Grateful for Prayer and Answers
It was a long, rough day. I got up at 4:30 am to get coffee made and a light breakfast on the table. We were out the door around 5:30 am and got to the boat before 6. Ice and crates had to be loaded on to the boat as well as other equipment.
We got to the island by 8:00 am and work started right away. Everyone worked hard and long with a stop for lunch around 1 in the afternoon and then back to work until all the fish were cleaned and ready to go at around 4:30 pm. Everyone got in a little rest on the trip back only to have to unload the boat in the dark when we arrived a little after 6. 2000 tilapia were brought in this Friday from the floating cages at the island.
Many of my prayers for the venture were answered in a positive way: safety, good weather, happy workers and a good harvest.
Thank you, Lord, for all your blessings on this day.
This is just what I did on the way home from the island on Friday. I just sat back and watched the water go by on our way home and enjoyed the fact that the week was done, the fish haul was over and we all lived to tell about it...
