Nothing Really to Blog About...Loving My Hair and Thoughts for the Day

Plain and simple, I love my hair. Just twist it and let it go and flow.

*Be excited about your life, all day everyday, regardless of the situations you're facing. Encourage yourself to keep on and pursuing the desires of your heart.

*I love reading the Bridal Bliss articles on Essence. It's the loveliness, inspirational, keeping me expectant and overflowing with joy for that special day down the road. The story I read today made an important point....your mate is supposed to complement you, not complete you. Yes, indeed, that is the truth. He cannot feel those void places in you, only God can fill those cracks and crevices. He is the only one that can settle down and abide in your heart. (Ephesians 3:17-May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settled down, abide, make his permanent home in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love). His love is made complete in us (1 John 2:5, 4:12), and we just have to accept Him into our hearts. Just think of two complementary angles...they have to be at a certain degree in order to complement the other right? Yep, those angles have to be can't almost be 60 degrees. In order to be complete, you need to have your own identity-loving yourself and pursuing the plans God has for you. I believe those are the components ya need and he needs in order to be complementary.

*Being a lover of music, I enjoy listening to Instant Vintage by Raphael Saadiq (it's not his latest album, but it is funky, smooth, real and my album for the week). My favorite song from the album is Different Times. The lyrics are just right...."I told myself one day to fall on my knees and pray. I close my eyes and kept on pushing, just stopped looking, guess who showed up." Life cannot be lived without knowing Him. It simply doesn't work that way. God is all around us. He cares for you and me, loves you and me, wants the best for you and me, so make time everyday to say hi to the One who loves you without finding fault.

What A Man, What A Man, What a Mighty Good Man

During my quiet time, I read this article called Faith for the Man He'll Become. It is a must read! As a young woman, I envision this exemplar model of man I'm supposed to marry based on the excellent role models of men in my life and the high expectations I've set (hmm...the lovely list). Of course, we know young men out there have flaws and all just like we do. With that being said, we do need to be discerning of the relationships we partake in with young men. In having these relationships, whether it be friendships or courting, we have to understand that their progress to being potential husbands and fathers comes with growth and encouragement. I love how the article mentions that as young women we should be looking for someone who pursues a trajectory of godliness. His intentions should consist of efforts to follow the requirements of masculine servant leadership in the Bible. For example, he must be self-controlled, respectable, welcoming to others, and gentle, just to name a few (See 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Acts 6:3, Titus 1:6-9). Just know he is a work in progress, and he wants to be the mighty good man for his wife and children. If he is loving Jesus, he is willing to give up things that are not pleasing to God and striving towards dwelling with God forever. As young women in Christ, we just have to be prayerful and encouraging every step of the way.

Here's the fro-hawk I did for the Enchanted Evening with Maxwell in concert. I twisted my hair the night before in medium size plaits after washing and deep conditioning it. The day of I took the twists a loose and finger combed through them and used some clear Motion's leave in conditioner cream. Then, I parted a small portion from the top, and the rest of my hair was put back in a banana clip. I then created the hump in the front with bobby pins. I love it!

My Hair

I've been planning to try new hair do's, but I really haven't, but looking at all these natural hair blogs inspire me to share my tips on natural hair care and try some new things. There are so many things you can do with your natural hair ladies, just have to be creative! I'm trying to get my hair to get some more length (my hair reaches my clavicles), so keeping my hair in protective styles is a must. Well, here are a few looks I love to do, working my curls in updo's with bobby pins! Tomorrow, I shall try a frohawk for a concert I'm going excited!!!
