30 Days of Head Covering-Day 5

Today we went and visited my grandmother, yes my childrens’ great grandmother, in the nursing home. It was wonderful seeing her again this week. She has pneumonia though so prayers for her healing are appreciated. After visiting with her we spent time with Hubby’s Dad, paternal grandmother and most of that side of the family. So our kids got to visit with both of their living Great Grandmothers tonight. I wish I had taken pictures with Hubby’s family but I got busy with the kids and forgot. Anyway here is one of me and my Mawmaw.

I wore my Lakeshire Bliss from Wrapunzel with my Wrapunzel volumizer and my new Sari scarf. I’m not going to tell you anymore that I wore my No-Slip Velvet Headband because I wear it every day. It would be sort of like telling you that I wore a bra or underwear. Sort of redundant. Of course I wore all of the above. Duh.

Oh and I’m wearing my Wrapunzel volumizer and No-slip velvet headband, of course.

Accent pieces are a Tropical Headband in pink (Wrapunzel) and the gorgeous Lilla Rose June Flexi of the Month from my website http://www.lillarose.biz/hisgrace4ourglory.

30 Days of Head Covering – Day 2

Today we are going to a birthday party and I’m wearing almost the same wrap as yesterday. I wasn’t too happy with the pitifully tiny bun I got with just the Wrapunzel Oomphtastic Scrunchie yesterday. Sometimes it’s perfect but with my sari scarf I like some volume. Rather than just wear my Wrapunzel Volumizer (which I love), I took this as an opportunity to try my hand at making a loofah volumizer. So here is my sari scarf with the Super Duper loofamizer I made today.

Personally, I think it’s too much. I will probably reduce the size but I didn’t have time so…yes, yes I did wear this to my cousins 16th birthday party. 🙂 My uncle said “It looks like your going to fall over from the weight of your head.” I just laughed and said “I’m sure it does look like that.” 🙂

Praying for a Return to Modesty

I want to ask you beautiful ladies to join me in praying daily for and about modesty. I know that I am surely not the only one who sees displays of immodesty within the body of believers. It is on an almost daily basis. I submit that we who YHVH has called (and know that He has called you because you are here! Praise Yah!) must begin to pray diligently for a revival of modesty within the body. So many do not see this as an issue. So many think it isn’t relevant to believers today. My friends it IS so very relevant! It is a stumbling block for so many when we are dressed immodestly. “Oh but the Lord knows my heart” you say? And so He does. What IS your heart on this matter? Have you put fashion before the soul of another? Do you love Yeshua (Jesus) more than you love the latest styles? You say “Oh but I never intended to cause lust.” I would ask you to really prayerfully consider whether you are bringing glory to YHVH when your appearance contributes in any way to men struggling to be faithful to their wives. Our size does not excuse us either. We don’t get a pass on modesty because we are well endowed. I don’t believe YHVH will say “Oh it’s ok. You had cleavage pouring out of your blouse and it did contribute to a few marriages ending in unfaithfulness and divorce but I created you with an ample bust size so it’s all good. No worries.” As followers of the one true God we are supposed to be known by our love. Putting our own comfort and love of fashion above everything else is not love.

30 Days of Head Covering

A lot of people have asked me to share more about how and why I cover my hair. But sometimes people say that it isn’t very modest to cover because it makes you stand out. Or it seems immodest to wear any jewelry or accessories with the headcovering. Or maybe they think it is immodest to post photos or videos of yourself on the internet. This was becoming a concern to me.

So I began praying for Yah’s guidance. And my answer seems to be that I need to remember my purpose. I am covering not to make myself ugly or unattractive but to signal to the world that I belong to Yah and to my husband and no one else. My purpose in covering doesn’t change because I look pleasant, pretty, attractive or even beautiful. I still belong to Yah and my husband alone. No one else is allowed to share in that.
My purpose in sharing photos and videos is to inspire and encourage other women that they can do this! Not that they must. But that they can. So towards that end I am going to attempt to do a 30 day series of head covering photos and maybe even some videos, too. It’s very easy to forget to take a photo and then at the end of the day I procrastinate. I tell myself things like “Oh it was just a bandana. What’s special about that?” Or “One scarf, big deal. No one will care to see that.” So for the next 30 days I am posting photos of my actual coverings that I wear. This way it will be real. Hopefully, it will inspire or help someone out.

Children…Blessing? Or Burden?

There was a post going around social media a while back that showed a receipt from a restaurant that gives a discount to families with well behaved children. The post asked “What do you think of this?” Some of the comments were downright ridiculous. Some claimed that it was rude and unfair to parents of special needs children.
Well, I tend to think it is quite rude to assume that special needs children are always completely incapable of good behavior. Furthermore children misbehaving (special needs or otherwise) does not mean that when someone else’s children are well behaved no one should dare to commend that child and his/her parents for fear of being perceived as rude towards the misbehaving child and his/her parents. And frankly I see a lot of parents who don’t even correct misbehavior that is destructive of other people’s property, not to mention disruptive of a peaceful and calm environment.

On the other hand, I noticed someone else say that there shouldn’t even be children at this restaurant because it’s high end and she might like to go on a child free date with her husband. She went on to say that parents who would choose to take their child there are self-entitled, selfish parents and that they seem to think that their children are entitled to be anywhere just because. Well, since the restaurant welcomes children, they ARE entitled to be there. And if you think otherwise I believe YOU are the one who is selfish and self-entitled. You seem to think that you are entitled to a child free environment just because you chose to leave your own children at home. And you are entitled to do so. But you are not entitled to dictate everyone around you to have a child free night on the same night as yourself. If you want that then you should choose a restaurant that advertises no children allowed. Period.
