long play days
summer swimming and
(coily twists added to the mix)
that had my daughter's hair almost permanently loc'ed
I had twisted it before I left town on business, only to return wondering...
How did you manage to get this tangled?
come have a seat...
bow your head...
as I moisturize and gently run my fingers through your hair
detangling with care
feeling each knot
and acknowledging it
causing it to slip out with minimal effort
saving almost all of the hair
(knowing that what refused to surrender to my gentle prod was already)
and needed to be placed to the side to be discarded
I'm finding that life is almost just like that at times
I have some knots refusing to surrender...
so I must be willing to have them removed and placed to the side
long work days
summer recreation and
(life's twists added to the mix)
the combination conspiring to permanently lock me into a situationthat I thought I had under wraps, only to look up and wonder...
How did I manage to get this tangled?
So I go back to what I've learned
take a seat...
bow my head...
trust as God moisturizes
allowing His hand to gently sweep over me
as He detangles with care
Next hair lesson... The Hair Dance
