I have received two special blog blessings this week. Both Susan and Mrs.Blythe featured my blog on theirs. I am honoured by this, but also I am a bit uneasy about this post, seeing that I might have some new visitors who don’t know me yet, and might not take this the way it is intended. I love all my sisters in Christ.
Every once in a while the issue of clothes comes up. There are basically two camps. The Pants Camp and the No Pants Camp. In these camps, there are subdivisions, but basically there are just 2 camps.
Now, I know that this is a highly charged issue. There are many reasons for that, but I will not go into that today, or maybe ever, because I really, really have no desire to argue this topic. If you write something on your blog about this, and I totally disagree, I will not post a comment.
That being said, here are my two cents; )
We all read the same Bible, so we all know what the Bible says about clothing.
1. God wants a difference between men and women in their clothing, per Deut 22:5
2. God wants us to be modest. 1 Tim 2:9
The problem is that we all have different ways of viewing these two directives. OK
But, there is something that most ladies leave out. Shamefacedness. We don’t even know exactly what it means. I didn’t even know what it meant, so I studied it and I believe that shamefacedness is the opposite of sexy. OK. What is sexy? Hee hee! How should I know? Well, I don’t know, but I “know” two gals who do! Here in Chile, while I had cable TV,
I watched BBC’s “What not to wear” hosted by Susannah and Triny. I just loved hearing them trash some poor fashion-deprived woman, glad they weren’t talking to me!!!!!! Anyway, they tell the ladies how to be sexy. They tell them how to wear the pants just right so that their thighs and bottom look good. (this is NOT shamefacedness) They tell them how to unbutton their blouses just so, to show their breasts and bras, just a bit.(This is NOT shamefaceness) How to wear their skirts and trousers so they cup under their fannies and “show off” their bottoms.
Shamefaced to me, means I do not wear anything that clings to the shape of anything private, from my knees to my neck. I avoid “sexy” in my wardrobe.(Do not mistake this for dumpy, I hate dumpy, but we’ll get into that later!)
So here it is,
That’s my two cents!
