Hair or Not

Those who have known me through the years have seen a head full of thick hair transition into a balding one, with patchy,thin, and graying hair. These days my hair looks the same, whether I ride a rollercoaster, jog in heavy rain, or attend mydaughter’s wedding.

According to some sources, a person might have more than 100,000 hairs on their head, and lose between 50-100 strands of hair every day. Don’t worry, new hairs are constantly replacing those that have fallen out. (Not sure if that’strue in my head.)

It is said that the main thing about one’s hair is not how many there are or how cute they look, though that’s desirable, but how clean you keep your hair. Whatever!The Lord Jesus alludes to the hair on our heads while discussing human fears and God’s caring nature (Luke 12:7: Even the hairs on your head are counted. So don’t be afraid!). Maybe every time a hair falls from our heads, we’d be reminded of the God who notices even that, and that under such watchful care, we don’t have to be afraid.   –Jeba Moses
