Tom’s Miracle Surgery
A pastor asked if anyone in the church congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers.
Susie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, “Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."
You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagine the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.
"Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain." We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold it in place."
Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.
"Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely."
All the men sighed with unified relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.
A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said, "I'm Tom Smith."
The entire congregation held its collective breath.
"I just wanted to tell my wife………
the word is sternum."
Three years ago I ran across some information that helped me understand the true cost of owning a car, and I was shocked to learn that over the years I have spent anywhere from 15-25% of my income to own and operate a vehicle. According to one website, the yearly cost to operate my car was just over $14,000. However, I suggest calculating your own unique set of metrics, then ask yourself what benefits you might realize if you purchased an electric bike. Try running these calculations yourself on either one of these links: Kelly Blue Book, or the True Cost of Driving to broaden your knowledge base, and remember to always remain open to the possibility of change.
I love sharing my passion for electric bikes, and I wish you the very best in your own passionate journey.
