Kerchiefs, Veils, Head scarfs, and Burkas?

October 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Some wear kapps, some wear veils, some wear kerchiefs, some wear head scarfs, but some wear burkas.

I like the mysteriousness of the burka, lol.

From what I’ve seen, most start donning burkas after their menstrual cycle begins.

Some think burka wearers are oppressed, some are. But I think, however naively it may be, some may truly wear them out of choice. I can understand some people’s ” logic ” behind the burka. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but Yahweh created us all differently, so I’ll respect everyone’s opinions.

Anyway, the burka topic is a somewhat sticky, hot one. The burka bans. Religious intolerance or security issue? Don’t get me started, off topic anyway.

Do you wear or know someone who wears the burka? What are the reasons behind it for you? Do you wear a veil? Do you wear any head covering at all? If not, explain your convictions for us all. Remember, keep it civil. All comments are and will be moderated.

May Yahweh bless your day!

Oh I Need a Post Title!

October 7, 2011 1 comment

I have a great deal to blog about, but an appropiate blog title escapes me at the moment.

Despite being Seventh Day Adventist, I occasionally succumb and go to my friends’ Baptist church on Sunday morning. As far as I have seen, no other woman or girl in that church wears a head covering of any kind. I’m also afraid to admit to my friends why I cover in church and show them the verses in the Bible supporting my conviction. I am not up for debating the Scripture at the moment. ( Hey, at least I’m being honest with y’all )

None of my friends or family know about this blog, perhaps one day they’ll stumble upon this. I feel I can blog freely, without being afraid to fully admit my beliefs and convictions! One day I might show this blog to my mom, but who knows!

Oh, an update! My dad told me that I look nice in skirts! Rejoice! He has been trying to buy me some jeans for ages! I think he prefers me wearing the skirts that come just above my knee, though, which isn’t a problem.
