Merry Christmas everyone!

Ice fishing cp eml
To all you readers and fellow bloggers, Merry Christmas from the frozen lakes areas of northern United States. The sun is a bit inconspicuous through the cab and the trees as it sets over the small lake I was fishing.  A safe 7″ of ice with the fold up shelter allowed me to see 9 fish and catch 3.

When I read your blogs from South Africa, UK, South America and so many warmer countries, I often wonder what I am missing that excites you. I only know what you are missing if you have never driven or walked on a frozen lake or peered down a hole in the ice as a monster fish suddenly appears to bite your hook (Or decide not to).

I dropped a camera down the hole to show you just what it looks like down there. I was catching some blue gill that day.  Check out this utube video 

Have a Merry Christmas fellow readers and bloggers. may you keep connected. May you also become more connected to the God who created all that we know and love.

For me, Christmas is a time where I reflect on how our creator exchanged His eternal Glory for a different kind of glory never seen before. A glory He wants to pass on to us through God in a finite human body as a baby. Inconspicuously inserting himself into his own creation to make a way to restore our relationship to Him.  “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. ” Luke 2:14. take some time to mull over what the angels proclaimed to some obscure shepherds who would worship God in the form of a baby born in a barn. Glory to God both in heaven and now on earth

May you make room for Jesus in your everyday life this next year.

  1. First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thanks!

    1. Good Question Kay. I have to have a theme in mind or I do not even sit down to Write. Sometimes A theme with a picture in mind as I my strength is photography. Most of us think visually anyway. I have to have something in me that wants to get out so I make time for it…otherwise I’d rather be fishing than writing. We are all somewhere on the big learning curve and hopefully getting better

  2. I guess I do that once in awhile on blogs where they do not post much. I don’t post much either. My goal has been to become a much better communicator (mostly for public speaking which I am doing less of as time passes) rather than just another writer. When I feel I have something good to say, I try to share it well.
