Smile big

God has provided for us in so many ways. As Abby's mouth continued to get worse, we stumbled upon a different dentist. This young dentist helped us heal the infection and then pulled the third tooth that had been damaged. Abby was quite nervous about having the tooth pulled, but the dentist was so gentle that Abby never felt a thing! She was so pleased with her first trip to the dentist . . . even if it meant have 3 front teeth missing!

Sorry, no fireworks!

An American holiday . . we almost forgot. How quickly God can help the familiar become distant and the here and now become a reality.
Abby's mouth continues to have problems. She's developed an infection and continually runs a low grade fever. We are asking God for guidance; see a new dentist, keep the same one, or wait a little longer. We're just not sure what to do.
On a happy note, the house is getting unpacked. We feel so privileged with the home God has provided. The girls love the yard and the space is incredible! What a blessing!

Feeling unsettled

Have you ever felt that Satan is unhappy about the current events?
The first 24 hours up here in Richards Bay have been incredible . . in a negative sort of way. To God be the glory for the trials, it will strengthen and help me rest in Him. Might as well start off our time in Richards Bay on the right foot . . completely dependant on God!
None of us feel very well, the day has been very cold and rainy, and Abby had a horrible accident. She slipped on a chair and fell face first on the tile. There was blood everywhere! Only after Henry came out to see what was happening did he see the 2 teeth lying on the floor. She had completely knocked out 2 front teeth, pushed back a third tooth, and was in so much pain. My heart just ached for her!
We'll look things over in the morning and take her to a dentist.
