My Roots Are Showing!

Here’s the honest truth: I’m about 80% grey & I have to dye my hair every 6-7 weeks to maintain a youthful appearance. My hair stylist says that I’d age myself at least 10 years if I didn’t dye my hair & he’s probably right since he’s the hair expert & I’m not.
And some roots are good. For example, roots in the Bible can grow fruits & results that far exceed our natural abilities & strengths. I desperately need God’s help, intervention & wisdom to flow throughout my life to empower healthy fruit! Let’s allow our roots to sink deep into God rather than letting worry & the flesh cultivate the yucky fruit 🙂

dying my hair

Here’s the honest truth:  my hair is about 80% white.  I inherited the premature grey gene from my dad & discovered this with my first white hair when I was about 14 years old.  So lurking beneath the massively effective efforts of my amazing hair stylist are these grey roots that always seem to win over time.  I could be resentful of my genetic makeup, disappointed that the grey eventually always wins or pretend that I’m a different person wearing trendy sunglasses & sporting a skunk streak ,)

Here’s my takeaways on hair dye:

  • accept with joy how God has made you – fearfully & wonderfully made
  • Proverbs says that grey hair is a sign of wisdom – sounds like a good plan
  • better grey than nay (my dad was bald)

happy Monday to you! 🙂
