Enduring Pain

One of the prices we humans pay for our existence is the necessity of enduring PAIN. When I went to the ER at Halifax Hospital in Daytona to have an infected, pus-filled finger lanced, I was surprised and a bit dismayed when I aw the size of the hypodermic needle that was used to inject a deadening drug into the finger prior to lancing it. My surprise turned to apprehension when the Nurse Practitioner said “this may hurt a bit’ and drove the needle directly into my finger TWICE. If I had a Brazil nut between my molars, it would have been easily crushed as I gritted my teeth in PAIN. One of the prices we humans pay for our existence is the necessity of enduring PAIN.

I recall having to have a finger operated on before when stitches were required. As the doctor stitched, I asked: “Doc, if it’s our brain that experience the pain, how come that damn finger hurts so much.” He just laughed and said, “I’ll get back with you on that.” I recall having to have a finger operated on before when stitches were required.

Why did our Intelligent Designer include a PAIN gene in our incredible body-machine? It was a very insightful thing to do because, for one thing, it protects us from damaging ourselves as would happen if we held onto a very hot object too long or allowing a pit bulldog to chew on our leg without kicking the hell out of it.

So, like Evil, pain is something we have to learn to live with. God only knows how much I’ve had to endure during my 93 years of existence!
