It's time we all had a laugh, no matter what we're going through. I sure know I could use one, and I know no one better at laughter than this next author...
I took a lot of ribbing about this one today, but it was worth it! In "The Bigger The Hair, The Closer To God", Sue Buchanan encourages all of us to unleash our inner "Big Hair Lady". To let ourselves be free to be...us, regardless of circumstances or people.
In this hilarious and sometimes poignant book, Sue tackles unleashing us from some things and unleashing us TO other things. For instance, she unleashes us from those things that hold us back, and unleashes us to be a friend.
My favorite chapter had to be "Love Your Outfit! Does It Only Come in Large Sizes?", unleashing us from rude and negative people. Now, I'm the first person to admit, I have a glass half full personality, which can at times be a real drag. But, as I told my husband the other day when he reminded me of this, "At least I see a glass!"
I also loved being unleashed from the unholy trappings of church life. Some of the things Sue said made me wonder if she grew up in the same denomination I did! If so, praise God we've been unleashed, and I'm having the time of my life.
Filled with witty humor and even a smidge of sarcasm at times (love that!), Sue has earned the right to make us laugh. A breast cancer survivor, she is now walking her daughter through her second bought with the disease. And she's doing it with laughter filled tears, and all her heart.
That's one thing you can count on from Sue Buchanan...she has a huge heart and is a great encourager. Now, me? I just love her sense of humor. I'm giving "The Bigger The Hair, The Closer To God" five out of five bookmarks, with a tiny package of tissues.
She'll either make you laugh so hard you'll cry, or she'll make you feel so much you'll cry. Either way, it never hurts to be prepared.
