As I mentioned in a previous post, there seems to be a lot of discussion on the proper attire of a Godly woman. I noticed that there are many women taken to wearing only dresses and skirts. This practice has been made most public, I think, by the popular Dugger family. I also commented on how the women who adhere to,-allow me to call it “the modest dress” lifestyle-that I have encountered on a personal basis, I feel usually leave much to be desired in their witness for Christ. This is because of their unkempt appearance and tight, joyless expression. (If this comes across as judgmental, please know I do not intend it to be)
I also mentioned that I have the pleasure of following the blogs of many of women who adhere to a similar dress code. They present a stark contrast to the women I’ve personally encountered. They ooze femininity and loveliness and, quite frankly, inspire me in becoming closer to my Savior. They encourage me in my walk towards becoming a woman with a gentle and quiet spirit.
So, we have two groups of women who seem to have the same faith but inspire different reactions. What makes the difference? I think the answer lies within. And it also requires more than this post. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written it, only to discover I have written a short book. (Which I may do-) So, once again I will continue this thought in future posts.
