I thought I’d share something a little personal so you could get to know me a little better. I love to stop, be still, and appreciate what God has given us. I have all kinds of pics on my phone of these things. One of the most recent thing is this amazing sunset last night. Here is the picture without any filters, just a raw picture from my phone that Revyn took.
It was breath taking. Now as I type this it is sleeting and snowing outside. Which is a HUGE shocker for our area. We are always on the edge of these storms, except for once in a blue moon. As my daughter was wishing for a school delay or cancellation, it just kept coming down. The phone rang with one of those call out deals they do, and her wish was granted…….a 2 hour delay! So take the time to slow down and see God in the world. You never know what you might miss.
On another note, I thought I’d share a hairstyle change I did. What is it with us girls and our hair? I mean a new hairstyle is like buying a new house to us. It takes forever to take that plunge and change it up. I have curly hair that has changed so many times over the years. It morphs into all these different stages from awesome curls, to frizzy curls, to wavy gentle curls. I swear I have the incredible shrinking hair when the humidity gets high. Which is a bad thing to have where I live, because we usually have high humidity. It’s so bad that I can tell from inside my house whether or not it more humid than normal based on my hair. I mean I don’t even have to step outside. How’s that for a dew point monitor! So for years I’ve straightened my hair ever since the Chi was invented. That invention of the flat iron was life saving for me. However, my hair is thick and coarse so it took me about 25 minutes to achieve straight hair. Talk about a hot head and tired arms.
And yes I have lots of gray. When our son graduated from high school I decided no more coloring and highlighting. That gray had gotten so stubborn and was resisting color. I felt like I was in there coloring at least every 3 weeks. One time it actually had no color in 4 days. My hairstylist tried all sorts of things to get it to stay, but nothing really worked. So in 2012 I decided to go with what God gave me and embrace the gray! However, I just wasn’t ever ready to embrace the curly hair until this week. I’ve gotten so tired of straightening my hair that I decided to embrace my natural curls.
So what do ya think? I actually like it, and it takes no time to do my hair in the mornings now. It’s the same length as when I straightened it, so you can tell how much it shrinks up. Thus why I had the straightening marathon each morning. Now I’m glad I decided to embrace the natural curls that God gave me.
Have you tried a new hairstyle lately? Leave me a comment and tell me how it went.
