The Tower of Pisa

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) I’ve had an interesting week. This Wednesday I ended up at the doctor’s office because I was having difficulty swallowing. Well a cotton swab latter and a “stick out your tongue” comment and the test is completed. Results come back –negative for strep. Yes! Nevertheless, I come home with a pack of antibiotics. Thursday morning I’m feeling better. No trouble swallowing. But what has grabbed my attention is a small white dot on my gum. Well, what could it be? Friday morning the white dot is present along with other irritation on my gum. I’ve been battling with a tooth that perhaps should have been gone two years ago! One phone call later and I’m headed to the dentist. I’ve been going to the same dentist for over 28 years.

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way."  (Psalm 37:23 ) Living in the New York has its variations of climate. Yesterday is snowed. It was not a lot but enough to cause trouble. The snow lingered after I got home. I watched it safely from my warm living room. This morning when I got up I noticed that the sidewalk outside my home was nice and clear. The path did not finish there, it lead right to the door of my dirty salt-covered vehicle. My husband is so good to me. He knows that the slightest slip could cause me to fall and get injured. My body has been ravished with Rheumatoid Arthritis and its a dainty walk for me in inclement weather. Well, praise God I arrived to the door of my vehicle safely. I could have chosen to arrive to my car a different way. But, I would have missed the level,  clear ground paved for me. As always my mind raced to the Scriptures I have buried in my heart.
