ST. CROIX INSIGHTS
Christmas 2017 Message
BY BRETT ANDERSON/ST.CROIX ADVISORS, LLC
I believe in a lot of things…i.e. what goes up must come down; money doesn’t grow on trees; my dog loves me more than anything; it’s easier to spend money vs. make it; life’s not worthy of living without chocolate; the earth is round. But my biggest belief is that God does exist.
I believe in the God of creation. It’s so easy with the hustle and bustle of life that we don’t think about why or how we all got here. I feel the most free when I’m outside away from the city and technology. I could be on the North Shore, shelling on any coastal waters, fishing in the icy straits, searching for rednecks in South Dakota or watching the sunset off the back of the boat in the Mediterranean.
He exists when I look at my dog, watch whales 25 feet off my boat, see mice enter my home in the winter or gaze at bald eagles that hover over the St. Croix River.
I believe we all have eternal life. Our bodies were not created to live forever. Yet at times, I find that hard to process. Life is short and we should enjoy it while we are here on Earth.
