Greet the new day.


I’m heading out early today to do some fishing on the lake. Before I go, I stop at the local General Store to pick up some fishing items for the day and of course my first cup of hot coffee before anything else. I have been coming to this General Store since I was a young boy accompanying my Grandfather and Father on our early morning fishing trips.


Besides the great cup of coffee, the advice I get from the store owner, Bill is invaluable. He knows exactly where the fish are at all times, and keeps up with the local weather reports as well. Many of the successful days our family has had out on the lake are due to Bill’s keen advice as to where the best fishing will take place. His “home spun” tales have been passed on through his generations as well, and for that I am grateful.


The early morning sky, stunning sunrise, gorgeous clouds and impeccably dressed nature are truly gifts from God and a site to behold. I will spend my day in gratitude, enjoying these gifts and experiencing a true connection to everything of beauty that surrounds me.
