After fretting over the recent departure of my hairstylist, I got an e-mail reminder yesterday of an upcoming appointment for today. I really like those e-mail reminders - especially when I keep misplacing those little appointment cards. My mind began to panic because (a) I didn't have a sitter lined up, (b) this person definitely wasn't Michael and (c) what if she screwed up my hair and I hated it? I'm such a worry wart sometimes. As of this morning, I still didn't know what I was going to do.
So, I've been studying John Ortberg's The Life You've Always Wanted and this week's chapter is on prayer. One of the items that struck me the most was a section on simple prayer. In my own words, I summarize it as telling God what's on your mind even if it seems selfish. Guess what I did? Yep! And you know what? I got a good haircut and my two kids sat on the couch like angels with nary a peep between the two (I'm sure the girl thought I had drugged them). Not only that, this new girl is making some nice changes to the salon - including creating a children's play area in what is hopefully the near future.
The moral of this little rambling is (a) don't fret over change and (b) take it to God, no matter how small or insignificant it seems.
