coffee and do some recreational reading.

In case you didn’t notice, it’s still winter outside…

And also if you didn’t notice, my reading has nothing to do with winter…

I’m not complaining, but I am ready for spring, not the one that already happened on the calendar, but the one where I can get outside on grass and water not snow and ice.

I’m not what you would call an avid fisherman.  But when I was younger I had a nice boat and did get out on the lakes with some frequency.  But now the boat is gone and I’ve got out of that routine.  After I retired from the PD I went right into the pursuit of my clergy career and the fishing part of my life continued to stay dormant.  But last year I decided I needed to practice what I preach and work towards that “good mix” of Work, Play and Rest.  So I set up my canoe for some on the water fishing (as opposed to off the dock fishing) and did a pretty good job of working my way back into a casual fishing fishing routine.

It even took me out of state to Lake Hartwell in South Caroline (where my daughter now lives and teaches) and where I caught my first ever Kentucky Spotted Bass! (Now I kinda know my MN fish, but I am open to a second opinion on the above fish.  I’m taking the word of a local guy who told me what it was.  But you know fisherman and their fish stories!)

Since I like to tell stories about about spiritual health, and I’ve always known that being outside on the water is good for my soul, I’ve added a new blog category – Fishin’ 

Well, that’s all for now, gotta get back to my reading…

Take Care, Dan
