Over the weekend I lost a filling out of my tooth. I know not the most exciting news to blog about but stick with me for a bit longer. So, yesterday I called to make an appointment and they were able to get me in at 8:30 this morning. Normally that time wouldn't work the best for me, but Joel is on vacation this week and it just happened that he was going to be around to watch the children.
I got to the dentist's office a little before my scheduled appointment, they took me right back and numbed me by 8:30. Then I sat and sat, for almost an hour. I was just slightly (and I do mean slightly here) perturbed at the amount of time I was waiting. Finally, he came in and began drilling. However, I felt that searing pain of a nerve ending being attacked. So, I was given another shot and waited some more. At last, my filling was in and I headed out the door to run a couple of errands.
Here I must digress a little, this morning my parents, aunt and uncle were placing my grandma in a nursing home. I had been praying for each of them and my grandma since I had awoke. As I finished my last errand I drove by them as they were heading to the nursing home. On impulse, I did a u-turn at Walgreens, and headed out to join them. When my mom saw me she grabbed a hold of me. She started crying, saying how much it meant to her to see me. I stayed an hour and helped place my grandma's belongings in her room.
If I hadn't lost my filling, if Joel hadn't been on vacation and if the dentist hadn't been behind schedule, I never would have seen my parents driving my grandma to the nursing home. It may not seem that amazing, but God's timing is perfect even in the little things. He knows when his children are hurting and need comfort.
