Here is my deal.
I turned to sports to make me feel more worthy and seem normal. I lettered in three sports in high school. Football, baseball and wrestling. I played a little college baseball. I have had 8 knee surgeries and I need another for a PCL that I dont have in my right knee. I need a knee replacement that will have to what until I am older. I am 38 with the knees/body of a 70 year old. I have had hernia surgery and need another. I looked back at my life and can say that I learned a lot about diversity and life thru sports. I also regret losing so much of my physical ability because I felt to need to be thy quarterback that people looked up to or that catcher that needed to hear the hand claps. Or feel like a champ and a winner when my hand was raised at a wrestling match. I didn't have to do all of these things and I regret it now. My left knee has had no cartilage in it since I was 17 and has been bone on bone. I have had 2 ligaments replaced in it. Why did this have to happen to me. My perps have taken more than my youth away and more than messed my brain up. They have taken a lot of my future away too.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
