Life is a series of challenges.

I woke up this morning happy and just fine the night before. I noticed that my socket hurt and that my jaw was stiff and swollen.
Well after a shower and a Sweet husband attending to a prescription for me. I look like this. The swelling is progressing. Thank God the Pain is bearable (yet steadily getting worse). I am feeling flu like symptoms and I think I'm in for a ride. I may go into the urgent care if it goes to far. Hubby researched it on Google and the advice is to do so if symptoms get intense. Irony is that just Thursday I had my complete evaluation (no cavities!). The x rays showed no problem with any other teeth near the dry socket. I told him it just didn't feel right and it was dismissed to the slow healing time of a dry socket. I am supposed to have a crown replaced on Monday morning (other side upper) . Funny, if it were not so darn tragic:)

Life is a series of challenges.

I called the dentist on his emergency line. He gave me the number to his college. I called him and he was in Colorado enjoying his day. He very kindly ordered an anti biotic rx for me.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
