  Fisherman´s Prayer  
  God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,  
  I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.

" Thanks for visiting . . . May God Bless You & Keep You Safe "

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
