Since my daughter was little we have talked about her cutting her very long hair off to donate to Locks for Love. She was always unable to even fathom such a thought! She loved her long hair and didn't want to give it up for all the tea in China! That was until this year.
I thought maybe she was having second thoughts when she was holding that beautiful pony tail in her hands -but she said "no, it's just grossing me out!". LOL - so that's the pained look on her face!
It got me thinking that we too are like her hair - here today and gone tomorrow. Life goes very quick. If we are not found in Him, then we too will be cut off. It's a precious time to be ready, to really receive this Gift during Advent like never before. He's asking you to give your personally precious gifts this Season too.
