The Hairs on My Head

Two years ago it was confirmed that I had lost over one-third of my hair.  My friend has been doing my hair for over ten years.  “Good thing you started out with a lot of it!”

This statement was not lost on me. And quite frankly, I had emotional issues losing it. I was able to put it in perspective when I stopped to think about those friends who have lost all their hair due to chemo treatments. What right did I have to whine?

But I will willingly admit, I had to refocus perspective many times. I understand just a tiny bit how traumatic it is for a woman. Now my hair comes and goes, depending on the hormonal cycle taking over my body.  Yes, that is what I said….sometimes ten weeks between cut/color and sometimes barely five!

Luke 12_6-7

 

I had to laugh when I was reminded of this scripture.   I have kept the Father pretty busy the last few years.

And yet He has numbered them all.

This tells me that God cares about even the little details in my life. This tells me that I am important to Him. This tells me that if He knows the number of hairs on my silly head day to day….He loves me more than I can even fathom.

I am overwhelmed by that.

God Almighty, the creator of the heavens and the earth, who doesn’t even forget the sparrows….knows all about me. He hurts when I hurt….He gets me. Better than anyone.

Friends, that should bring you comfort. YOU are loved by our Father. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of that.

I quit counting the hairs I lost…glad HE didn’t and He never will!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
