“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
(Psalm 34:18 NIV)
Something was wrong with an old crown on a back tooth. A sharp edge was poking into my cheek. The irritation distracted me from routine tasks and absorbed my thoughts. I googled “what to do about sharp edges on teeth.” It was suggested I smooth it with a nail file. I tried that with little luck, since the crown was at least thirty years old and crafted out of metal, not softer porcelain.
