My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:2-4

Meet Winky

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a great day. I accidentally bit down on a cherry pit yesterday and was rewarded with the sickening crack of my lower left molar. A piece broke off. Not too much pain really. Unfortunately, it is a time of insurance change. We have been to the same dentist since Brian and I were teenagers!! We hated leaving him. So, like dummies, we put off finding a new dentist under this insurance. Now I can't get in until Tuesday, and who knows when the tooth will actually get fixed!

So, this is Winky. He is Madeleine's parakeet. He is 4. He has never said a word!! We try and try and try.

I made him some birdie samplers on plastic canvas. I think he loves them. ;) These are parts I used from freebies.

Have a most wonderful day in the Lord my new and old friends!

Still stitching and still praying,

sorry about the tooth. stinks leaving a doctor or dentist you have been going to for years. the health industry really needs a revamp. third world countries are run much better when it comes to health. USA is way down the list. the parakeet is so pretty

Margaret said...

Such a cute parakeet! Too bad he doesn't talk. But I love his birdie samplers on his cage! Sorry about your tooth, and I'm really sorry you had to switch dentists. Such a bummer! Hope you aren't in too much pain. Pretty flowers!

Really darling lil budgie, he's quite the sampler collector:) Tip: if tooth is a bit jagged/causing discomfort (can be very painful when constantly scraping against tongue or tender inner cheek), you can try covering tooth with a bit of dental wax from drug store (the kind used when wearing braces) until you get to dentist. Have a good weekend!

Beautiful flowers, and such a cute bird, I always had a bird in the house, but my last one Marty died and I got so upset my DH said no more.
Hope you get to the dentist soon, hugs.

So sorry to hear about 'that tooth', I hope you don't get any pain before you can get to the dentist. Enjoyed reading Proverbs 31, isn't that what we try to attain. Perhaps Winkie doesn't speak english! x

Sorry to hear about your tooth! Its always challenging to find any kind of health professional, especially one that makes you feel at ease.

Hmmm birds, not a big fan of them as pets. My Mum has a small parrot not a big fan of him.

Meari said...

What a cute bird :) I do hope you get your tooth fixed soon.
