Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.

~The Ocean Series~ Hair, The Beach, Salt Water and Freedom

Leave a comment


There is some irony here.  Why is it that when I am at the beach my hair gets kinkier, curlier and of course the frizz is at an all time high?

We sometimes spend a day at the beach and then go in to get ready to go out and eat.  I use to spend time doing my hair before we went out for that “picture perfect” meal outside near the sand so we could see the moon and hear the surf.SALTYHAIR.png

Time not well spent.  The minute I would walk out the door, my hair demanded its own way.  More curl, more frizz and more kink!  

And yet…..

At home I use “Sea Salt Spray” on my wet hair to get “ocean curls.”  WHAT?

When we have it, we don’t want it,  And when we want it, we don’t have it.  We are a silly, silly people.

Why can’t we just be content with what we have?  Why do we have to have something different?  Why do we never seem satisfied?1 Timothy 6_6-7

My hair is my hair.  I lose as much as I grow.  But it is still naturally frizzy, curly and kinky when left to its own devices.

And that is ok.  Either here or at the beach, I embrace my hair.  I embrace who God designed me to be.  

Gees, I can grab a hat or let it fly!  Either way I am reminded of the freedom I have in Christ.

And that is the best kind of freedom to have, on a beach with my frizz or in the middle of the land locked Midwest! And I can always grab a hat!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is 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, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~
