The Fighting Fish

There is a delightful tetra fish in our tank that has come to the end of its life. However, as close as it is to death, it is fighting hard. What goes through the mind of our scaly friends is beyond me or if heaven is their home or they are just a passing through is another mystery. But what I find inspiring is both how hard it is fighting to live and how much his little scaly friends are swimming beside him, seeming to encourage him. Or they are just hungry. Nevertheless, a fighter he is. Something in him keeps moving forward when being taken down. I like to think it is a touch or fingerprint of the Creator who is life. It inspires and encourages the no matter what is dragging you down, the touch of the Creator is there to promote life and keep you afloat.
