Hair-Less In Tennessee


Guess what my friends? I am hair-less, and I could care less!! I am no longer carrying this burden, it is gone. Praise God for setting me free. I am who I am, and who I am, is a pretty cool chick. As I stood looking in my bathroom mirror last night, my lovebug walked up behind me. He gently placed his arms around my waist, and said to me, "look at that amazing couple in the mirror." You know what? I did look at that amazing couple in the mirror, I took a very longgggggggggg look at that couple. That couple has been together for nearly 24 years. During those years, we have weathered many storms together. We have endured the battle of infertility, which eventually we lost, causing us the heartbreak of childlessness. We have taken care of loved ones, and then watched them as they slipped away. We have watched diabetes slowly destroy my body, but we refuse to let it win. We have watched thyroid disease destroy my hair. Through all of these events, and more, one thing has always remained, our love. We are united, together we are strong. It is in times of stress, that we shine. God blessed us when He put us together. So, from this moment on, hair, or no hair, I do not care. I am so much more than hair follicles, I am 1/2 of an amazing couple!!

There are a lot of women out there who have gorgeous heads of hair however, they don't have what you have. An amazing Lord and an adoring husband. You tell me, who has the greater loss, huh?

Marsha said...

You are beautiful inside and out, dear one! I'm so glad you have been set free.

Yes, you are-so much more than hair follicles,and you are one half of an amazing couple and a child of God and heir with Christ, daughter of the King. You are BEAUTIFUL! Fearfuly and wonderfully made! I am so so glad God gave you such a wonderful hubby.

Denise,

Praise the Lord! If I could sing I would break out in "you are so beautiful"!!

God bless you and your husband! Pray you are feeling better!

I will have to AMEN! what Edge said.
There are so many women living a shell of a life. Women who live with men who do not feel loved....maybe they aren't. They would give anything for their man to look adoringly into their eyes and tell them that they are the most important thing in their lives.
Or they think that if they do not keep their beauty that their husbands will turn them out or look elsewhere.
You are blessed girl.
Love you!

Hey, I have waist length hair and sometimes I wish I was hair-free!! So see, no more bad hair days to worry about, no more money spent on products that don't work...you are hair-free girl! Free to wear chic scarves, cute hats and have a loving hubby rub your head for you and tell you he loves you :) I agree with edge - I know MANY women out there with outward "beauty" who don't have the amazing heart you do, the faith you do, and the husband you do!! You have MORE of things you really need and less of things you don't...God has really blessed you!!!!!

Christa said...

I don't know you, but I've just gotta ask you: Do you want to be healed?

I KNOW how you can and be free of all this and have your hair back & your whole body restored!

It's not a gimmick. It's not a drug or new fad diet.

If you really, really want to know, please leave a comment at my site saying so & I will tell you. If you don't want to know, I won't bother you anymore.

Blessings,
Mrs. C.

What is hair anyway!! If all of us were bald then we would think people look funny with hair!! Don't worry about it like I hear you are now doing..Just enjoy your life and that you have a wonderful man to love you any way that you are...

Julie said...

I bawled!!! I bawled because of these beautiful words you wrote and shared with us:

"Through all of these events, and more, one thing has always remained, our love."

You're an inspiration, a gift, to all of us Denise!!

Laurie Ann said...

Denise, you have such a beautiful heart, and I know you radiate the beauty outside, as well. You are such a special and strong person. I so admire you and your lovebug. I think you're awesome. We battled one common battle, and lost it, too, but it's okay, because victory has come through the Lord for us!

My parents referred us to this site
tlsm.org The pastor is a healing pastor. Listen to Katlynn's story. It is his granddaughter who was in a car accident of which a severed brain stem was just one of the things that happened to her and he continued in faith and prayer and she was completely healed!! He has many, many testimonies of such miracles!!
After listening to these miracles and healings we were built up in our faith and have seen such things in our life. Our grandpa had a terminal illness and had about 2 more months to live. We made sure we were right with God and prayed believing (according to all the scriptures that the pastor gives) and on g'pa's next doc.'s visit, the doctors couldn't believe that it was gone and he was completely healed. Thank you Jesus!! I had a horrible, horrible toothache that was so sever that it kept me up all night & I didn't sleep. I asked my parents to pray for me & the pain immediately left!! Nothing else had even barely touched it and now Jesus has made me whole!!
There is so much I want to tell you, but you can find it all at his site. He uses God's word and makes it come alive and builds your faith. You can also call their ministry center and have them pray for you.
I know you want to be healed. I know you will be healed.
Waiting to hear of your healing!!
Blessings be multiplied to you!
Mrs. C.

Gretchen said...

You have endured much, but out of your childlessness, you have mothered many, and out of your hairlessness, God has shone you true beauty. The road is not easy, but He has never left you, my friend, and never will. Much, much love. gretchen

P.S. Thanks for the sweet calendar.
