Are you really free?
My ideas about freedom have changed. Once I thought if I kept the apostolic christian church of america's rules about wearing a bun in my head, and (well clearly I didn't follow their no bangs rule : ) but I thought that free'd me up from being a "friend of the world".
The only bible verse about hair in the bible or one of the very few, maybe there's another?
1 Timothy 2:9 "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame facedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;" Don't have braided hair and that is it!
Though I'm certain there has to be "mercy of god" towards african american's braided hair because, if they keep their hair natural it needs to be braided in many cases. (if their hair wasn't braided it would likely dreadlock...........yes I have experience with this type of hair).
So lately I been wearing a wig, I felt trapped by the bun thing............instead of free I was feeling unfree. Or maybe unfree????????? I didn't like the whiff of maybe no free--edness.
I think this crazy hairdo actually helps motivate me to dress modest (well most girls myself included wouldn't want to be thought of as a ----------------- insert street worker word here)
