braces {not what he wants} 

today, nick (my 14 yr. old son), gets his braces put on. 

to say the least, this is NOT what he wants. 

it’s hard to convince our children of things they “need” even though it’s not what they “want”. 

hard to convince them that they “will appreciate it later in life”. 

i remember when i got my braces put on.  i don’t remember hating it.  i just suffered through, like everyone else. 

knowing that today starts a process that will last at least a year, i pray he adjusts quickly & doesn’t feel self-conscious about them.  it’s hard enough being a teen, nowadays, let alone if you feel you stand out from the crowd. 

  • Dear God, “Bring your peace to Nick’s heart because a heart at peace gives life to the body.”  Amen  (Proverbs 14:30)
