#3 – Ice Fishing

Ice Fishing

I’m not much of an angler.  I enjoy fishing; I’m just not very good at it.  I’ve always wanted to try ice fishing, so when Matt’s Boy Scout Troop setup an outing, I figured this was the perfect chance.  To be honest, I can see the appeal.  It was cold, windy and definitely icy, but it was a spectacular kind of winter beauty.  We didn’t have much luck.  I managed to get one fish on the line, but he got away right before I landed him.  Matt didn’t fare much better.  It was unfortunate because the guy next to us pulled out six in a row!  But, such is the fishing life I guess.  All in all, it was a lot of fun and I’m definitely willing to give it another try someday…but maybe with one of those cool little shantys!

#2 – Prayer Journal

I am an unashamed Christian.  I will freely admit that to anyone.  However there is one area of my walk that I’ve always been somewhat ashamed of and that is my prayer life.  I have no problem with corporate prayer, but when it comes to time alone, I find it very hard to “go to your room, close the door and pray” (Matthew 6:6).  It’s not that I don’t believe in the power of prayer; quite the contrary, I’ve witnessed how powerful it can be.  I guess it’s just not something I’ve never really worked on.  With that in mind, I decided to start a prayer journal to really help me focus on praying.  While I was picking a journal up, I found a book by one of my favorite Christian authors, so I took that as a sign and picked it up too!
