Not all angels look like the ones in a Christmas play.  Sometimes God’s Messengers look like turtles.

For many months now, I have been having a difficult time with various dental complications from Sjorgrens Syndrome.

I have a wonderful dentist, who is compassionate, skillful and never gives up.  But we have both agreed four more teeth will have to exit tomorrow.  Prayers appreciated.🙏🙏🙏

I still have not figured out why when I lost teeth as a little girl, I got money, but now when I lose teeth, no one gives me money.  I lose my teeth and money.😳

I have felt like I was climbing a steep mountain for quite awhile now and wondering when or whether I would ever get to the top.

This morning at the park, I saw a turtle inching his way up a steep concrete ledge.  He was going so slowly and the ledge was so narrow, I thought he might fall off or give up.  But there really seemed no good way for him to turn around.

Given my recent situation, I could relate.

But he did not fall off and he did not give up.  He stayed focused and kept moving.  And he reached the top.  When he did, he looked up, giving thanks to His Creator and settled in to enjoy his time in the sun.

I am slowly inching up my mountain, but I continue to climb, confident that The One Who created me will also protect me and has The Plan for my life.

 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!”

Jeremiah 29:11
