The Tooth Will Set You Free: A Little Bit Of Wisdom

A little over a week ago, I went in for oral surgery to have my wisdom teeth removed. This was long overdue.  I was forewarned, that because I’m in my 30’s that recovery was going to be a little hard. They drilled that statement so many times, that I was starting to feel brittle and old.  Anyways, sometimes I’m a little stubborn when it comes to things like this and should have just down it a decade ago. There were no complications,  I went in on a Friday, got home, rested and ate a butt load on pudding and jello. Everything seemed to be fine.

God’s timing is funny sometimes as he always put someone in his path. For a few years it was a man named Larry that did house visit bible studies weekly for two years. My dad grew up in a church environment, and did the bible studies and talking the talk…at times. Behind closed doors he used scripture incorrectly and out of context to control people and do whatever he wants (wife submit, children obey, I can be forgiven of my sins) An abusive father preaching about God is not appealing. I grew to hate him and God. (NOTE: To this day I have forgiven my father, and love him. We do not have a relationship, but I do not wish anything ill towards him and still pray for him)
