Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. and the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

The BIG fishing trip

 Drew was home for two weeks over the 4th of July.  What a wonderful time!  They were blessed by a trip fishing with our friend Dustin who does lots of salmon fishing.
 Drew started out getting used to a fishing pole after missing out on this for so many years with his running.
 Looking like he is needing to concentrate on how to do this again.
 David showing off the first catch of the day, just posting this for size comparison.  LOL
 Dustin and David with the big trout of the day--HA HA
 Now why would they need such a big net?
 Not yet, I am enjoying teasing......
 OK, now I would say we are getting there.  Hello salmon!
 Yep, stretch him out guys make him look as big as your stories!
 Sadly, he was a native fish and had to be released.
 Preparing him to swim FREE!
 NO--NO  Don't go!!!
 Good bye little fishy!
 Off to try again, look at that pole bend.
 And it is a WHOPPER!  Look at the size of that guy!  Makes David's little trout look even littler!
 I think he is ready to swim away too---and sadly he gets to because he is another native fish.
 And Drew with his muscle man pose with the big fellow!
 David getting in on the action too!
 David's turn to catch one!  And you really have to know David to know how overly excited he gets with this kind of thing.  I believe everyone enjoys watching him go crazy praising the Lord for the experience.
 Love this one of my guys!  They sure look a lot a like in this picture.
 And here is the big guy, not as big as the last but hefty.
 David looking pretty proud of himself!

 And yes, you guessed it, also a native so back he goes........
 And the final cool off jump for the day!
The guys had a wonderful time, though they did not bring any big ones home :(   We praised the Lord for the wonderful day and the awesome experience and the memories made.
