Guess, i have built up a (large?) measure of immunity/(reliance on God)…against worrying too much about his welfare/life through the years (of civil unrest, political upheavals, mudslides, hurricanes, earthquakes, violence…starvation, kidnappings, high-jackings)…you name it awful ings…there and elsewhere…keeping ALL including my Beautiful Sis-in-law in my prayers tonight.
(The) perils a plenty of an Extraverted-Friendly-Nature-Chick like me…the hopeful-optimistic kind of fragile-life who enJOYs walking barefoot through blowing wind, grass, mud, dirt, sand, rain, snow…(and figuratively, too…IF needed to get the compassion job done.)
Some messy jobs can be extremely intellectually/physically/spiritually satisfying, You know. 🙂
Just curious…IF?? if…
You’re growing into a strangler/killer (mind) weed “at the ready to repay with evil”…that i should of pulled/chopped at the roots years ago…or (IF?? if) You’re blossoming into an Amazing-Compassion-Perennial-Beautiful-Wild Flower!:)…a Blessing!:)
(i’ll think the latter for now…till sufficiently proven otherwise.)
ummm, think hard joanie: what’s hanging over my head? …LIFE!…etc. idk ;)…(clouds, spiders, webs, clowns, conversations?-lol;)…laundry.
what’s under my feet?…
Caution joanie…bugs bite; gators snap; cats scratch…(even when You Care/Love them lots!).
God knows what He’s doing…!!! (continuing to try my best and let God of Compassion do the rest.)
btw: i’d rather suffer…for the compassionate/right/conscience-easing thing/choice…than suffer because of sheer stupidity/ignorance/complacency…or for the wrong thing.
[…] Researchers found that these flies can react to a threat 50 times faster than a human can blink. “The fly performs a very sophisticated calculation, in a very short amount of time, to determine where the danger lies and exactly how to bank for the best escape,” explains Dickinson.
Scientists have discovered that one type of fly, the fruit fly, is able to make turns similar to those made by fighter jets, but in a fraction of a second. At birth, “they can fly like an ace,” says Professor Michael Dickinson. “It’s like putting a newborn baby in the cockpit of a fighter aircraft and it knowing what to do.”
Researchers filmed the flies’ aerobatics and found that they flap their wings 200 times per second. Yet, a single wingbeat is sufficient to reorient their bodies and begin an escape.
What do you think? Did the fruit fly’s aerobatic ability evolve? Or was it designed? [excerpted article: Was It Designed? The Fruit Fly’s Aerobatic Ability
Questions for Reflection:
We live in dangerous times (threatening us: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically)…is my response time fast enough?!
Am i wise/willing/humble/flexible/fast/nimble/agile/calculative enough to change direction…away from danger?!
