I want to wish you all a very happy and grateful Thanksgiving week!
I had hoped to spend this day doing some Thanksgiving origin research followed with some type of encouraging message, but I ended up at the dentist office all day. So instead, please except a simple Thanksgiving greeting to you and yours.
It turns out that I have two teeth, side by side, that are both cracked and in need of crowns, but I do not have any nerve damage or infection. However….and here is my Thanksgiving spin….I am thankful that I at least have teeth. My childhood dentist insisted to my parents that I needed to plan on dentures for my 40th birthday.
Once I moved on to college in Tennessee, a dentist there told me that it was likely my birth mother took a commonly prescribed drug in 1962 for pregnant women, associated with antibiotics, but it is now known to cause teeth and bone degeneration in adulthood.
My current dentist has done a very welcoming job of preserving what he can and at the same time storing up a nice retirement for himself with revenue from crowns.
Sometime this week I will likely send out an email regarding our prayer ministry, because that has been on my heart of late. I am working on a new project, what I am calling a Matthew 7:7 Prayer Journal and will share more about that later. I am so grateful for our fellowship and our prayer support for one another, too.
A couple of items I want to mention…
• We have a new clock for the back wall at the Chapel. (That should mean that I will know what time it is so we have sufficient time in the Scripture.)
• Potluck this Sunday, December 1, 2019 and Frank is bringing his delicious brisket.
• For our Christmas Fellowship on December 22, 2019 at 5:00 PM at the Chapel we talked about doing the “dirty Santa” game differently, and here is a link to a video that tells the “Left/Right Story” that Janet had talked about: https://youtu.be/YIjeqQN2TPU.
