For Today…November 26, 2008

Dear Lord,

I bring you my shortcomings…Lord, You know I hate it when I let my feelings get ‘hurt.’ You say in Your Word that it is an honor to overlook an offense, to be slow to anger, and to be patient. I especially desire to honor you in my closest life relationships, with those who know me the best.

I bring you my worship and praise…that with You there is forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 1:7). When I look to You, for forgiveness, for your grace, and for sanctification, my heart is light!

I bring you my prayer… Please forgive me, Lord, when I act as if I sanctify myself by my own works, when it is Your grace I need, not only for salvation, but for sanctification as well.

You spoke to me…in the book of Esther recently. When Esther is faced with danger if she does the right thing, her cousin Mordecai encourages her, saying, ‘Who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?’ (Esther 4:14b). We each have our own challenges and calls to duty, custom made for us by the Lord. In whatever situation I find myself, I will be brave and faithful, by God’s grace, to do the right thing.

Dental Poetry

This is my first limerick written in response to the prompt given at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. Please play along, if you are so inclined!

 

The dentist will tell you to floss

But why listen? He’s not your boss.

If you don’t mind decay

You can have it your way;

Your wallet and mouth bear the loss.

 

Here is my haiku, written to the same prompt:

 

Maligned profession:

The doctor of dentistry

Sees nervous patients.
