"I thank… God every time I remember you...I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." (Philippians 1:3, 4:11)
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law…" (Galatians 5:22-23)
Author: Apostle Paul (New Testament, NIV
Just as she hated to be parted from any length of her hair, she felt this same sadness to be parted from any of her dear friends. Several of them would be leaving the country soon to share God’s Love (the Gospel) with people from all over the world. One friend was moving to Spain, and another friend was going back to Kenya etc. Korishka consoled herself with the thought that her trimmed hair would grow back stronger and fuller. The same is true of friendship. If a friendship can be maintained through a time of separation, this can enable the friendship to grow stronger and deeper (she hoped).. The longer a friendship is maintained the more special and valuable it becomes.
This is also true of a girl’s tresses. The longer her
hair grows - the more distinctive and treasured it becomes. Unfortunately
it is not unusual for a girl’s hair to get ‘stuck’ at a certain length
before it continues its downward course, and this can be sooo frustrating.
The same is true of life…Sometimes things just don’t go the way we hope
for or according to our plans. In order for a girl to really like her hair,
she has to first accept it as it is. If she doesn’t like her hair in its
natural state, she won’t necessarily like it when it’s longer. Perhaps
the same is true of life? Unless we can find our peace and joy in Him and
in our present situation… how can it be found in future circumstances…?
