Good morning and welcome to the "Fireside" again and may this find you well. Come in a rest a little while as we catch up on the latest news from this small part of the world.
I so love those quiet moments we have in our thoughts and memories of days past. They are so peaceful and filled with peace. I think of times like when this picture was taken and how simple life was. Just man, his dog and living in the great outdoors. The best part is the fish on the other end of the line.
As we pass through life it is so very important to go back and cherish those moments. If there has been one thing I have learned over the past several years is to enjoy the moment you find yourself in at the time a little more.
The combines are running here full force now as the farmers race to get the wonderful crops the land has produced off. It has been a bumper crop year for them in this area. We are truly blessed knowing that many will be provided for through their hard work and God's provision.
Planning on a River Drift on the Bow River, one of the top trout rivers in Canada, well known for its trophy trout it produces with 6 different species and several in the world class range.
This is my river drifter, all self contained, I wear waders, boots and flippers to manoeuvre as well I have ors to get into the out of the way areas. This trip we are planning will be a two day trip with an overnight stay on one of the many islands on the river. The distance we will travel will be in the 60 mile range. It is a peaceful trip hopefully interrupted often by fish. This is all Fly Fishing and a challenge to outwit these smarter than the average fish.
Fall colours are already starting to show. This is such a wonderful time of the year as God prepares the land to rest.
I often think it is the time God calls us to rest as well after all the busy summer activities we seem to find ourselves going through. A good time to reflect on where we have been, what we have accomplished and maybe what some future plans, goals and ambitions are for the next season.
In the Bible we can read in the book of Ecclesiastes a time for everything. A good read as we think of time. Time is a gift given by the Father and one which is to be treated with respect and reverence as we never really know when there will be no more time for us. As you read as the Father to reveal to you those areas where you can better serve Him and your fellow pilgrims along the journey.
Be blessed this day, know that you are loved first by the Father above and by each person whom you touch in your lives.
