A Devotion For Today

The Deaconess at our church gave me a devotional book for those with cancer, so you'll see how this particular one pertains to me exactly today. 

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today." So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "H-M-M, " she said, "I think I'll wear my hair in pigtails today." So she did and she had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "Today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had another great day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.... "YEAH!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"
Yes, my hair is falling out....but no, I won't shave my head. I'm not sure why. I don't think people notice my thinning hair right now, unless I point it I won't....wait, I just did. 
I worked hard to get some hair....a year ago it was starting to grow and I was proud to show off my very short 'do'. I've had it cut twice (I decided to keep it short).

This woman saw the blessings and not the burdens in her situation, we should all be like that!
To sum up Matthew 6: 25-34 Jesus tells us not to worry that the Father gives us all we need. He even takes care of the birds in the air.....He will surely take care of us. Yup, I need to remember this. 
Hope you are having a blessed Easter Weekend!
