A Decision

January 17, 2012 Leave a comment

While I started this blog with good intentions, I feel that some of my recent posts may come off as a little judgemental. Truth is, I’ve been wearing modest dress for nearly a year now and there’s not much left to blog about. So I’ve decided, unless I have something to blog about, to not blog on this blog anymore.

Good-bye! 🙂 And have a safe, blessed day.

I Want To Be Treated Like A Person, Not An Object

December 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Men, when you see a woman ( or any age of female, teen, girl, etc ) wearing a mini-skirt, what do you do? Does it cause you to lust? Or do you shake your head because you know, whether or not she knows, that she is causing men to lust?

I dress in a modest, feminine manner because I believe that my Creator does not want me to be a stumbling block for the male population.

Some people argue that, because some females don’t wear jeans or anything like pants ( ex. shorts. ), they’re being ” legalistic “. ( Definiton of legalistic from The Free Dictionary )-Law) of, relating to, or exhibiting strict adherence to the law, esp to the letter of the law rather than its spirit.

I’m not sure whether I agree with some women or not that when Yahweh commands us in His Holy Word that women should not wear ” anything that pertaineth to a man “, that is really means women should not wear pants. But I personally believe that, no matter the style of pants, are not feminine.

I want to represent the glory of Yahweh,

I don’t want men to treat me like a sexual object,

I want to be treated like a person .

Respecting Your Body-The Temple of The Creator

December 28, 2011 Leave a comment

Do women respect their bodies anymore? I know some do, but a lot don’t. There’s a lot of ways to disrespect your body ( and we really don’t need to go into explaining all the ways how….. ) and one of them, of course, is wearing immodest, revealing clothing.

Immodest, revealing clothing can be: Tight leggings by themselves, low-cut shirts, bikinis, short shorts, etc.

For those of us trying to be modest, there’s someone else out there ( whether it’s TV or even people we associate ourselves with, trying to influence us differently. ( Sometimes friends don’t know that they’re influencing us! )

Which brings me to another thing: Be very careful who you hang out with and talk to. Some people are bad influences ( I know this from personal experience ) and hinder us in our walk with our Creator.

What Truly Defines Modesty?

October 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Biblically, I think it’s not trying to draw attention to oneself. Whoa, this does not mean you can walk around scantily clad and say ” Oh I’m not trying to draw attention to myself. ” While you leave five guys ( or girls ) drooling ( lusting )  behind you. ( But you can be lusted after even whilst dressed modestly! We just try and help prevent some of it by dressing modestly. )

When I ask what truly defines modesty, I’m not asking which article of clothing is more modest than the other.  I’m asking what truly defines modesty with your attitude and the way you act. I often forget that modesty isn’t just in the clothes, it’s also in your attitude and in the way you act.

Just my two cents.

I think….

October 13, 2011 Leave a comment

I think I’ve decided within myself that after this dance year I definitely want to cover full-time so therefore I’ll have to quit. Oh I dislike saying that. :/ I start thinking I will change my mind after I say that……..

The head scarfs are also giving off the wrong impression I think. I want to look Christian. Sure there’s nothing necesssarily wrong with my Muslim-like appearance, but I just don’t think it’s giving the right impression.

Should I just cover in church until after this dance year and then quit to cover full-time? Are people going to take me seriously if I still cover everywhere else but dance?

I don’t feel like going out in public right now. :/

Personal Reflections

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment

After Dad picked me up for dance, we stopped at a local gas station to fill the vehicle up. He asked me if I wanted anything. I said yes, and he asked me if I wanted to go in myself. I hesitated, but said yes.

Why did I hesitate? My bottom half clad in a miniskort and black legging. Not the problem. My upper half was in a tank top. Usually I go out with a cover-up if I wear a tank top. ( Some cover-ups are pretty cute. )

Which brings me to this question. Are tank tops ( by themselves ) immodest? My answer is this: I think it’s within the wearer’s heart and their convictions. If you’re convicted that wearing a tank top by itself is modest, then fine. But if you’re convicted that you shouldn’t, that’s also fine. In my personal opinion I think there is no one modesty standard for everyone, because our Yahweh created us different from each other.

I really admire Plain woman. Maybe someday I’ll convert to it, but for now it just clashes with my lifestyle ( some parts of my lifestyle are set in stone at the moment ).

But then again, I admire women who respect their bodies. I don’t care if you wear jeans or skirts/dresses, just….just as long….well, how do I say this…..what are the words I’m looking for?? You have to be wearing the clothes for the right reasons. Example: A hooker could easily wear a bonnet and cape dress and be mistaken for a Plain woman, but the attitude…..the spirit….the true reasons for wearing plain clothes aren’t there.  I prefer to be set apart from the world, I want people to look at me and say,” Hey, she’s not like us, she’s different. ” ( Okay, maybe not like that. )

Hopefully you will understand what I mean. Please feel free to post comments with your opinions. ( All comments are moderated, so please don’t waste your time spamming my blog. I have my ways of knowing who you are. 😉 )

Am I Wrong To Have a Muslim/Mennonite Appearance?

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Am I wrong to have a Muslim/Mennonite appearance with a head scarf and denim jumper dress thingy? But, do my jean skirts and head scarf also make people wonder what my religion is? I should think not.

I want people to look at me and say,” Oh she’s Christian. ” I want to stand out from others. Well, let me refraise that. I should want to stand out from others, but I don’t always want to.

I want to just be myself. If being myself means head scarfs and denim dresses/skirts, then fine!

Goodness I wish I could remember to shrug off what people think about me more often.

I don’t think that I’m bipolar, just at war with myself sometimes.

I need your prayers. After I complete this year ( year=August-May or June ) I really, really want to quit dance so I can cover full-time.

Easier said that done.

Yahweh’s Blessings.
