You Know It's Serious When . . .

My silver hairs are getting serious. Most of the time, I wear my hair down. My little silvers are mostly in the sides of my hair. I see them in the mornings when I'm getting ready for the day, but most people never see them.

The day before we left Texas, I went thrift store shopping with my pastor's wife, Mrs. JoAnn. My pastor's wife is one of the sweetest, most honest ladies around. If she can't say anything complimentary, she will usually not say anything at all. Rarely does she say nothing, however; she's very good at finding complimentary things to say. We were standing in the parking lot in the blazing Texas sun, getting ready to leave. My hair was pulled back (that heat!), so I turned my head toward the sun and told Mrs. JoAnn to take a look at all my silver hair. She immediately began to say, "Oh, you don't have any gray," but she stopped short. She took a look for a couple of seconds, and then said, "Well, it's going to be beautiful!" LOL You know it's getting serious when Mrs. JoAnn can't deny it, and instead accepts the fact and makes the best of it. So I guess it's official. I'm going . . . silver. Not gray. Silver. Yep.

  1. That was a cute post. I enjoyed it.

    I just noticed on your profile that you like the Rochesters. We LOVE the Rochesters. A lot of the songs that hubby and I sing in church come from them. LOL

    We try to go to their homecoming every year and I've had the privilege of knowing Becky since she and I were 14 and I was able to go to Kentucky with their family one summer. Although we don't keep in touch now, it's always good to see each other at their homecoming.

    How and when did you first hear of them?

  2. I first heard of the Rochesters when I was a little girl. They sang quite often at my church, Tabernacle Baptist in Greenville, SC - Dr. Harold Sightler was pastor. I'm not sure if they were members there or not, but I do remember loving it when they sang. The older kids were the only ones they had at that time. I'm around the same age as Brady, I think.

    Wes and I moved away in 1986, but my parents became good friends with the family. Brady has worked with them on a CD they made in the '90's, and he also taught my little brother to play the guitar. Our pastor in Texas heard of them and invited them to come to our church there around 2000, and I told them who my parents were and they recognized the name but didn't remember me.

    How neat that you got to travel with them! That would be exciting. They're a great family - still faithful to the Lord after many years of service. We have several of their CD's, my favorite of which is Ben's instrumental. My mom, brother, and sister sang "If You Only Knew" at my grandmother's funeral. I wasn't able to go, but I asked them if they would sing it. I just love that song!

  3. Well, every once in a while, I pull a silver hair out of my own head...and I have been since I was in my early 20's. I guess there isn't any middle of the road for me either.

  4. This was funny!! I get told all the time by my girls..."Momma!!!...Your hair is glistening!!" Yeah....I'm not going grey...mine is going WHITE!! But I have little wisps of it here and there..they are becoming more numerous by the week though. Today I got my hair trimmed and got all the color cut off that was left from the last time I colored my hair (years ago or so) and I told the girl who cut it that I'm getting natural highlights in my hair now...of the white kind. She just laughed!! How sweet to have a pastor's wife that looks for the kind statements to make...I should try that...LOL!! j/k I do make kind remarks...but some of the ladies I can't help but tease with...they are just like me though..so they tease first or definitely tease back with me.

  7. LOl! I've been going 'silver' since I was in my mid-20's! I must admit thought that I do color mine.

  8. I had to chuckle as I read of your silver threads. :-) Just a few hours ago I found a pure white hair right at the part on top. Lol. Last week I found a couple silvery strands near my temples. I guess it's inevitable now, so nothing to do but smile and remind ourselves that "Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life." Proverbs 16:31
