Dental trips are not really a barrel of fun (monkeys are more fun in barrels). They are good and necessary if I want healthy teeth. I do. I had no cavities today!! I think that means that the large amount of sweets that I ate are actually good for my teeth. Maybe not. The dental tooth cleaning lady said I had healthy teeth today and a mouth full of them. Those are her exact words. Was that a compliment or did I get called a big mouth?

So, I'm thinking what can I do for a "first." What I come up with is that I ask the dentist and the lady that called me a big mouth if I could pray for them while I ride home. I don't remember ever asking my dentist and the tooth cleaning lady if I could pray for them. The dentist was very grateful and did have some things he wanted me to pray for as I ride home. He was very clear and specific. Laura would have loved his request. She is all about praying specifically. The tooth cleaning lady was not so clear. She had trouble coming up something. Maybe she was still dazed by my mouth full of teeth.
The thing I liked about today is that I was able to pray for someone that I may not have if I had not been thinking about a "first." That's kind of what I was hoping doing a year of firsts would do. I am asking myself questions that I might not normally ask. I am seeing opportunities to do things that I would not normally see. Now, I'm going to find a mirror and see about these teeth...
Smiling because of Jesus
3 things I thank God for today
1. A dentist that is caring and gentle
2. A car that has taken me on several long trips lately without breaking down
3. God's faithfulness
