In my boldest and most brazen camera feat to date, tonight I accomplished this rare bit of stealth photography. In the grocery store checkout, we were behind this man. I was stunned by the length of his "dreads", or dreadlocks. I had never seen anything like it! Stupified, I reached in my purse for the camera. One quick snap while he was involved scanning. Then when he left, I followed him and got another shot walking away. The clerk was just staring, but she never said a word. Perhaps she was afraid to tangle with me, fearing I had lost my mind. And what did our friend purchase, what is that in each hand as he walks away? A box of something, and...a bouquet of long stemmed yellow roses. Samson had seven braids on his head, and I imagine they were longer than this, his hair had never been cut. Until that unfortunate incident with Delilah. Strong as he was, he never stood up very well under female nagging. Unlike what most people think, Delilah did not cut off his hair. She had a man come and shave it off. Aren't you glad that our strength rests in Jesus, who is our strength, and not in our hair?
"Having put him to sleep on her lap, she called a man to shave off the seven braids of his hair, and so began to subdue him. And his strength left him." Judges 16:19
