Since I am in the process of transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, I have been in search of a leave in conditoner to replace the All Ways Instant Oil Moisturizer Leave In conditioner that I had been using for years. Apparently, the All Ways brand is being discontinued since it is now very difficult to find in stores. When I do find it in stores, I usually stock up. Although Kids Organics Shea Butter Moisturizing Lotion is advertised as a kid's product, it does an excellent job detangling and moisturizing my hair. I have been transitioning now for nine months. This shea butter moisturizer leaves my hair extremely soft, and it does not contain mineral oil or petroleum.

For some of us, life really has us down, disgusted and revengefully angry. We are tired of being disrespected and taken advantage of. We are tired of users with their sorry schemes and pathetic lies. We are tired of lazy, trifling people dismissing their responsibilities and shoving them onto others. We are tired of patiently waiting like little "goody two-shoes" for God to fight our battles and bring down wrath upon our enemies. As a result of our tiredness, we are about ready to take matters into our own hands. We are about ready to do something or say something that will let them know that we are NOT to be reckoned with. WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! Just before you say or do something that you may later regret, "Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!" You and I must understand that this battle, this struggle, this dissention, this discord - the one that stares us eye to eye everyday, is not even our battle. It belongs to the Lord. The God we serve does not need our help. If we take our hands off of the situation, He will handle it for us. He does not need our help to handle His business; Nor has He ever needed our help. He is more than able to handle every impossible situation in our life. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD! (Exodus 14:13; 2 Chronicles 20:17)
