my hair

"Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Luke 12:7

My hair has always been an issue for me starting from an early age. In pictures, I know what age I was just by the straightness (or lack there of) of my hair. I have naturally curly hair...and my parents thought it would be neat to give me perms on top of the natural curl. Oh my...the pictures still make everyone laugh. I'm not sure there was ever a happier girl than when I discovered the hair straightener. It revolutionized my hair. And then when the "CHI" came along...my life felt complete. 

I read this verse tonight and just cried...and then started laughing thinking about my hair. God knows every single strand. He knows me...every part of me. He knows when I'm in pain. He knows when I feel like giving up. Tonight, Chris is gone and Eliana has had a rough day...and I feel unbelievably lonely. Then, I opened up Jesus Calling and read this verse.  He knows I'm lonely. He knows every aching joint. He understands how opening my eyes in the morning feels like I've climbed a mountain some days. He knows the day I got this wretched disease and the day I will be healed. He knows how every part of this journey is going to be paid for. He knows who He is going to bring in my path to encourage me. He knows the struggle going on in my mind. So, guess what?! I'm not alone. I'm so thankful for that tonight. 

Love you all,

P.S. If my Gran-D read this post, she would definitely make sure to tell you she likes my hair curly! :)
