More on Modesty...
(I feel like I'm sort of "thinking out loud" on this post today, so thanks for letting me share my thoughts. I know several of my readers have taken this journey and so I feel this is a "safe" place to do this.)
I'm not sure I think that it's "wrong" for women to wear pants. I don't think the Bible says it is. Does it? But God is pulling me toward a more modest and feminine way of dressing. Plus, I did some research today on when women starting wearing pants. Funny thing...women wore dresses for thousands of years, and it hasn't been that long that they have been wearing pants...and lo and behold, guess who first pushed for this??? Guess?? Gasp...the feminists! Why am I not surprised??? And because I am totally against everything that feminism represents, it makes me want to stop wearing pants as a statement that I DON'T AGREE WITH THE MODERN THINKING OF FEMINISM. I want to dress more feminine as a way of representing the traditional woman. Because that's what I'm all about...traditional conservative Biblical womanhood.
So this is what I am pondering. I don't know what I'm doing about it yet, other than praying about it. I haven't mentioned it to my husband. I don't know what he would think. Did you ladies who made the switch take the idea to your husband first?
I appreciate your thoughts on this, and your prayers, and thank you for listening to my rambling thoughts!
