the fish that did not get away

Well, we’re back from our vacation. Our family had a great time. Nothing fancy. We just stayed in our camping grounds in Nebraska and did the following:

  • hung out with our parents.
  • fished.
  • ate.
  • fished.
  • played with the kids
  • fished.
  • swam.
  • fished.
  • and swam some more.

Despite not hitting my goal of catching 153 fish (I ended up with 92), I managed to catch the biggest bass fish I have ever caught. Here it is:

bass vs man. it was an epic battle. score one for man.

Some day, I’d like to work part-time as a fishing guide and possibly become a professional fisherman in my dreams. I would have my own TV show and it would look like this:

And here’s a few more pics from our trip:

    Congrats on the fish. Sounds like a great Sabbath–refreshing and rejuvenating.

    Pastor Cho,

    I appreciate how your blog is multifaceted. It is a blog about life (which entails everything from the really serious, e.g., race issues, to the light and fun e.g., fishing) and I really enjoy that. Thanks for sharing about life, all its complexities and all its joys.

    Also, your fishing pictures make me think of my younger days as a fisherboy (not man at that time!). I think I might have to get into that again.

  3. Congrats, really nice pics..

    Hit ‘Submit’ too fast…

    Assuming you used a lure. What did you use? any snags?

  8. […] had the most surreal phone call while I was fishing in Nebraska during my vacation. A guy named Nicholas Kristof called. For those that don’t know, Kristof […]

Country living. 
I like. The secret to being grateful is no secret. You choose to be grateful. Then you do it again and again. Every day. If you forget, start again. Back to fishing...I mean, umm...back to writing a book. There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace.
