Upon Further Reflection

A recent fishing trip in the chilly winter waters of one of our nearby lakes seemed to be an exercise in futility, until I caught this:

                                                    Winter 2011 -U.P.

(No, it was not enhanced or otherwise photoshopped, but I did have to rotate it to get the proper orientation.)

I thought about giving this post the title "How was it made?" because my mind thought some might wonder how the image was created, while others might reflect on Genesis 1.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. - Genesis 1:1-10 KJV
Upon further reflection, the image is just that, a reflection of a day in which I thought that all God delivered was an empty net, but He actually gave me so much more.

Some days we are not meant to catch fish, but to catch a glimpse of Him.
