Fruit Fly Lesson

The fruit fly lives for just one day. Just 24 hours.

It wakes up in the morning, brushes its teeth, and by the end of the day it is brown bread … totally dead.

It’s hardly worth it buying a tube of toothpaste and using it just once!

So remember this next time you brush your teeth. Thank God for yet another day and enjoy what it brings!


  1. I will never brush in the same way again!!! Thanks for reminding us how blessed we are Victor!

  2. Hi Shadowlands.

    It's so nice to see you visiting me again. Happy New Year. I hope you're well.

    God bless.

  3. I think we have mutant fruit flies over here in the US, Victor. I wish I didn't like bananas so much. Do you know they appear out of thin air and multiply like crazy? I would have thought that we would need two fruit flies to reproduce but I guess mutant fruit flies have no need of a mate? Lol.

    I am grateful that we live longer than a day and I suppose the fruit flies are very thankful that so many people like bananas :)

    I hope you are doing well, Victor! You are in my prayers!

  4. Hi Mary,

    I can't understand how fruit flies just appear out of nowhere. We have a lot of bananas at home too and it makes me wonder how we get all these fruit flies. Must be something on the bananas itself which hatches as the fruit matures.

    Thank you so much for your prayers Mary. Much needed.

    Praying for you and yours.

    God bless.

  5. This is my one new thing I learned today, thank you my friend...Hugs

  6. Hi Bernie,

    It's so kind of you to write in. Thanx. I hope you are well.

    God bless.

  7. Victor,

    A fruit fly will live for less than one day if it falls into my glass of wine. So annoying when a fruit fly decides to take a swim. I know I have missed the point of your story. Well, actually I didn't... You packed a big message into a very short story.

    God bless

  8. Hello Sue,

    I know what you mean about a fly in a wine glass. Reminds me of the day i was in a french restaurant and was served soup. There was a dead fly floating on the plate. I called the waiter and pointing to the plate I said: "Voici le mouche!"

    He corrected me and said: "Non, voici la mouche!"

    I replied: "Wow ... you must have great eyesight!"

    God bless.

  9. That is very funny, Victor! I've forgotten a lot of my school French. Never had an opportunity to use it. But I shall now always remember the French word for fly thanks to your comment. And I shall never forget that all French flies are female... so how come they breed so prolifically?



God bless you.
