Lose My Soul

Every morning on the way to drop Carson off at school he makes me put in the Toby Mac CD so he can hear song 15. "Lose My Soul" I love the song too and have heard it hundreds of times and just the other day the lyrics really jumped out at me. "Father God, I am clay in your hands, Help me to stay that way through all life's demands,
'Cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me, And every little thing I make up my mind to be... I realized that as a Christian trying to do things for the Lord in this world it does seem like things are always chipping and nagging at me. The things I have made up my mind to be, or rather God has led me to be, have not always been easy roads. Sometimes it seems like God is testing me to see if I am faithful enough to serve Him. Through all things I try to remember God is in control. Sometimes it takes some difficult moments to lead us closer in our walk with the Lord. It is hard to see at the time it is going on but as you come through it you begin to see how at that moment you became totally dependent on the Lord. You realize without Him you would have never made it through that difficult time. "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose" Romans 8:28.

Ice Fishing In Kentucky

Who ever said you can't go ice fishing in Kentucky did not know what they were talking about. I have pictures of my son Carter doing just that, Ice Fishing!
This particular fishing trip was not very productive, ended up hitting Captain D's drive thru on the way home! When the fishing is slow you have to find other ways to occupy the time. Like sitting on a pile of ice!
