Fishing Fun

This weekend is "Free Fishing Weekend" in Oregon.  It allows the public to fish, clam, or crab anywhere in Oregon without a fishing license or tag.  Today we took the kids to Henry Hagg Lake to fish.  It was raining all day but we had a great time.  We are true Oregonians :) .  There’s a saying, "A woman who has never seen her husband fishing doesn’t know what a patient man she married!"  Well, now I can say, "A mom who has never seen her kids fishing doesn’t know what patient kids she raised!" :)  They were so thrilled when fish bit and tugged and they got to reel in real wiggling fish.  This is the first fish my 8 year-old son caught but we let it go because it’s too small.  Isn’t it so cute?

Later he got a beautiful rainbow trout…

Then my 13 year-old daugther got one.

Well, the Lord wanted to bless all three kids so He helped my 5 year-old son catch one, too.

We all enjoyed eating delicious fresh fish dish for dinner.  The wonderful aroma still lingers in the air :)

"’Come, follow Me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will make you fishers of men.’" Matthew 4:19  Don’t feel discouraged if you haven’t caught anything (anyone).  It takes "patience."  Keep praying for the unreached & unsaved and reaching out sharing the Gospel with love (…love is patient…)!  Oh..the thrill of leading someone into God’s kingdom is worth all the work and waiting!
