A Passion for Purity: Christian Devotional
The parade stopped right in front of us and the young girls on the dance team got into position.

as the mother of a very tall young woman, I fought the clothing battles daily when she was a child. not only did the 'latest' fashions look too revealing in cut but too short in length. from shirt hem and sleeve to pant inseam and rise. we blamed the clothing manufacturers and searched all over to find things that didn't cut into her while she climbed trees or bare her middle when she stood! we came up with a set of rules for the clothing, not for her. I wanted her to know the clothes were the problem and not her! at 20 yrs old and in college, she goes with the flow more now, mismatched socks and neon color undergarments. All in fun but she know that the clothes reflect her and not the other way around.
