Many of us will find time during the Easter weekend to spend a little time on our favorite trout stream, and as you do, try to focus on more than just catching fish. Take in the beauty around you. Appreciate it. Savor it. Really look at it. And most importantly, consider its Maker. Be grateful.
Every day that we spend on the water we are blessed. We are in the perfect place to consider the wonder of God’s creation. What on God’s earth is more beautiful than a crystal clear trout stream? And how could He have done better in creating the streams’ inhabitants?
He designed all of this and put it here for us. He could just as easily created nothing but piranhas and all of the water could be chocolate syrup. But of course He didn’t. That wasn’t the plan. Then again, if He hadn’t followed through with the rest of the plan...the plan of Salvation... it’s doubtful that any of us would be able to enjoy it. That plan came together about 2000 years ago this weekend. Think on that.
