My son just woke up with the biggest cow lick you’ve ever seen.

I have NO CLUE how I’m going to get this one down for school today and all I can think of is whether or not it’s okay to “pray” about hair or not because this one is a doozy.

My little one has been prone to cow licks since birth, but it doesn’t help that he “twirls” his hair a lot either. Why he does this I don’t know but it’s always been somewhat of a security blanket—the hair twirling. This leaves him with the biggest cowlicks, though and sometimes if he sleeps on his head just right they become massive. I’m talking Alfalfa massive and then some. They would actually knock Alfalfa out of the park.

I worry all the time about him getting made fun of at school but this morning I realized if there is anything I could pray about it’s just that! Instead of praying for “good hair” I’ve decided instead to give it all to God and pray that my son has a good day at school. There. Problem solved. But…

Easier said than done I know…do you often worry about something even after you’ve prayed about it?

I have many times. I think it comes with my maturity as a Christian as I know that each and every day my faithfulness grows stronger. But for now, I guess sometimes it helps to do a self inventory and to realize this bad habit, (worrying over prayers already said), because they are simply without just cause. There are many times though that I have anxiety over seemingly nothing at all.

This is when I turn to God. I ask him to release my inner thoughts and demons that keep me from living a peaceful, happy and free life and he always obliges. The constant reminders to do this however, are only human. It’s something I need to work on. We are not perfect, nor should we try to be. But with God’s help we can continue on with our day without as much turmoil.

On this earth, all we need is love. Because God is love. And Amen to that! Bad hair or not, He loves us and wants us to be happy and not concern ourselves with things that are so undeserving.

“Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another” 1 Peter 5:5

  1. I have noticed him twisting his hair. It is usually during circle time. None of the kids have ever said a word about it. I know it’s easier said than done, but try not to worry about it! He is a good kid and seems to be on track with his learning. You are a great mother and he is a great kid! 🙂
