Fishing For Men

leejohndrowteamThe unbaited hook was tossed in the river again and again. No fish took the hook. Finally on the last cast the hook got caught on a large cement mooring block.

I awoke from that dream and immediately this scripture came in to view. Continue reading Fishing For Men

You’ve Got Situations, We Have Solutions.

leejohndrowteamI awoke, cloudy from sleep, but clearly hearing the words, “what is the solution”. Do you mean what is the answer, I thought. “What is the solution” came thundering back to me. Clearly my sleep had ended for the night. I lay in bed and rolled the words for a few minutes. I know an answer is different than a solution, but a solution can be part of an answer.
