Crown Of Wonders

My teeth are cracking.  I got some lame-o fillings when I was in high school, and for some reason they are cracking up my teeth.  I crack myself up…


I had to get one of the old fillings dug  out this week, and a crown put on the bad tooth.  As the nice (I say nice because he didn’t hurt me one bit) dentist was drilling and scraping away, he said things like, “Oh my, and hmmm”.  Not very encouraging.

April 046They took this 3D image of my tooth and emailed it somewhere, and magically got directions for making the mold a few minutes later.  Pretty amazing stuff.

Before he put the new crown on, he said that because of the cracks around the old filling, there was lots of decay in the tooth.  This is when he informed me about  my other teeth cracking.  Drat.

The whole procedure was completely painless, due to the long-as-my-arm shot(s) they put into my gums.  I left feeling great, went to my van and realized my keys were locked inside, and I was on the outside.  Double Drat.

I called my faithful friend Jeanna Tripp, and while she was on her way over to rescue me, I thought I’d read my YouVersion Bible plan reading for the day.  No kidding, this is what I read:

A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. ~Proverbs 12:4

Funny as it was, it caused me to stop in my tracks and take a 3D image of my soul.  I am glad I don’t have to share that picture on my blog, because I think there might be more decay than I thought there was.

I’m glad God showed me this verse.  I’m glad He has a sense of humor, and I am glad my tooth is fixed.  Now on to the rest of me…
