Need a lifesaver?

Lifesaver. Lifesavers. Life Savior.

1. Lifesaver = Floating life ring, necessary for rescuing when one is thrust upon (under, into?) water over one's head. Could be stormy weather, calm water, murky, muddy, clear water. Regardless, assistance is needed NOW. The one tossing the lifesaver is rescuing the floundering, waterlogged person. Pulling in the rope, the rescuer establishes the struggling on solid ground.

2. Lifesavers = Candy, shaped like a rescue ring, but full of sugar and tasty, mouth smacking flavor. Tart, sweet, fragrant...Tossed into the mouth of someone who needs a sweet word or two, energy, and attention. A form of 'instant sugar' for individuals suffering from low blood sugar. At times, a lifesaver could prevent more serious health issues. Side effect: relaxation, smiling, and juicy mouth.

3. Life Savior = The (Everlasting) Life Ring, not tossed, but graciously given free of cost, for those floundering in life and the stormy seas of daily events. Without this Life Savior, rescue will not happen. Disaster is sure to follow.

Grab the Ring. Let Him tow you to shore. He is the source of all rescue, assistance, firm ground, energy, attention, and eternity.

Go ahead. Grab a Life Saver, Lifesaver, and Life Savior.

Smile. Relax.

Now, about life jackets...

Thoughts of love

"As high as the sky is above the earth,
so great is His love for those who honour Him.
As far as east is from the west,
so far does He remove our sins from us."

Psalm 103:11-12 (Good News)

Square Flying-Flies

They're weird. Square flying flies zip around, turning sharp angles, forming squares, hexagons, triangles, and other shapes with corners. Unless another square flying fly actually accidentally travels into the sharp shape of another. Then a brief buzzing battle ensues until they quickly break apart into their own shape patterns.

Usually, these square flying flies do not bother people. They just fly their holding patterns.


Not all flies do this. Some are very annoying and consistently and persistently attack faces, eyes, ears, and food of humans. (They do the same to animals, but that doesn't bother me as much.) Regular flies are available to land on windows or doors or walls where one can smash them with a swatter. But not square flying flies. Can't get them to land on something for the purpose of termination. They just hover in mid air, flying their sharp angled shapes.

Hmmmm. For why are square flying flies frequently flying familiar formations? Food for fun focus of fact finding.
