Modesty is POWER! || Advice for girls


I read this really cool Christian book about Modesty and let me tell you- I’ve learnt A LOT! At first, I was like, Pssh! I know about modesty, just wear proper clothes and VOILA! You’re modest! But what I didn’t know was that modesty wasn’t all about the clothes you wear, but also about the way you act. Especially around men…

Of course, most of us girls like attention. We want to be the one’s who “turn heads”. Me and my dad were walking around the mall one day and spotted two russian ladies wearing very tight and very short dresses that showed off their curves and flawless legs. I looked down at my flubbery-looking calves and then stared at the two women feeling slightly jealous, and I hate to admit this but- I want to be the one turning heads. I looked at my dad through the corner of my eyes, hoping he wasn’t staring at them too. Instead, he was watching mom with an amused twinkle in his eyes as she checked out the two women herself. I chuckled mentally, so mom’s feeling the same way I feel~ Jealousy. But then I look at my dad, the way he stares at mom with love filled in his eyes. Why do we need to grab everyone’s attention, when we only need to grab one. The man God chose for you to be with. And trust me when I say, our Father knows best!

Proverbs 5:18-20

May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

So, if you want to learn more about modesty, love, lust, etc. I recommend you to read this wonderful book.

Me and Shopping?… Nah.

I went to the mall with my mom and her friend to shop for… unfortunately clothes.

One thing I learned was that the shop “Splash”, sucks. The music. The clothes… Sooo not me.

Bershka, Forever 21, and New Look on the other hand are malls I would most definitely go to, if I had the choice to choose, well, of course you can choose, Mary! Obvious!

I never really go to the mall to shop for clothes unless mom tells me to. Soo, this is quite new to me. Besides the fact that I am a picky person, most of the clothes I like are expensive, BUT rare. My mom would buy them for me in a flash, mostly because she loves me, and also because it takes FOREVER for me to choose something that I like.

If you see me in the mall, I might be searching for books to buy, having a night out, OR forced to get some new clothes. Shopping is exhausting man! The soles of my feet are practically burning from excruciating pain! and you might say, “Oh Mary, your over exaggerating yourself” Nooooo. I am not.

It really huuurts man! Like literally. No kidding. Buuut I cant say it wasnt worth it. You see, God always has His wonderous little ways. One thing I love about Him.

At the end, I got some red velvet cupcakes (My favorite) and a delicious warm coffee (just how I like it). Ahh, my tummy was really satisfied. I got my new dress and I’m happy.

Now, I’m just sitting on this coffee shop with my family and their friends, typing this short diary up, and waiting ’till I get home for me to post this on my blog.

I’m feeling a little floaty right now, and what I mean by floaty?

Happy & Contented.

Sigh, God really knows how to make my day… I mean, evening, since its not morning anymore. Well, obviously.

Oh Mary, you never seem to amuse me.

Oh shucks, you flatter me, conscience.

Uggh, Im talking to myself again, people would think I’m crazy…

Well, I’m not exactly talking am I?

What they dont know wouldnt hurt them, would it?

Scoff, it will!

Uggh nevermind. Have a nice day… Night.

New shoes! <3

Okay, as most of you guys know… I am not the type of girl who shops, for shoes especially, but when something catches my eye, no matter how expensive, I WILL buy it 😉

But my mom is the one who shops for me, either she shops herself, or she forces me to go with her… She is VERY good at shopping! Expert! If that is possible. But there are some clothes she buys that I would be caught DEAD wearing!

Example:

THAT is too fit and it barely fits me anymore anyway, and worst… it shows my armpit! *Dramatically sobs* that bad…

PS. Thank you Mom! My mom is soooo good at shopping!

She just takes what looks good on the mannequin…
