" Just Fishin' "

Life and time is precious folks. There is no to other way to say it. Every moment we are given is a gift. We are not promised tomorrow, and that is why we should live each day to it's fullest, for GOD"s glory.

One of those ways is by spending time with family. I heard a song on the radio yesterday, that reminded me of that fact once more.

The song is sung by Trace Adkins and the title is "Just Fishin'" In the song a father is taking his little girl fishing. But there is more to this than the daughter realizes. What is really taking place is a special time between a daddy and his little girl. A time to be with one another, to enjoy life, and create memories that last well into the future. Here's the video...



I’m lost in her there holdin’ that pink rod and reel
She’s doin’ almost everything but sittin’ still
Talkin’ ‘bout her ballet shoes and training wheels
And her kittens
And she thinks we’re just fishin’

I say, “Daddy loves you, baby” one more time
She says, “I know. I think I got a bite.”
And all this laughin’, cryin, smilin’ dyin’ here inside’s
What I call, livin’

And she thinks we’re just fishin’ on the riverside
Throwin’ back what we could fry
Drownin’ worms and killin’ time
Nothin’ too ambitious
She ain’t even thinkin’ ‘bout
What’s really goin’ on right now
But I guarantee this memory’s a big’in
And she thinks we’re just fishin’

She’s already pretty, like her mama is
Gonna drive the boys all crazy
Give her daddy fits
And I better do this every chance I get
‘Cause time is tickin’
(Yeah it is)

And she thinks we’re just fishin’ on the riverside
Throwin’ back what we could fry
Drownin’ worms and killin’ time
Nothin’ too ambitious
She ain’t even thinkin’ ‘bout
What’s really goin’ on right now
But I guarantee this memory’s a big’in
And she thinks we’re just fishin’

She ain’t even thinkin’ ‘bout
What’s really goin’ on right now
But I guarantee this memory’s a big’in
And she thinks we’re just fishin’
Yeah, aww, she thinks we’re just fishin’
We ain’t only fishin’
(This ain’t about fishin’)


Ahhh... I balled when I first heard that song, and get teary eyed every time I hear it now! ;) It reminds me so much of all those days my daddy has taken me fishing. All those afternoons we have spent on the pier, letting time pass by in each other's company. Talking about much of nothing, and watching the waves roll by. I never realized then how special those times were. :)

Now that I'm older, I have begun to realize just how precious time is. Especially time spent with family. There will come a time when I can't go fishing with my daddy. It's just how life goes.

So grasp moments like these when they present themselves! And when those times depart, cherish them, and never let them go! :D

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4:14

Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
