Modesty is very much dying art in our culture, everywhere we turn we are exposed to more flesh than at times we want to see. Our little girls are being taught to dress older than their actual age. The teenage girls are going to school and feeling pressure if they do not dress sexy enough. But then at the same time we are wondering why there has been more reports of rapes and children being hurt.
My dear hubby gave me a view from a mans perspective: Two women walk into a club: the first women is dressed very modestly and very tasteful while the second women has T&A hanging out. The first woman is going to be seen as a Jewel in the eyes of men something precious to be protected. While the second woman has basically hung out an invisible sign saying” free for the taking”.
We women that chose to dress modestly are sometimes trying to cover up everything. When actually our bodies are a present to be unwrapped carefully by our husbands. By dressing modestly we are preserving ourselves as a jewel and treating our bodies as we are supposed too. Dressing sexy does have it’s place in our marriage, it just can be done very tastefully when out of the bedroom. We do not need to put our body on display for all to see to be sexy for our husbands.
By dressing modestly we are treating our bodies as a jewel and not something to be used and thrown away. All of us women and girls are precious jewels, beauties that are very much precious in His eyes.
My marriage has not been a perfect one, we have hit so many ruts and boulders that we are a wounded couple. There was days that we both thought we was headed for the “D” word. Also my dear hubby even chose to find someone else to confide in and to possibly be his new wife. We have met with many pastors and just seemed to not be able to get anywhere with them. I have been told by a couple pastor’s wives to leave my husband. This was very much a shock to me being raised in the church and been taught that the “D” word was not an option. It was hard for me to reach out to others, so I chose to not talk about what was going on in our marriage for a long while. Now is the time to come clean to say I am not the perfect wife and I do not have the perfect marriage. But here is what I have to say the “D” word is not in my marriage vocabulary. I have made a choice to make a stand by my husband thru thick and the thin, sickness and health, till death do us part. Also I have made a choice to become a better wife for him, to show him that love does heal wounds.
