So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that’s coming when Jesus arrives. Don’t lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing.
1 Peter 1:13
Yesterday marked a milestone in my life, but not one I’m thrilled to commemorate: I had my first cavity filled.
All these years, I go to the dentist every 6 months, they look in my mouth, exclaim over how lovely my teeth are, clean them, and send me on my way. Sometimes they commend me for my excellent flossing, despite the fact I’ve never been better than an irregular flosser, at best. (Interesting note: Pregnancy can have strange effects on your teeth and gums, so dental care is extra-important during that time; so I’ve had to become more consistent with flossing — probably not a bad habit to establish anyway.)
