How Ever Will I Do It?
How will I be able to raise my daughter to be a lady, in this society?
I hate shopping. I know, I know. Weird. I shop only when it is absolutely necessary. And since I discovered online shopping, really the only time it is necessary, is groceries.
I hate shopping because it reminds me of everything I despise about this world. Teen girls in short, shorts with "naughty" written across the bum, complete with a too-snug tee shirt banishing "My moms thinks I'm at the library". Teens on cell phones. Belly rings, glitter. Rows upon rows of plastic made-in-China toys.. Screaming, demanding children "I want thhhhhat!!!!!" All of this, topped off at the checkout, with racks of magazines of scantily clad women, and Paris Hilton worship. Did I mention the non-verbal cashier? I leave most stores as if they were on fire.
I won't even talk about the "keeping up with the Jones's" plague.
How am I going to raise my daughter to be a lady, in this society?
In a society where bad girls are good....and good girls are.. weird.
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I have been doing a lot of self examination lately. How I dress. How I speak. What I say. How I react to things.
I know everything I do, my little ones are watching. My daughter is watching.
And I know, that more is caught, than taught.
