My older sister Lauree and I briefly shared an upstairs apartment over a Chittenango, NY furniture store. Looking back, I realize what a cozy corner we claimed. It had a small kitchen, separate dining room, bedroom, storage room that served as a guest room, and living room with a picturesque view of Main Street in the village. While there, Lauree and I played the role of hosts to our family’s Thanksgiving dinner.
Now, for my dinner dilemma… A few days earlier, I had a tooth extracted. That is bad enough, but the occurrence had an unexpected complication. I had a dry socket and excruciating dental pain. I sat at the table with my Mom and Dad, older sister Lauree, younger sister and brother, Gayla, and Gary. I watched them eat one of the most anticipated family meals of the year. I wreathed in pain. Thankfully, following our meal, I saw our family dentist for repacking and medication.
“No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18 Living Bible).”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
