At this writing,Guest Posting my hair is a closed hand's breath above my waist. It has been some variation of long mostly since being a teen, out of preference.

Though, after having read an old book on the thoughts and beliefs that originated around a woman's hair, with much name calling toward the female gender, I did thorough research of scripture in reference to hair.

Having discovered sheep verses goats being symbolic of types of people, I traced to find a definition of their hair as being the offspring seed of each.

Paul referred to himself as a type of father. Without going into the various symbolic definitions of the term 'woman', even as we perceive it to mean today, some are mothers by having literal children.

But, even those without children, who teach children in Sunday School, take on a partial role of motherhood.

Though, greater yet is when we take upon a spiritual nurturing role to spiritual babes. The offspring of a woman's spiritual seed would bring much more glory than the appearance of her physical head.

On rare occasion, God allows me to see a small glimpse of His glory rising in people who've been blessed through my ministries. And, my heart glows to see such beauty, a bit of God blossoming in each one of them. However, only God can count the number of hairs ~ the number of times that seed has been multiplied.

These are conclusions God led me to, giving me much peace.

But, if literal hair is, in any way, a testimony for which we can minister to those who believe as tradition, let God be glorified.

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 1 Peter 3:3-4
