A friend of mine is chronicling her battle with cancer on her blog, and it is just awe inspiring. I have to share this except from her post about losing her hair…I feel like it is a message for every girl, with or without her hair…
“Today, as I drove through the entrance, a shower of pink blossoms was raining down as the trees were losing their glory of pink petals. I thought it rather fitting that God should align my hair falling with those pink petals falling, too. Beans took note then laid herself down on the seat and stared at me all the way to the vet’s office.
And so, here I am. I find myself confident in God and at the same time somewhat exposed. I was way more confident about this day coming and moving through it three weeks ago than I am today. But, I will get through it.
And, this time next year, when those cherry trees are filled with pink-petaled blossoms, I’ll have my own hair back on my head and I will stand under the falling blossoms and smile at God’s goodness with my hands raised to Him!
It’s just hair, Amy. It’s just hair.
So, where do I draw MY strength? It’s not from having my own hair beautifully styled. Nope. My strength comes from God Who has reminded me today of this passage in Luke 12:5-8.
