When Is Going To The Dentist A Blessing?

When it is FREE!

We've submitted all of our medical questionnaires, along with immunization records for the six of us. We actually took a full day, Robert and I, and worked on nothing but. The next step is the Dental Health Questionnaire that must be filled out by a dentist including x-rays.

We don't have dental insurance . . . in fact, we never have had. I can't remember the last time I've been to a dentist, and none of the children have. But, along with God's blessing in this area and our being very thorough with brushing and flossing, we've had no need. Robert did have to undergo root canal, but that was in Lubbock, before we lived here.

So Robert called a dental office in the small town just north of us to get an estimate on an appointment. We are living very frugally right now and are focusing all the resources we can to the elimination of our debt. He was asked what the questionnaire was for. When Robert told the receptionist that it was for the IMB, she put him on hold, talked to the dentist and advised that it would all be free.

Through the good times, the bad times, and even through the ugly times God has always blessed us. How humbling it is that a God so great and so deserving of everything we have to give Him (and so much more) chooses to bless us again, and again, and again.

And just for fun . . . here's some pictures of teeth!

Isn't it amazing how God shows us how much He cares for us? He provided for you in a unique and specific way!
