It just came to mind because today brought to mind some of the things that may or may not need to be done and the cost of such things.
I know that God created each day fresh and new. And He can help us make the decisions we need to make.
This is God's day, not the orthodontist's, or optometrist's, or the oral surgeon's, or the doctor's. I can only depend on God to give me the straight forward truth and answers. These folks have knowledge beyond my own, but God has the answers I need.
My day wasn't really fowled up, but it just hit me in the last hour or so all that is going on here. I got concerned and then realized that I need to give it back to God because he has every answer, even for every day decisions like the ones we need to make.

I explained some of it to my hubby whom I thought would say "No way!" He didn't say much. I think he needs to mull it over for a while too.
So the next adventure was to the Drumming School. My BIL has offered to pay for lessons for our son. I couldn't pass up an offer like that so we went to check the place out. It all seemed okay and we signed up for a lesson for next Monday. This is a good thing after this morning's news.
Of course we couldn't find the freeway on the way back.
Next up is my appointment tomorrow to get a molar pulled. I'm crying already because I already had the same one on the other side of my mouth pulled. I'll be missing two bottom major chewing surfaces. Oh dear, will I have to be on soft foods for the rest of my life? No, I'll be fine.
I just feel like things are getting away from me. I also need stronger glasses which I won't wear full time because I'm
