Wisdom Tooth


I had a wisdom tooth pulled recently
In the dentist office, done surgically
Someone said in humorous freedom
I hope you do not lose any wisdom

I have heard wisdom comes with age
Nothing to do with teeth at any stage
But the thought still brought a smile
Showing care, made it all worthwhile

Wisdom teeth are the last to arrive
I did not have pain like a sharp knife
But the tooth had shifted in such a way
It was a food trap with a risk of decay

Stitches attached from my gum to cheek
Surrounding area was sore after a week
Both the tooth and stitches out, I am free
Healing well, no infection, he released me

Off and on, for three months, now at last
Series of dental work over and in the past
Grateful for insurance paying cost in part
I know the rest, He will faithfully impart

I have been reminded of His loving care
With people greatly suffering everywhere
You may be going through a difficult time
Trust God for strength by His hand divine
 
1 Pet. 5:7 (NIV)
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
