Quote of the Day: "A little modesty goes a long way..."

Courtney Kampa had an interesting comment on her blog on Catholic Womanhood the other day and she referred to something she had written in column for Seventeen Magazine's Style Council. 

We each love the freedom of making our own choices, but there is one rule that we all adhere to. One detail that threads through our triple ensembles: a little modesty goes a long way. We don’t mean prudish or frumpy. Let the record stand that we in no way condone 18th century garb as a closet go-to. Modesty just means getting dressed in a way that brings attention to your eyes. Not to mention, covering up a little bit is often a vastly more flattering option to something scanty. We want to stress the importance of a dress that doesn’t tell-all. We want girls to understand the impact their eyes can make, instead of just their … assets. And to never underestimate simple beauties, like your collarbone or your neck. Instead of opting for a plunging neckline, consider something a little less revealing. Getting dressed requires an important balancing act: if you have a short hemline, try countering it by making sure you’ve got a less-open neckline. Or if your jeans are form fitting, consider wearing a blouse that doesn’t cling.

It’s these small things that will set you apart from the crowd. A little bit of modesty also attracts the right kind of boys— boys who want to respect you, protect you, and keep your best interests at heart.

Advent 15 - Prayer Time

It's time for Advent 15 - where you take 15 minutes a day during advent to turn off the cell phone, pager, television, and other distractions and pray and listen to God for 15 minutes.
You will be so much more peaceful this season and excited too about Christ's birth! The REAL reason for the season.
You know, when Mary was pregnant and waiting, she was probably spinning yarn to make his blanket, fixing meals for Joseph. Then Joseph sprung the bad news on her - they had to travel to Bethlehem for the census. She would have to make the trip on the back of a donkey, nine months pregnant.
Why couldn't she have just stayed home with her parents?
I've never heard this explained, unless for the census they didn't trust your word about having a pregnant wife at home and she had to come along. How callous can tax collectors get?
So while you are spending your 15 minutes in prayer think about Mary. She was trying to prepare for her son's coming too, but she had to prepare for the journey, fix some food to take along, (no fast food places then) take along baby stuff cause she would have had a woman's intuition that she would deliver while they were in Bethlehem!
Riding on the back of a donkey may have given her plenty of time to think about everything and pray, but it still wasn't easy balancing on that stubborn animal's backbone, nine months pregnant.
Think about Mary as you pray and thank God for all He has given you!
