My Son Found God In His Teeth...

Obviously, I've been a terrible blogger... as it's been 2 months since my last entry.  I've had some great ideas, but I've let myself be distracted with other stuff.  Nothing more "important" or anything - just stuff.  

But I wanted to share with you an ongoing story my 8-year old has been telling me.  I think it shows how God can speak to us in "everyday, ordinary places."  Luke started his musings after a standard trip to the dentist.  The next morning, he says "Whenever we get a cavity, it's like when we sin against God.  The cavity just grows and grows with our bigger sins.  Then when we brush our teeth or go to the dentist and have our teeth all fixed up, it's like God's grace - when He forgives our sins... and our teeth are nice and clean again."

They say God speaks to us in mysterious ways.... I don't feel inspired at the dentist, myself.  I feel tense, grumpy, and sore!  But my sweet son saw a link to God's grace with the swipe of the dentist's toothbrush; the dentist's chair is certainly an everyday, ordinary place.

And that's what this blog is really all about.
Keep brushing,

That is a remarkable story, wow the insight that little boy saw and shared. It is amazing how true that is and that an 8 year old boy could relate something spiritual to his dental trip.

Never thought I find a way to link God to the dentist but; Good job Luke. (LoL)
