Miss Jocelyn's suggestions on what to pray for include:
- that God’s Word would reach the people
- The people would accept it
- The salvation of the people
- The leadership of the country
- The false religions to fail
I believe it is customary to give some sort of review of the “Feelin’ Feminine Week”. I have to pronounce that it was fantastic! My opinion is that skirts and dresses make me feel more feminine, so I prefer to wear them over pants or capris. In fact, I received a comment from my dad conveyed something like this, “Allison, you and your sister have accomplished your goal this week. You have looked more feminine in your dress.” My dad prefers us to wear skirts and dresses, so I do too!
There is one thing that hinders girls I believe from doing stuff like this, (I say this from experience) that it seems like you can’t do so many things if you are wearing a skirt or dress. You believe you will feel limited in what you can do. But it is quite the opposite! I say from experience from the last months that is possible to do almost anything in a skirt or dress. One thing I don’t suggest though is climbing trees or riding a bike, unless you have a pair of long shorts or capris underneath. :) (no, I haven't tried it) If those are the reasons that have lingered your decision, I encourage you to just try it! You’ll find that it isn’t that hard. I do prefer skirts that flow out though, and not pencil skirts and dresses, because those are harder to walk and do things in.
Modesty is another important thing to factor in when wearing skirts or dresses. As long as you stay away from short skirts and high slits, it's pretty easy to stay just as modest or more than in pants.
I decided to take part in the Feelin’ Feminine Challenge, as I have seen other bloggers do. I’m not the only one doing it this week however, because my sister and some other girls in our church are joining with us. I believe this will make it much more enjoyable and meaningful, because then we can discuss what it was like and the differences between skirts and pants. Wearing skirts and dresses is not completely new for me though, because usually half or more of each week I wear skirts or dresses. I’ll post the pictures of my outfits from neck down :) . I’m excited! If you have not already participated in this challenge, I encourage you to! Please go to http://aponderingheart.com/blog/?p=357.
