A Week of Modesty

God has really worked in our lives in the past year in regards to modesty, and I've noticed it more than ever this week. 

1.  This week, my niece decided to clean out her drawers to give herself more room.  She took all her old jeans (that she stopped wearing about seven months ago) and bagged them up to hand them down to some girls who might wear them. When she told me what she was doing, she commented, "I would feel uncomfortable wearing jeans again after getting used to wearing skirts all the time."

2.  I heard my niece ask my nephew if he is going to make his future daughters wear skirts.  He replied, "Yeah, skirts and culottes.  They're not going to be wearing jeans or anything!"

3.  My niece and I were talking yesterday about how our one year anniversary of attending our church is coming up next month.  She said that she can remember exactly what she wore that first Sunday.  She said, "I wore a tight blue shirt and that really short plaid blue skirt.  I would be embarrassed to wear that now!"

4.  My niece commented to me one day at the store that "everyone looks so strange to me because I'm not used to seeing girls in jeans anymore."

5.  She also, out of the blue this week, told me some ideas she has for a way to come up with a modest swimming outfit.

6.  And last but not least... I'm not sure if this one technically falls under the "modesty" heading or not... but my husband cut his hair yesterday for the first time in 21 years. 

Lots of changes this past year.  :)
