Hair Care 101; My Hair Story Part 7

We left off in Part 6 , where I had gotten my first perm in 2005. My hair was still full and lovely UNTIL we moved from Alaska to Washington. In WA, we lived in a place that had well water (nothing wrong with that) BUT the water had very high levels of iron, it was even orange and would stain our toilet, sink and tub within a day. My daughter's hair even got an orange tint. My hair became very, very thin and so did my daughter's. At first I had thought it was my health because I had some severe health issues with my heart and liver in Alaska and upon arriving in WA that caused my hair to fall out in the front a little, as you can see below in the photo the bare patch in the front . However, seeing what it did to my daughter's hair too and reading about how heavy iron levels in your water damages your hair and its irreversible.....made me scared! So I started to wash my hair with distilled water and that was a task! I ended up going back to the shower head to wash

I've Got My Mind Made Up

This is actually some snippets from a sermon I listened to on the internet, just took some highlights from what the minister had said: My mind is made up, my face is set. My gait is fast, my goal is Heaven. The road is narrow, the way sometimes is rough. My companions sometimes are few, but my guide is reliable and my mission is clear! Then he went on to say as "your Pastor" and as a Christian: I can not be bought I will not be compromised I will not detour I will not be lured away I will not be deluded I will not be delayed I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice because I'm too close to Heaven. I can't hesitate in the face of adversity I can't negotiate at the table of the enemy I can't ponder at the pool of popularity I can't meander in a maze of mediocrity I'm not going to GIVE UP I'm not going to SHUT UP I'm not going to LET UP I'm not going to SLOW UP Until I'm preached up, payed up, prayed up, and st

Hair Care 101; My Hair Story Part 7

We left off in Part 6 , with my hair being at its longest ( 50 inches ) and very healthy. Enter: Stupidity!! I was tired of straight hair, tired of curling it if I wanted curl and yada yada yada. ( Wish I could go back in time but I can't! ). So I got a perm (2005). I figured it was going to be great, I would have curly hair all the time and could straighten it if I wanted to. It was nice in the beginning and I loved it: I had a lot of breakage with my perm, especially along the hairline. Although I didn't lose any length ( yet ), it was coming as I soon found out. Here is another photo a few months after I had gotten my perm and still loving it: It was easy to fix, I would just wash and gel and let it air dry. I still did not use a blow dryer .

What the Great Commission is NOT

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15) The Lord Jesus gave this commission to His disciples after His resurrection and prior to His ascension to the third heaven. The command is to "Preach the gospel." The verb "preach" means to herald the message. It is the same word found in 2 Timothy 4:2--"Preach the Word." In ancient times momentous messages were communicated by a herald. This was the King's personal messenger who would cry out the king's message as the people in the town would assemble together eager to hear the latest news. The herald would not give his own message and he would certainly not give his own views and opinions. He would simply give the King’s message word for word. He would not interpret the message. It made no difference whether the herald liked the message or did not like the message, he had to faithfully deliver it. He did not debate with people. He di

The Advantages of Pleasing God Rather than Men

1. If you seek first to please God and are satisfied therein, you have but one to please instead of multitudes; and a multitude of masters are hardlier pleased than one. 2. And it is one that putteth upon you nothing that is unreasonable, for quantity or quality. 3. And one that is perfectly wise and good, not liable to misunderstand your case and actions. 4. And one that is most holy, and is not pleased in iniquity or dishonesty. 5. And he is one that is impartial and most just, and is no respecter of persons, Acts x. 34. 6. And he is one that is a competent judge, that hath fitness and authority, and is acquainted with your hearts, and every circumstance and reason of your actions. 7. And he is one that perfectly agreeth with himself, and putteth you not upon contradictions or impossibilities. 8. And he is one that is constant and unchangeable; and is not pleased with one thing to-day, and another contrary to-morrow; nor with one person this year, whom he will be weary
