Though shalt wear a skirt 2

I never thought I’d say this but I’ve conformed (at least for now maybe forever) to an ultraconservative lifestyle.  Meaning for the past four or five days, I’ve worn only a skirt and no make up or jewelry (and a top of course) in public.  This mainly has to do with my pastor’s understanding of how a female should dress.  Some would consider my conformity to his viewpoint as becoming a legalist.  Anyhow, it’s not really been all that bad.  I saw this picture which I think perfectly illustrates the point of dressing ultra modestly.    If Chrisitanity has anything to do with making known the life of God contained within a person, well it makes sense not to be outwardly flashy.  As for the whole deal with wearing a skirt, I must say that I haven’t had nearly as many lustful thoughts towards women in the past four days as I’d been having before.   And the ones which have come have been much less difficult not to linger on.
