For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. 1 Timothy 4:8
 

Forgiveness

Matthew 18

Some people ask me how it is possible to forgive others.  The answer is that in light of the vast number of sins that God has forgiven me, I forgive others.  One of my favorite Bible passages to help explain this is from Matthew 18.

Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.

800 fishing trips

Thanks to my dad!

 
 
800 Fishing Trips
 
 
I'm very thankful that my dad invested so much time into me and still does to this day.  Growing up, we did many activities together including going on 800 fishing trips during the first 20 years of my life.  Some highlights included catching carp when I was 4 years old, catching walleye when I was 7, catching salmon when I was 9, catching steelhead when I was 12, catching massive sharks and other ocean fish when I was 14, and later going spearfishing as well.
