The Haircut

So, I gave my husband a haircut. And, in the process of doing that, I had to take a hair sample from the back of his neck, but it was hard to get enough hair. He has short hair. I changed the length of the clippers, and while thinking about the hair sample that was needed and not really hearing what he said to me, I sorta clipped a shorter version of a haircut up the side of his head, whoops! Needless to say, it looked really funny. I tried not to laugh, because I was feeling pitiful about my mistake, but it was hard not to see the humor. He couldn't see the wide shaved line I had made up the back of his head, so I gave him a mirror. He said, "I can't believe you did that!"  He suggested I make one on the other side to match, but I couldn't do it. We eventually came up with a great solution, and he has a pretty short cut right now, but it looks great.
It worked out for good, I actually think it's better. So often the case with life. I can be moving along in a particular direction and God carves out a different path. I can say "I can't believe you did that!"  But, the truth is, He has my best in mind, as I follow along on His path, it all turns out for good, His good. Say That Again, Jesus, You have a plan and all things work together for good in Your plan.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
