First, let me say thank you to all of you who have stepped up for all the momma's on Gleaning the Harvest this past weekend. It is truly amazing what YHVH can do through you! I pray that this will not be a "one time" thing....these momma's need our help. You can sign up for reminders each month by going to the main page, and in the second box on the right hand sidebar, there is a spot to put your email. You can also support these momma's by putting the GTH badge on your blog, or a specific family's ChipIn badge.
Now, on to skirts. YHVH has been speaking to me on this subject for some time. I haven't been quick to follow though. I seemed to always have an excuse...oh I have too much cleaning to do today, it will be easier in jeans. I have to go to the dump today, that will be easier in jeans. It's too cold, jeans are warmer. But I have had an epiphany in the last few weeks.............
There is nothing I can do in jeans, that I cannot do in a skirt. I think there is a psychological thing at play, as I have always seen skirts as "dressing up". That is the only time I ever wore them before...to a wedding, funeral, or some other important life event. Even when I worked as a secretary in my younger days, wearing a skirt was a once in a while thing. And when I did, everyone was shocked. I have been a tom boy since the day I could walk.
But something is happening.....skirts are becoming my almost daily attire. I still wear jeans, but it is becoming less frequent. To combat the cold now that our temps are dropping rapidly, I have gone to wearing long johns under my skirts. I also was able, after a year of waiting, as the priced dropped from $50 to $5, buy a pair of nice boots that go almost to my knees, to wear with my skirts on cold days.
Another transformation is my attitude. I feel so feminine in a skirt. My attitude changes when I put one on. I don't know if I can fully explain it. I walk differently, I carry myself differently. I am sure YHVH is smiling down at me, saying "Told you so". LOL!
Deciding to wear skirts is a personal decision. It is between you and YHVH. But I would challenge you to do some research in Scripture, read some blogs of ladies who are also convicted to wear skirts, and pray to YHVH concerning this issue.
One of the best resources for me on wearing skirts and the "why", is the blog A Pondering Heart, written by Miss Jocelyn Dixon. She is a wise young woman, far ahead of her young years. Even as an older woman, I learn so much from her site, and the discussions that take place there. I highly recommend you head on over there and read a bit.
Shalom and be blessed!
