The Gospel on Our Sleeves →

This is amazing. Amazing. She finally hit it on the spot. “Out of the abundance of the heart, our clothing speaks.” And so it does. I mean, it just makes everything fall into place.

Also, the way she wrote about her faith. Gorgeous!

John, there are no points I disagree on. She says what’s in my heart, but only more beautifully. “As for my second mistake, I should have made it clear that modesty is not only a women’s issue.” Somebody hand me a marker, and let me just circle those words “not only.” This author comes from a more gentler point of view, I come from a place of hurt understanding after years and years of having to put up with men yelling “hay mees” in the most lascivious way while I’m walking around in loose jeans and a baggy shirt. (I’m working on the gentleness, not to worry.) I’m coming from a place where most of the men who surround me do not see modesty as their issue and responsibility, but something that’s entirely within the strange world of women. “All of God’s children need to evaluate their desires and intentions when it comes to their clothing.” And, if I may so humbly add, when it comes to the way we size up other people according their clothes (actions, words, drinks of choice, politics, etc).
