"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven."

Ecclesiastes 3:1

God is so good that he gave me two favorite seasons at one time this week, Lenten season and spring break.

I bet that there are a lot of people who don't know that God made spring break to come right about now, so teachers and students could take a break right before they break.

It is rather hard to do them both at the same time, but I think that I have figured out a way to prepare my soul and do my fishing all together, and not neglect one for the other.

I will thank my God for everything I see and touch for one period of time. It would go like this: Thank you, Lord, for the little, lonely beachfront that is covered with tiny shells and green, smelly seaweed that is left uninhabited because I am the only one who can see any beauty in it and for the brine smelling, off-colored sea water that hides the fish there waiting for me.

God, I really appreciate this tackle box Daddy left me when he went to be with you. It seems to replenish itself. I just used the last treble hook, and I don't even know where there is a treble hook store in town. God, it was good of you to help to put the 15-pound test line on the Ambassadeur 6000 reel Daddy gave me the Christmas that he died. I believe now that he can still see me use it.

I will go on like this all day while I fish this Lenten, spring break time.

Dear Lord, I saved the best things you gave me for last. Thank you for the live shrimp I just put on my hook and for your Son. They both died for me to enrich my life now and for eternity to come.
