Do any of you recognize this “Farrah Fawcett” comb from the 70’s?
The old adage, they don’t make things like they used ta, still holds true. I bought this comb back around 1977- ish- give or take a year, when I had the “Farrah Farrah” fluffy, layered long hair look.
It worked for me. Not just the comb, but the hair style. Youthful, fun, wind in the hair flying in the air, like ya just don’t care! ~ good times ~ good memories and wonderful friends.
At one point in the early 80’s, I thought I lost this trusted comb. I had to succumb to buying a new one. One less sturdy, and yellow, (one of my least favorite colors). It just didn’t have the strength of my blue comb. (one of my favorite colors). Many months later, the blue comb came out of hiding; I don’t recall where it was located… but there was a bright ray of excitement when it surfaced. I could never get rid of this comb. It laid at the bottom of my treasure chest for years, when I decided to wear short hair. There was less tangling and need for such a big comb than in the Farrah days. I pulled this out of the chest the other day, and reminisced at those high school days, curling hair with girlfriends, the laughter, heartbreak and innocence.
This very many years later, I have decided to use it again, with medium length hair, it reminded me how life is when we trust in God.
God is the blue comb. Strong, mighty, unbreakable, and long lasting. Life, in its variables offers yellow combed seasons when we don’t feel so strong and secure.
I am glad I chose the “blue” combed lifestyle. Choosing to trust God during some difficult seasons in life helped me walk through it all. Endurance is key to this life. Never allowing the enemy to comb through our emotions and circumstances.
Be sure to hold on to God – he is a never ending help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1
Romans 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
2 Corinthians 1:6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.
2 Corinthians 6:4Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;
1 Timothy 6:11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
Colossians 1:11being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience
I write this story for you my friend. Never let go. God is with you. He is going to help – in the exact moment you need the answer, and when you release your arms to Him. He is a good good Father!
Father we thank you for memories that are sweet. Guide us when we feel lost, insecure and uncertain. We never want to let go of your grace, and knowledge that you will never let us fall too far you won’t save us!
