Over the last few days we took our entire family to the UAF campus downtown to have our teeth cleaned by students in their dental program. It was a very positive and economical experience and very helpful for our large family. Kate the young lady who cleaned my teeth (and Tony’s) did a great job. But what amused me was her enthusiasm. She genuinely loved teeth. She told me several things I never knew about teeth and was geniunely excited to clean my teeth. At the end of my visit I told her that she was in the right profession, I had never met anyone so passionate about teeth. While I can’t say in this case I get it, it’s fun to see passion in people. Just as I can spend hours engrossed in an old theology book written by a long dead author and walk away invigorated; she was thrilled to clean teeth. God wired each of us to fill a different niche in life. What is your niche? How has God wired you? Like Kate I hope you find your sweet spot of passion; it’s truly the best way to live.
Under His Mercy,
