The water is warm and the oxygen that fish need for peak activity is not found in warmer water. Therefore they tend to go deeper or become more active when the days are at their coolest. That's why early in the morning is some of the best time to be on the lake or river. My favorite way to start is by being ready to cast my first bait when the sun is barely peeking over the horizon. One must take advantage of every minute the fish are active because in the summer those minutes are few. As many of you know, my favorite way to wake bass up this time of year is with a top water bait. The sound of this plug echoes for unknown distances at the break of day and each plop signals to the fisherman to be ready for what might be lurking just below the surface. The combination of sight and sound can at times be just too much for nearby bass to ignore. And for the fisher- man, the crash of water just behind that bait can also be as addictive as well. Once you see and hear that unique moment, you will place it in its own mental compart- ment, and nothing will ever join it. Thankfully there are other moments that deserve their own special place. I imagine me making a file and labeling it with that moment but never adding anything else to the file except that which caused me to make it in the first place. It's like making a folder on your computer for certain types of pictures or documents and only finding one picture or document that fits in the folder. In one way you are hoping for other occasions to add to the folder, but it seems that nothing ever fits like that first file. There are a few things like that in my life. A first degree. A first accomplishment. A first purchase. All of these things were so special to me then and still hold their own special place today. But what really matters are not fish or firsts but moments when someone wrote something or said something that caused me to change into a better man. It was a sentence that Power Band Witness- ing Tool Bracelet (Salvation Bracelet) – A fun craft to make for church, youth group, camp, Vacation Bible School and more.

I have got to hear him preach a few times at Central Baptist Church in Corbin, KY. I attended a few night services there. Pastor Chad battled brain cancer. Which he has overcome with the healing attribute of God. He has a great testimony to that too. Pastor Andrew Dyer from Corinth Baptist Church in London intends to nominate Fugitt at the KBC's annual meeting in Lexington this November. "Chad serves with wisdom and humil- ity," he has a proven track record of leadership in a variety of roles in KBC life. He understands the relationships between the president and the executive director-treasurer and state mission board, which is important during this time of transition." Pastor Andrew Dyer wowed me. It was a lesson that challenged me. It was a gesture that took me aback. You see while things like these may deserve a place in their own folder; unlike fish and firsts, their benefits continue not just as motivation but as actual ingredi- ents that mold me every day. So, this week don't forget that while you are making memories someone needs you to become a good one for them. Sunday Services 1st Service at 9:00 A.M. 2nd Service at 10:30 A.M.
