Have to Scratch it! right?


My hair is new color.... again.

Many of you have commented on the cool colors
and funky highlights I've been sportn' over the
past few years. Those are all the creative results
of my friend, Ginger. All her ideas!
























Well, yesterday my hair became "Black Cherry!"
Ginger calls it by numbers & letters... but it's
black cherry to you & me.
(it's hard to see the color in this pic)

I love change.
I crave it.
If anything is the same for too long I'm restless
and frustrated.

So I like my new color.
But ... it itches!!! Yeah, itches! Like mad!!!!


For the first several days after a new color,
at any given moment I can drop what I'm doing
and attack my poor colored scalp with ten vicious
fingernails that scratch the bah-gee-bers outa my head!!!

Life is like my hair color.

I love change.
I crave it.
If anything is the same for too long I'm restless and frustrated.

Jesus desires change in us.
But change is uncomfortable.
It doesn't always feel good.
It's itchy...
But it's better.

My life hangs in the middle of the old the new right now.
The old is no longer a possibility.
The new is uncomfortable...
and quite honestly-
it's pretty much invisible right now... to MY eyes.

My life is itchy.
Some moments I'm overcome with extreme itching,
and I must decide if
I'll give in to extreme temptations of un-mannered scratching
or simply trust The One who created
all this color & change in my life.

I will continue to choose to trust JESUS.
He's the ONE (the only one) who knows what' s going
on anyway.
And it's beautiful.
Colorful.
and worth the uncomfortable, itchy moments.
