Thank Goodness, I got my haircut today.
For some of you getting a haircut is probably not all that terribly exciting. But perhaps a few of you can relate to OH SWEET MERCY, THE PAMPERING.
I've always said that the only thing I really envy about Hollywood stars is that they have someone to wash and style their hair for them.
I would die from bliss.
And in knowing this, God mercifully chose not to make me a star.
Thank You and Amen.
In the peace and quiet (well, when the dryer wasn't going and the odd semi-rock soundtrack wasn't too loud) of the haircutting I had a great opportunity to reflect upon the fact that today is the last day of 2010, and tomorrow opens the door to yet another New Year.
2010 will certainly not go down as my all- time favorite, but Thank You and for Pete's Sake not the worst either.
I've mentioned before that I truly write this blog out of need. The need to rid my mind of all the troubles I fret about, the worries I carry with me, the thoughts of OH MY GOSH EVERYTHING IS JUST AWFUL that sometimes invade.
And while there have been a lot of storms this year, I can honestly say that God has used this blog and all of you who read it (and especially those that take your precious time to comment on posts) to remind me everyday of His constant provision of JOY AND PEACE, and by golly, just EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD.
So along with my Regular Yearly Resolutions (or RYR), (I can send you an annotated copy- they've been the same for the last 25 years or so...) I will add the following:
I will be Constantly Thankful for this little tiny blip on the internet I call my blog, and most especially for the faithful readers who continually bring me such Joy.
I love you, my Internet people...
Let's make it a great 2011.
