Spiritual cast net
It's shrimping season in the area and there are lots of people out in boats casting nets over bait for shrimp. What this means is that you can count on a lot more boats on the water and a lot more activity at night which is when the cast netting is done. It's hard to find a quiet spot for a mooring due to all the activity.
I liked what was said at the meeting tonight. One of my friends mentioned that when there are problems in life that come along that appear unmanageable, he throws out a spiritual cast net that surrounds the problem and let's God then pull in the net. It's a great vision and especially appropriate considering the activity on the waterways. I like to think that problems that I can't solve are the ones that I just let go of and give them to my Higher Power. It's my way of not trying to fix something that I can't and not trying to continue with the insanity of doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
It was a really good weekend and nothing seemed unmanageable. I'm grateful for this program that helps me get better each day.
