The first time I looked in the mirror and saw gray hairs, my heart literally jumped. It was such a shock to face the reality that I was getting older. So I covered it up with a box from the store.
I have since gotten older and, I hope, a little wiser and now I leave the covering-up to the professionals at my favorite salon who know what they are doing. The truth is, I have no idea of the real color of my hair anymore, and to be honest, I have no desire to find out.
Last night, as I read this week's homework from Beth Moore's book So Long Insecurity, this verse hit home with me and wrapped itself around my heart.
"Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I made you and will take care of you. I will carry you and save you." Isaiah 46:4 NCV
Here's to aging gracefully and to resting and trusting in His care!
