Does that expression mean anything to you? In days gone by, “Gone Fishing” meant just that, someone had put a shingle outside their business and had taken time to go fishing.
Going on a holiday, the phrase would signify that the person was taking time to get away from the city, their 9 – 5 routine was going to be on hold… they were “going fishing”. Family was packed up and away they headed for a seaside vacation, time at the lake, river, anywhere but in the city.
My son goes fishing, once the season starts, he puts a kayak on his car and off he goes, he will fish whenever he has the time to get away. No he doesn’t live in a small town, or out in the country, he lives in downtown “Big City” It his way of finding his quiet time, he dedicates his time to making time for something that brings him an inner quiet to recharge his batteries to tend to his day-to-day challenges/opportunities.
Opportunities don’t always just happen, we have to be proactive in working towards our goals,to ensure we remain, spiritually healthy.
