So, Holy Week is upon us and Easter will be here in a few days. It is a very exciting time in our home and in our church. I was pondering over Easter festivities last week and you know what stopped me dead in my tracks…MY HAIR! (I just want to clarify that I’ve had my Easter dress for a while now so I didn’t need to worry about that.)
Yes, my hair…
To blow out or not blow out?
To press or not press?
To rod set or not rod set?
And then it hit me…do I want to spend every Easter concerned about my hair? What if it rains (where I live, that is highly probably any day)?
We are serving during one of the services which means we have to be up and out of the house like 30 minutes earlier. So, that means either less sleep or less time on my hair….let’s be real, it means less sleep.
Are you seeing my problem? While I loooove my hair and loooove looking really cute on Easter my hair should not stop this show. In fact, it shouldn’t even stop on me in my tracks like it does.
I know where this notion comes from. I don’t know about you but when I was a little girl, Easter was special because I got a special dress and special hair. That special hair took special time and it was painful…physically and emotionally. You get kept up past your bed time and woken up early only to be burned on your ear with a hot comb or curling iron (or both) and then comforted with only one piece what the Easter Bunny brought you and tell me you aren’t scarred for life.
I digress…the moral of the story…my hair, while looking fab and appealing, should not be my main concern during Holy Week. I should be focused on serving, repentance, forgiveness and God’s word.
So, I did some marley twists, medium size and the same install method and products used here in my Havana Twist tutorial. I will rod set the ends the Saturday before Easter
I’ll wake up early Easter morning with joy in my heart to serve not anxiety because of the humidity and I’m gonna having to change my hair plan.
