James 1:17 .  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows

This is an amazing time of year. You can take that as either I’m being sarcastic or actually believe that it’s an amazing time of year. For now I’m gonna let you wonder. (Just a hint, the older I get the less I like winter). 

I ran into a good friend the other day and he was telling me about all the crappies they caught last weekend. He said that they were plentiful. They said they must’ve caught over 200. There was a group of about five or six of them and they all only took their limit of 10. But they had an absolute ball. Was such a good day on hard water. He was very anxious to do it again this weekend.

Went to the outdoor show with my wife over the weekend and I would say the crowd was very plentiful. Fact, I would say it was absolutely huge. The show administrator should’ve been very delighted with the crowds they had. Everybody has been cooped up all winter and I am sure cabin fever had hit. It looked like all of the booths were busy with activity and I saw a lot of money exchanging hands. That makes everybody happy. After mulling around the show for a while ran into an old friend who was doing one of the seminars. He is one guy who can talk a lot about bass fishing. He is very knowledgeable and a very good fisherman. (and duck hunter) And he must be doing something right because they love having him come back. He loves doing the shows and he's fun to listen to. You could say he has plenty of expertise to pass on. Visiting with him he had mentioned how plentifully blessed he had been. Just got engaged to his sweetheart. Was about to retire from his job which would allow him to do his outdoor show on a full-time.

Luke 6:38 . Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

The outdoors is such a wonderful thing. It is an absolute wonderful opportunity God gives us. Gives to each one of us to enjoy. And many things can come from it.  Plentiful can be easily described in the outdoors and plentiful is what we get out of it. But does God look at us and say we have been plentiful in doing his work?

Ephesians 3:20.  Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.

Are we following God‘s Commandments? Are we listening to His word and growing upon them? Are we leading others to Him? Are we being plentiful in serving Him?

2 Corinthians 9:8. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work

So let’s enjoy the plentiful outdoors while we give PLENTY to Him. He’s going to give us plenty at the end. Heaven!
