5 Gallon Bait Bucket Modifications!

5 gallon bucket bait aerator modifycation

My brother and I have been using five gallon buckets with Marine Metal Hush Bubble Water Resistant Air Pump as live wells for many years. One thing has always bothered me about this set up. The air tubing always gets in the way as it is draped over the inside of the bucket to supply air to the air stone. I finally fixed the issue! Also I purchased a little net Frabill 3047 Floating Dip Net that we should have been using for years!

Baby Number Two

Babies have been popping out all over the place around here lately. The one on the right was cut out a little over two months ago and the new one on the left came out au naturel, breathing her first O2 on the 15th of this month. It is hard to wrap your mind around the "scientific fact" that all this comes from nothing, and is truly meaningless save for the fancy delusions the chemicals in our brains cook up as they percolate. At least that is what the chemicals in my college professors brains wanted me to believe during their failed attempts to educate me.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5
Father in Heaven I thank you for these precious eternal gifts who you have chosen to place in our family. I pray that they will give the life you have given back to you through the work of your Holy Spirit. Thank you for showing us Your glory and character through marriage, childbirth and family. Thank you for being born into this world and dying to give us the freedom to love one another!

Hayley Kirkland Marries Kyle Adkins

For the body time moves on and the rhythm of life repeats. You have to live a few decades to full grasp what it is to be in the body and the balance that must be maintained with the eternal spirit. This is only fully possible with the knowledge and practice of God’s Words to us and the help of the Holy Spirit within us.

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

There is no clearer picture of this than our Heavenly Father’s plan for man and woman in marriage. I am happy and privilege to have been witness to the marriage of someone who will always remain in part for my mind a little girl. One of three sisters who in this life I had the joy of spending many happy times with in their innocent childhood years.

May Hayley and Kyle discover you more and more day by day as they live for each other just as Jesus lives for us. Hayley, Karlee and Jenna I am one who will always love you, I have seen you with light in your eyes.

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.
(Luke 11:34-37)

Walk in the Spirit girls, that is where the love we seek is truly found!
