Midweek Moment: Aint Got Time For The Devil or A Mustache!

“Ouch! Help, I’m dying!!”  What you are about to read is a true story. (Well partly true)

 If it were not for the sake of looking like a wimp in front of all the “well to do”, much younger ladies gathered in the beauty shop, I would have screamed out, “Girlfriend you are KILLING me!” Just being candid, for the last six months or so I don’t know what is happening to my hormones.  I seem to be having these little, (how should I say this), “mini power surges”!  As a little extra added unwanted bonus, I am growing new hair. The bad thing is, it doesn’t want to come in on my thinning crown; instead it wants to protrude out of my chin and rest above my luscious, painted hot pink lips!

The secret is out. I now have a new monthly beauty ritual. My beautician Jamie takes this little wood stick applicator & spreads a sticky wax substance over my top lip and on the bottom of my chin. Following the application, she adds a strip of tape, presses it down and then begins to yanks it off with absolutely no warning! OUCH! The other day I had to run down the hall and chase after my head after she pulled it off. (I have been known to exaggerate a little )   A word of caution: NEVER sit through the procedure on a full bladder……. All that pain for a few little chin hairs and upper lip fuzz. I don’t even want to think about what could happen if she waxed a leg or even my arm pits! Well glory!! Isn’t it funny what we will do to keep those straggly little dark hairs from taking up residence on our face? You laugh if you want to, but honey I have to work at it. If the sun hits those things just right, YIKES I just might have a catastrophe.

Kind of reminds me of my sin life. I ain’t got time for no devil attacking at me and bringing me down through sin in my life. I have to wake up every morning determined and committed to fight off the fiery darts from creeping in. Gossip, jealousy, envy, disrespect to my spouse, if I am not careful it will try to protrude out of my heart just like those annoying chin hairs. That is why I have to make it a point to find time with God, study his word & pray daily for God to order my steps & my thoughts. I have to ask God to help me keep my heart in check. Is there anything that shouldn’t be there? If I allow that sin to enter in it will grow and try to take over my entire life. I don’t want to rationalize it or even get comfortable with it, until I don’t even recognize it as sin. Some days I just find myself crying out to God and confessing by saying, “Lord I royally blew it and I need you to forgive me.” There will be time when I have to get those big ole tweezers & pluck sin right out of my life.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

  1. I find getting my eyebrows and upper lip waxed very relaxing. I get very sleepy while there in the chair. I think it’s just the fact that sometimes it’s the only time I’ve had to sit down (without kids on my lap) all day…heck, probably all week!

  2. LOL! Getting facial hair removed is such an easy, inexpensive way to make ourselves feel better. I am having my removed with laser hair removal!

  3. I hate getting my eyebrows done-& can’t imagine having to do anywhere else EVER!! LOL I am a big WIMP when it comes to that!

  4. LOL – this is so funny! I don’t wax, I did the electrolysis thing years ago and it worked for me. But my girls just started waxing their eyebrows…and they will tell you – yes, it hurts! 🙂

  5. I don’t think that I want anything waxed after reading this – why do women have to endure all these painful beauty rituals. Yikes!

  6. Ouch! I just can’t do the waxing thing – I’ve tried but it hurts too badly! I use threading for my eyebrows and bleach on my face – you’re a brave, brave woman!

  7. I get a waxed lip too. It’s humiliating when those cute little Vietnamese girls ask me – “you want me do chin too?” because I like to think it’s just a few hairs on my lip, not a full man’s beard. sigh….
