Have these fishermen had a good day? Are they happy to be heading home? I hope so. They certainly have enough beauty to make them praise the Lord. Let’s hope they can thank Him for their catch, whether large or small.

I can’t relate to this painting subject, being a devoted non-fisherman. As I explained to David a long time ago…..”If I put a line and bait in the water, there is an awful chance that I will actually catch a fish.” Nope, not for me. When fishing with our children on the 61st street pier on Galveston Island, years back, I spent the time unraveling their lines. When we got home David and the two boys cleaned the fish and Karen and I fried them. A neat arrangement and fun for all.

Speaking of Karen; when she was about 5 years old we went crabbing on Clear Lake and of course, she wanted a line of her own. Soon there was a tug on her line, and she slowly brought it to the surface. However, attached to the line and bait was a BIG bluish crab. After a look, she screamed, dropped the line and ran as far down the pier as possible, away for the crab..the one that got away. Everyone says she is just like me.

Although it is not what I want to do, I’m happy for all the fishermen who do. I just wonder what is the charm; scenery, silence, eating the fish later, or is it companionship? Hmmm! That is beginning to sound interesting.

“I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.

I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,

so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting

men may know there is none beside me.

I am the Lord and there is no other.”

Isaiah 45: 5 and 6
