mirror, mirror

I definitely don’t have a problem leaving the house without make-up or a shower. Because of this, I wouldn’t classify myself as vain.  However, going without shampoo has made me realize that I have at least some degree of vanity going on.  I am very aware of my hair these days and catch myself wondering if people are staring at it.  Yeah, that’s kind of vain.

Yesterday afternoon we attended a Christmas Eve service.  While I could wear a beanie to this church, I really didn’t want to.  After rinsing and drying my hair, I put hot rollers in it.  I was surprised by how well it turned out.  Despite this, I felt very self-conscious of it.  Some of the curl was still there when I woke up this morning but I won’t be showing any of our Christmas morning photos around town.  The back of my head seems very oily still, more so than the front now.

I’m sticking this out.  If I use shampoo now, I’ll have to start again.  In the meantime, I’ll turn my vanity over to the Lord.  His opinion of me is the only one that matters anyway.
