This week is a picture of me - one of the few photos I'll ever use for WFW that I didn't actually capture - but I needed it for illustration. My friend Steve took this picture in December. Thanks Steve - and sorry Mr Nice Guy for cropping you OUT. Hope you can understand.
Ecclesiastes 7:13 - Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what He has made crooked?
Let me tell you - this past few days have not been very happy for me, for various reasons. And, it's not often that I come across something in the Bible that just MAKES ME GIGGLE! This verse did it - I KNEW I had to use it this week for my WFW post. When I read it, I immediately thought of my "CROOKED" hair and I couldn't stop laughing! Thanks God, for making me laugh.
I used to be unhappy with my hair... very unhappy. Even this week I caught myself grumbling about it because the humidity and the rain causes a very fuzzy effect on my naturally curly tresses, especially when I need a trim (and we all know how some of us Mom's tend to cut everyone else's hair, and neglect our own!) I've had my hair my WHOLE life. Kinda like most of you! It started out sort of just wavy, but with each child, my hair got curlier! (Good thing I stopped at four!)
Sometimes I ADORE having curly hair - and sometimes it feels like a curse. I have had several people ask if I've thought about straightening it. I do have a photo in my sidebar of my hair straightened. One of the 3 times I ever tried. Even when I use all those tools and products, it still wants to curl up, so it's a lot of work for nothing. God gave me my lifelong "perm" and it's not really my place to go around trying to improve on His good and perfect work now is it?
These past few years, I've allowed myself to voice a hearty THANK YOU! when people give me compliments. I also make sure that when complete strangers stop me to ask about my locks, that I give the glory where it is due. I always say, "God does my hair" because it's true. Sometimes I get weird looks, but I think it's a great way to share that God made me, and He knew what he was doing.
Now if I could just stop and look at all my other "problems" that way huh? Guess I've got some work to do!
