A couple of years ago I had a little hair
See, I have to occasionally get my roots lifted back to their natural color. In an effort to save money, I tried to do highlights on my hair at home, but....it did not work out very well.
I could not believe what I saw in the mirror!
It was a 911 situation. Seriously. I had to seek immediate help. I called a local beauty salon and made an appointment with the first person that
The level of humiliation that I felt walking into that salon is hard to describe. I can tell you this though, I went in wearing dark sunglasses and a hat. I would have made the appointment under an assumed name, but I obviously wasn't thinking clearly.
As I walked in, I was greeted by Melissa. She was the one assigned to take care of my

Melissa has been my stylist since that day.
God has used her to bless my life in so many ways.
When I leave her shop I feel beautiful on the outside, but even more so on the inside.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
I think she is right.
I will share more about Melissa and how God has used her to bless my life in future posts.
But for now, I will just show you how she blessed me yesterday.
I love me some blond highlights, and it's such a relief to not need dark glasses and a hat just to go out in public!
Thank you, Melissa. I love you, Friend!:)
