Nine times out of ten, “never say never moments” apply to doing something you wish you hadn’t done or saying something you wish you could take back! Most if not all adults have had at least one moment such as this. Usually, when somebody utters the words, “I will never do that again, need this again, come here again, or say something like that again” they mean it, even if only for the moment!
“Never say never but some bridges you burn and others you just put behind you!”~Ministerneecy~
Some never say never moments are “elementary compared to others” such as “I’m never going to cut my hair again. The latter is one of mine. For the last 30 plus years, every year I’ve promised myself that I was going to let my hair grow down to my shoulders, like when I was a young girl. Ha ha! That pledge was a challenge because I love “sassy” short hair cuts.
OathsMatthew 5: 33-37
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
So, why was it so important for me to make that promise to myself? I don’t know, at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what length a person’s hair is. What’s important is how much love one has in his or her heart.
“At any rate, every year for the last 30 years I’ve cut my hair two or three times instead, sometimes more. Now, I don’t even know if my hair can grow down to my shoulders anymore. Since I’m older now everything does what it does slower, some of you probably know what I mean.
