Survival of the Fishest

Do you believe in miracles?

Last fall, the little pond in our backyard froze over before we got the goldfish out. I actually thought they were already either dead or eaten by some sort of critter, because I hadn’t seen them for a while.

A couple of weeks ago, we had “ice out” on the pond and the fish started to make appearances. I’m not easily shocked, but I gotta tell you, I was taken aback, given the water depth and the cold winter we had. Six golden-gilled wonders somehow made it.

These courageous fish survived for a reason. I just hope they can figure out what that is and use the gift of life they’ve been given to help others.
