The Good the Gross and the Ugly!

Gross:I really do have a serious post for today but first can I share the most disgusting thing from today!? I went to the dentist for a cleaning. New dentist. Never been before. Simple cleaning. In, out, easy. I sat in my chair as he began the cleaning and as protocol states I began inspecting the ceiling for any distinguishing marks or features to hold my interest during the monotony. I found my little black spot almost immediately without much effort. It was in a little grate above my head which concealed the ductwork and A/C register in the ceiling.

"Wow that's interesting," I thought, "My little distraction spot is moving. What? I think I see... what are those? Antennae? Oh my mother of all disgusting... it's a HUGE ROACH!"

Yes ladies it was and a big boy! I had to sit there for another 30 minutes wondering to myself while my mouth was wide open below my big fella if he could escape from under that grate. He made many a good attempt, but Thank the Lord, he couldn't break free! It was so groos! Needless to say we'll be getting a new dentist!!!

Ugly: I need to have 3 wisdom teeth removed! I am NOT looking forward to that! Can someone say... Procrastination!? I plan on it!!!!

Good: National day of prayer was today and I felt so convicted about my duty to pray for our troops, our nation, and all nations..... consistently! I am reminded that it's the least I can do! Come to think of it, we have orders to pray continually with all kids of prayers and petitions (Eph 6:18). I realize I need to kick it up BIG TIME, and not just for the National Day of Prayer!!! I realize that if I want to share in Christ's love and His vision I can afford to offer up yet more time on my knees.

Jen, you used the right word, GROSS! I hate roaches of all bugs!
Sorry about your wisdom teeth, but I think it is not so bad. I had good results after having mine out, maybe you will too. ND of Prayer went through my heart as well. I am so thankful for much!
I need to schedule a time for a trim, does that sound good, maybe in the next week or two. Talk to you soon.

That is so gross! What would you have done if it had actually gotten out?

I had to have all four wisdom teeth surgically removed because they were causing major problems! It felt much better when they were gone!!

Reminds me of a song that says "Let us pray, let us pray, everywhere and every way. Every moment of the day is the right time. For the Father above, He is listening with love and He wants to answer us. Oh let us pray."
