The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas

The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas
We are all like sea shells tossed about in rough waters and being re-shaped in wondrous ways. But have you ever contemplated the notion that sea shells have to complete their journey through the rough waters before they get to rest on the shore? Yeah, we are ALL like sea shells and Heaven is The Great Shore.

The Shaggy Dog with "Roots"

Greetings Everybody,

Just a few minutes ago, "The Love of My Life" made the mistake of "Questioning" my hair appointment today!

Now just so you get the picture let me give you the 411 on my hair right now.
I kind of look like a shaggy dog and my roots are about 2 and a half inches long.  

Normally I would never have let myself get like this, but money is NOT an unlimited resource and we have had some significant matters to attend to.

And I have been patiently making-do.

We bought tires for my son in laws truck.
We got him some new clothes for his new job.
We have bought groceries, and diapers, and formula for the kids.
We have given and given and given because there was great need.

We Firmly Believe in Blessing as We Have Been Blessed.

Believe me when I tell you that I Truly WANTED to do all of those things.
There is not one single drop of regret about any of the things I just listed.

But Today...well TODAY it's MY turn.
And I Have a Hair Appointment.
And it's going to be expensive.
That's just the way it is.

Yet, a few minutes ago, "The Love of My Life" asked me what was wrong with hair color that God gave me.

I couldn't believe he tried to Team-Tag God Almighty into his side of this issue.

I crisply told him that nothing was WRONG with the color God gave me, but that I FEEL BETTER in the color HE gave me when I was Younger.

(Meanwhile I am thinking "How Dare You Pull the GOD Card on Me!) 

Then I realized that this was The LOML gently trying to LIFE-COACH Me about Contentment...and him being no so subtle in complaining about the expense.

Talk about Poor Timing.

His LIFE-COACHING Attempt did NOT go over so well with me!!!

Sometimes a Woman's Gotta Do 
What A Woman's Gotta Do!

And Today is THE DAY.

Meanwhile he is Clueless about why I reacted so strongly lol.


Next time I should probably just tell him that I  "Need to Go Play Golf".

He would totally understand that lol.

God made Little Boys and Little Girls different in SOOO many ways. 


In Him,
