Today was a big day for me! I got braces, as I may have possibly mentioned before… Anyway, it was an interesting process of cleaning my teeth really thoroughly, removing the spacers, applying disgusting glue, putting the brackets on, and basically wiring them together. They actually only did my uppers today because they are so much worse than the lowers and therefore need more work. It does hurt, but as long as I keep up with the Ibuprofen for a few days, it won’t be that bad.
I think there’s a line we should be careful of between taking care of ourselves, like the Bible tells us, and being overly concerned about outward appearances. What matters when it comes down to it isn’t how straight my teeth are, but if my heart is in the right place. I’m on my way to straight teeth, and I’ve been working on the heart thing ❤
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. -1 Corinthians 6:19-20, KJV
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. -Philippians 2:3, KJV
