    We went fishing today and took my brothers boat to lake Monty to hopefully catch a few fish. He just got it out of the shop for a tune up and was real excited about taking it out. But when we got there the motor wouldn't crank, after about 15 min of investigation, we discovered, when they tuned up the engine the Mechanic forgot one key element (the spark plugs):sad2: good thing my brother is a preacher too, because he was ready to cuss, but the lord calmed his anger. So we didn't let that stop us we used the old faithful trolling motor and caught a few small fish, but we couldn't get far from the boat ramp because the wind was blowing us toward it all day. Never let minor set backs stop you from fishing.
    Phil. 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Think about that next time the devil trys to set you back while your trying to go catch some of God's fish.
    God bless you'll Boc Members

    Some of us realize that things happen for a purpose. Perhaps there was a tragedy on the water averted by the Lord causing those circumstances. That being said, I'd find a new mechanic. I have always found it very difficult to tune an engine without the spark plugs! :wink:

    Isn't a bad day on the water always better than a good day at work?

    I guess being a preacher that doesn't apply considering the benefits of sharing the Gospel :smile2:

    Sorry about the motor, but at least you got out there. Good luck on future trips
