Well - I got news this week - not the kind of news I'd like - but it's news so thought I'd share it. I must preface this by saying that I have quite the teeth - only one cavity in my 30 plus years - 8 years of braces - you get the picture - I take good care of my teeth - when I go for a cleaning, I never expect to be told I have a cavity, etc., etc. So imagine my surprise when, a few months ago, the dentist tells me that I have a tooth that has decay UNDERNEATH of it - now six months later, the dentist has tried some "clever" ways to fix it, and has decided that it isn't working so - guess what, he says the last resort is a root canal! Can you just feel my pain??? Not only are we talking two - three appointments of two hours each (in my NOT-favorite place in the world) but we are also talking some of the MOST EXPENSIVE dental work you can have done. LOVELY!! I am praying for a tooth fairy - anything to save me before I must face the dreaded ROOT CANAL! I am trying to smile, but after all of that digging around, now it hurts!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
