Let Them See Jesus!

What’s the first thing you want a man to think of when he sees you? The way you dress tells a whole lot about the answer to that question. If we as Christian women dress to try to get guys attention then we will get that attention. They might be thinking really nice or flattering remarks about you. They might even tell you some. Yet are these thoughts the first that we want guys to think of when they see us. What about the nonbelievers who would be thinking all kinds of lustful thoughts about you? Do we really care so much about the attention from guys that we would give away our purity? Personally I don’t.

3. Stepping on the crunchy crisp leaves without having to watch out for snakes.
4. Climbing a tree without having to take off all the granddaddy-long-legs first.
5. Enjoying a cozy Tea Party with friends or sisters.
6. Sitting for a nice cup of hot Chocolate to warm my bones after coming in from the biting cold air.
7. Christ…
