Guest Post Day 2!

Guest Post by Jennifer

Some women have a misconception of what feminine means. Webster's Dictionary defines feminine as, "belonging to or characteristic of womankind; having qualities, as modesty, delicacy, tenderness, tact, etc." These are qualities what every woman should possess, so why would some believe that feeling feminine is immodest? Dressing feminine (wearing dresses or skirts) should make us feel more like a lady.

Almost all men recognize the difference between a woman wearing a dress or skirt and a woman dressed in pants or shorts. Men open doors, help lift things, and show respect to women that are actually dressed like women. Deuteronomy 22:5 says, "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

So why wear pants? I've heard women say they do it for comfort. Having a dress or skirt on is very comfortable. In the summertime a flowing dress is so much cooler than a pair of jeans. In the wintertime you can put tights on under the dress and be just as warm as pants. I've also heard women say they can't do all things in jeans. I can do anything in a dress or skirt that I should be doing. I can garden, ride a bike, exercise, and run.

I never want men looking at me because of what I'm wearing. I don't need attention to make me feel good. I dress to please the Lord and to please my husband. If I am pleasing to the Lord, it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. After you surrender to the Lord and make the decision to only wear clothing that pertaineth to a woman, you will see how you will be blessed. It becomes a way of life and second nature.

Why to we need to please men, when we should be pleasing God. when your a mother, you take on a whole new role of maturity, you have responsibilities, to take care of the house, being a homemaker, and to submit and please your husband.

To bring up your children with Love and Care with strength, to love and serve the Lord, to not be like the world, to raise them up to be strong to face this world with reliance on God.

  1. The first woman to wear pants did it out of rebellion. She wanted everyone to know that she could be just as good as a man. She stopped wearing them because of all the persecution she had. As for me, I don't want to be an abomination to God and I don't want people to think that I am trying to be rebellious.
