When Even Your Messy Bun Looks Bad

With no time, energy or strength for a shampoo this morning, it was gonna be a cute little messy bun kind of a day…for church. After a few attempts at a usually acceptable updo, I had to settle for less. Living in Asheville is cool and I love that most anything I wear…just works. And hairstyles often look like…’well that just happened’!

But I couldn’t help thinking that we’re still fairly new to this church and the only one there (besides my family) who knows why I might arrive a little disheveled is my doctor who attends there. And I was reminded of a great video description, written and spoken by the woman who came up with the Spoon Theory, who is herself…a Spoonie.  I’d already used up at least five ‘spoons’ showering, dressing and raising my arms several times to make a bedhead look okay even in this town.

So I hope you’ll watch this for greater awareness of lives around you who may suffer with ‘silent’ illnesses. I don’t have lupus like Christine. And while fibromyalgia and RA have defined my physical abilities for several years, it’s been my faith in God that has sustained me. Calling on the Name of Jesus has brought me through many dark and scary nights to His mercies that are new every morning!

And then walk with me on hinds’ feet…treadin’ on high places! (Habakkuk 3:19)

About treadin' on high

I have made some very bad choices in my lifetime and those choices took me to some places I had no business going. In January of '94, I became a new creature in Christ. And I have learned no matter what I'm going thru, as long as it is God's will, it's far better than one second of my own! He has a plan and I desire more than anything to be a part of it. I am.....always seeking truth!
