Day 126, May 4

A few days ago, I was watching a lifestyle program on television which featured a segment on prom dresses.  Having raised two daughters, each of whom attended several proms, and having a granddaughter who will, in a few years, be attending prom, I was interested in the current fashions.

To my disappointment, each of the five dresses shown was immodest in the extreme.  Strapless and low cut, the dresses did not flatter the lovely young models.  I could not help but contrast them with the dresses worn by girls in our church.  (The girls often wear their prom dresses to church the Sunday following prom, a practice I enjoy.)  Invariably, the dresses are beautiful as well as modest.

The world would have us believe that it is not possible to have a dress that is both stylish and modest.  These girls prove the opposite.

So, for today, I am grateful for girls who choose to dress modestly.

  1. And for moms and grandmas who insist on it! Fortunately, I have not yet had any struggles in this area. Notice I said yet. With 5 daughters, the odds are not in my favor.
