The Body of Christ

I met this woman - once - in a church. She learned of our adoption and said she would love to come over and do Anna's hair. Being woefully inadequate on hair issues (I can't even do my bio girls' hair, much less this huge mass of textured hair that Anna has), this was a huge blessing to me. She spent 4 hours at my house today - 3 of those braiding. Did you catch that - 3 hours of braiding hair????? On one person!!! And to top it off, she said she would be back when it was time to re-braid. What a blessing it is to be a part of the body of Christ. we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them.....
Romans 12: 5-6

What a blessing to have someone who knows how to handle hair like that. Those braids are beautiful.

It looks like your family is very blessed.
