Of course it is a joyous occasion, our Christ has risen from the tomb and ascended into heaven! He died on the cross for us, and boom, we get a free pass to heaven just because we believe in Him!
It is NOT a joyous occasion around here. My little peanut man fell today at his grandma's house and broke his front teeth. And busted his lips. And his gums are swollen. Right now I can't tell what the extent of the damage is/will be, but suffice it to say that both of his two front teeth are broken, one worse than the other, and his tooth beside one of his front teeth is broken too. :( Poor little angel.
I know that things could have been much worse than they are, and I know how blessed I am that it's just his baby teeth, but could you please pray for him anyway? I know he's in pain, for one thing, and for another, we don't have dental insurance, so could you please pray that it won't be a lot of money, whatever they choose to do for him? We'd appreciate it.
I wish it was me and not him. I feel so helpless, knowing he's in pain but not being able to do anything about it.
