Ever since I can remember, my mama wanted gray hair framing her face. As a younger child, I didn’t understand this. As I’ve aged, I can appreciate the example she provided of accepting growing older with grace, aging, gray hair, etc… While many women strive to appear younger, cover and conceal gray hair, wrinkles and anything else that alludes to the dreaded aging.
I like how Solomon put it: The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness. Proverbs 16:31 NKJV
Check out the NLT version: Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained by living a godly life. Proverbs 16:31 NLT
So, yeah, those gray hairs are a crown of glory! Especially when the person rocking them are living a holy, righteous, godly life!
I don’t have any gray hairs yet. I nearly panicked the first time I thought I saw one. But you know what? As long as I am striving to live my life for Christ, bring on the gray hairs! I will gladly and boldly wear my crown of glory!
