Why I Wear a Headcovering Part 2

Before I continue with my post I want to ask you all to pray for the residents back in Montecito, CA. As you probably heard Tuesday's rain storm caused terrible flooding and mudslides. As of today seventeen people lost their lives and there are still people missing including an entire family.  KETY news in Santa Barbara has been releasing names of victims as they become available and quite honestly I'm afraid of seeing the full casualty list when it is released. We know a few families there because our children all used to take music classes together.
Montecito may be home to some  wealthy people  but not all that live there are but nevertheless they all need our prayers.
 Thank you ladies

So like I said last time, I couldn't understand why it was such a big deal over a piece of fabric on a woman's head.
I struggled with that and wondered if I had indeed lost my marbles but then that would mean Tim had lost his too since we both believed in 1 Corinthians 11.
But we both continued to seek the Lord in this issue and we just knew that wearing a headcovering was the right thing to do.
At that time the only congregations that we knew where the women covered were Conservative Mennonites so we were able to visit a few times and have made life-long friends.

On my headcovering online group which has ladies from many denominations, nearly all the ladies are lone coverers in their church. I met a fellow blogger here in AZ  who covers and lives just a few miles from here and I've made friends with some Mennonite ladies who live about an hour away.

I want to say this. I love ALL my Christian sisters and it doesn't matter if she wears a covering or not. I don't care if she has long hair or short hair or no hair at all. We are all sisters in the Lord.

I hope this post has helped and if anyone has questions please post in the comments below. I will do my best to answer your questions.

  1. I don't get why it's a big deal either. Some faiths REQUIRE head covering, others don't. I believe that unless they harm others (which sort of goes against the grain anyway) then it doesn't matter how you dress, whether you cover (or not), so long as you do what you believe in the faith you practice. It shouldn't be so hard -- or that big a deal.

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
