Drilling for silver

I think I must have the best Dentist in the world. That's right ladies and gentlemen I did indeed say Dentest with kind sentiments in the same sentence. If he's not THE best then he is definetely in the top 10. Yesterday I had a dentist appointment to get a cavety taken care of. Now I already have a considerable number of fillings, but so far the teeth are holding together. Which is a good thing because I think my kids believe they are going to be able to spend some kind if inheritence before they go to college. Now this cavity, or I should say cavities as it was in between two teeth, had been noticable since at least last August when it was spotted during a routine exam. To make a long story short I kept having to reschedule the appointment to have it taken care of - and it was not because I was avoiding having the teeth drilled either. Anyway, I showed up a little late but I was ushered right to the chair and everything was ready. Now, because a drill on teeth is involved he felt obligated to give me a shot of pain killer. Usually a needle in the mouth! No way, but this guys gives the best shots. The only thing I felt was preasure on the jaw bone. As the lips and tongue turned to cotton we talked... then he gets down to business. A little pain on the drill contact. nothing to curl the toes, but it's there - so shot # 2 and I didn't even feel it. You get the idea. 20 minutes later I am on my way home - and this morning I feel no different than I did yesterday. The guys is simply amazing. Well, that's all I have for today. :) Verse for today: Psalm 61:1-4, esv Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to youwhen my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
