It has been over week since I last posted. Sorry about that. I went with my two sons, and son-in-law fishing last Friday through Sunday. Then doctor’s appointments, and a trip to the coast wiped out the other two days I should have posted.
Speaking of the fishing trip……..
We went to Diamond Lake, Oregon. It is absolutely my favorite place to go fishing. Beautiful mountains on both sides of the lake, and great fishing. We caught 28 trout in two hours the last time we had been there.
Well, we got to the lake on Friday night. The lake was quiet and beautiful. We ate dinner and did a lot of laughing to telling stories of yester years.
Then it cam Saturday. We rented a very comfortable looking pontoon boat that was big enough for several people.
However, as we went to get the boat it started raining. I mean real hard rain. We decided to go out on the lake anyway and try to fish.
That lasted 45 minutes only. Only one bite, and soaked down to our under ware.
We went back to our cabin and that was it for the whole weekend. It rained hard all the rest of the day Saturday. It did let up towards evening, but then the wind came and turned the lake into solid whitecaps.
So our whole weekend of fishing was for 45 minutes of drenching rain.
Has that happened to you? Have you had plans for something and then have it disrupted with something that caused you to have to cancel it?
You certainly aren’t alone. The storms come into our life often, like it did on our fishing trip.
We need to face the storms and make something good happen from them. In our case at the lake we had a wonderful time in the cabin watching football, eating great food, and joking a lot. It turned out to be a blessing for me to be with my two sons, and son-in-law. We were much closer by the end of the week.
This is what you need to do as well. Make storms into special times, by adjusting to it. Let God provide you with a wonderful substitute like it did for my family.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
