The Story of the Wooden Jesus Fish
On October 3rd 2006 I was walking the road where I live. The first two pictures are the two sections of the road, and the third picture is a small field. I was about to turn 37 years old, and I was in serious contemplation about my life and Goldfish Guitars. Here I was, an engineer in the Merchant Marine and importing and selling goldfish and clownfish guitars. I had many doubts at this time in my life regarding the direction I was headed. I wandered this road with my cup of coffee for several hours. In the plot of grass shown in picture 3, there used to be less grass and more mud. The grass has grown longer since 2006. I was walking in this mud grass filled space when suddenly my neck snapped down, and I looked in the mud and saw an "S". I reached into the mud and pulled out a piece of wood with the letter "S" on it. I scraped the mud away, and I couldn't believe what I found. A small wooden fish with the name "Jesus" on it. Well, I got an answer with the little wooden fish. First, the fish is my company symbol. Second, the wooden fish is not plywood but solid and is shaped like one of my guitars. Third, God was telling me I should talk a little about how Jesus rescued me from being a drunken sailor and made me a designer of kids guitars.
I will tell you that my story of deliverance is unbelievable and cannot be told on an Internet website. I design and make guitars, and they mostly sell to children. I will not tell the bad and sad stories and advertise for the Devil. I will say that when you are drowning in sin that you know who's hand pulls you out of the water. When you are in a pit full of anger and despair, you know who threw the rope into the pit and rescued you.
IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THIS LITTLE FISH IS ONLY 2 INCHES LONG. WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF FINDING THIS LITTLE FISH IN THE MUD? DEFINATELY AN AMAZING GOD THING. OF COURSE I STILL HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT WHAT I AM DOING AND WHERE I AM GOING, BUT WHEN I DO, I THINK OF THE LITTLE WOODEN JESUS FISH!!!!!!!!!!
