Yesterday I spent the morning at the dentist.

Again. Receiving my fifth crown. <sigh>

I have so many crowns I should be queen by now. 

But, in fact, I’m a princess. The adopted daughter of King Jesus.  

That’s a mighty high station to have attained for someone not of noble birth. It’s also a reputation I need to seek daily to live up to.  

I’m grateful for our medical technology that has advanced to the point where a tooth can be saved; a smile preserved; function restored. Now, every time I brush and floss; gargle and check, I will have one more reminder that I am the daughter of the King of the universe.  

One more reminder that Jesus died to make it so.  

One more reminder that I have the best reason in heaven and on earth to smile. I am loved and treasured. 

And so are you.

PRAYER: Thank you Father God for adopting me into your family. Thank you for giving me real and eternal reason to smile. Help me live this one and only earthly life for your purpose and for your glory—today and every day. Amen.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? What daily reminder do you look to that you have been adopted into the family of God?

Going to the dentist is just about at the top of my "HATE to do" list. Thank you for the new perspective. :/
