Good Morning

Good Morning World...
Thank GOD for another day.

Well as you can see, this is the first OFFICIAL photo of me in 10 years without my locs.
I cut them this morning at 5:45 am.
It was a last minute decision.

I asked the question on my Facebook page about 2 months ago.
I actually put it on my wall that I was thinking about cutting my locs
I got ALOT of responses...most people said NO WAY!!!

I told everyone how my journey started 10 years ago when my wife had breast cancer, and how she has been Blessed by God to be cancer free now.
But while she was GOING THROUGH...SO WAS I.
So I grew my locs as an outward display of my STRUGGLE along with my wife.

It has been 10 years, and I have been afraid to cut them...but GOD never fails.
I did have one response from my friend Jacqui Morgan in North Carolina that really STUCK with me.

She said that the breast cancer was a STORM that God had taken us through...and by keeping the locs I was continually reliving that STORM.
Then she said "You should cut them"

That was DEEP!!!

So this morning, I stood before my bathroom mirror and said "I'm tired of this STORM"

Thanks Jacqui
and Thank You God.

Have A Blessed Day!!!
