My niece, for years, had said "Aunt Di, get a straightening iron". Well, I didn't really understand how they worked and was scared of them. So, I procrastinated. I came up with every excuse under the sun. Then, the inevitable happened...........my trusty curling iron fried!
I was so troubled, what in the name of goodness was I going to do? Those hot rollers just made my hair balloon all over my head! Natural left me with frizzies that were uncontrollable. Blow drying straight was just too straight.
So, I started to look at irons. They can get extremely expensive, $100 or more. Frankly, I just cannot afford that and wouldn't give it even if I could. I was afraid of the cheap ones. So, I settled on one of the moderate priced ones and decided to take the plunge.
It lay on my bathroom vanity for a few days just waiting to be opened. Finally, I decided it was time to take the plunge. I opened the package, read the directions for use and decided I would give it a try. My hair was a couple days past my last shampoo so would have some natural oils built up for defense. So, I took the leap.
What in the name of all that is reasonable was I waiting for?! Now, the picture above was taken as I was driving to town on that afternoon. Clean hair would have yielded better results, and it was my first try, but 10 minutes in front of the mirror yielded that hair! I am converted! I am a believer! Katie, you were right! It was exceedingly simple, not one burn and 10 MINUTES, 10 MINUTES to do my hair! I could be a few years younger if I hadn't wasted all that time in front of the bathroom mirror doing my hair!
Aren't we sad beings? God gives us good minds and offers His help with our daily struggles, yet we often leave Him out of our daily decision-making processes. When will we learn to do it the easy way, God's way? Why are we so stubborn? God must get so disgusted with us and our pride!
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
