Modesty as Worship

As Christian women, we are often encouraged to dress modestly. There are plenty of reasons that are given for this virtue, but some reasons seem to have a tendency to be warped into something nasty or nonsensical. Attempts to teach girls about modesty have been used to shame them or deluge them with a long list of rules – rules that can sound a lot like “Touch not; taste not; handle not” (Colossians 2:21).*

Sometimes I ponder and I wonder why
A woman who's blessed tears up to cry
And then I remember her eyes so gentle
Feeling so deeply she loves not a little

Her life is a beautiful poem
Her heart is intricately woven
Her God-given life a sacrifice of love;
Her soul made of beauty given from above

Remember her tear; needed; 'tis true
It's a privilege if shared with you
Her sorrows are all yours now, as are her joys
Her heart is in your hands, your love it employs

I Had To Comiserate With Him

    We were walking to the bus stop from the highschool together, my friend Rob and I,  like we usually did. He was my best friend. I think I was his too. I looked up at him curiously, and glanced back at the kids that were glowering after us. We had both been awarded 'Most Mature' at the awards ceremony in May, and took our schoolwork, friendships, jobs, and lives seriously. Too seriously, according to our classmates.
