Questions we Need to Ask

As summer is approaching (or is already here, like in Texas) :)

Do God's standards on modesty change because I approach a body of water?

Who are we trying to please- God? or man?

Here's a great read.

Great post!

I've tried really hard as it gets hotter and hotter not to even think about shorts and tank tops.

But what about Bathing Suits? Is it wrong to wear a bathing suit of any kind?

Thanks for sharing that link Lauren. A very challenging article, especially since my hubby is a runner/cyclist.

Oh, and I'm not sure yet what I will make with my new found skills of crochet..but I'll be sure to post pics of any projects:-)

Lots of love,

This is why I love, love tankini's. I can get shorts and skirts that don't cling to my rear and tops that aren't nearly as clinging as even a modest one piece. On top of that I usually wear a t-shirt if I'm going to be in proximity to men ie building sand castles with my brothers. I realize that's not quite up to standard for some people, but it works for me. I actually feel more exposed in a one piece since it conforms to the body and is rather revealing behind.

My two cents. I must admit your caption made me laugh a little. Great point.

Another great read about MODESTY is "Dressing with Dignity" by Colleen Hammond. Here is a link that gives a good discription of the book:

But, you can purchase a much cheaper copy on

Colleen is a Catholic author, but I do think she has some Great things to say, no matter what your religion.
