I would have like to read more. Your last line - 'Wiping from my face the salty brine of tears I dare look up into the face of the lifeguard that resuscitated my soul - my Savior.' oh so very true! He is our lifeguard!
I've read most of the entries this week, and there are several with quite similar themes--but this one...wowsers! This is the one to hold up as an exemplar of the "Jesus/God-as-lifeguard" take on the topic. Just beautifully done.
Strong message in a short story. Nicely done.
That twist at the end was very effective. Well done!
