How To Safeguard Ourselves and Our Loved Ones In This Day And Age...


Living From Glory To Glory Blog









The Beach Is Calling And I Must Go...

 I got a good laugh out of this cute little thing saying. 

When I think of the ocean and crystal clear waters, and amazing white sands;
The word paradise pops into my head.

I love the salt water and the sand and the wind that blows off the amazing blue waters.
I find great joy in hunting for seashells and small pieces of driftwood.
I would love to find some sea glass this time!

But I do always feel a sadness over the half naked ladies that parade as if
it is the most natural thing in the world.

Can you be in the midst of this and not really even see it?
I do hope so...

It really does not matter where I go anymore;
I have to guard my eyes and my heart!

I would have to become a hermit and do nothing and go nowhere;
To avoid the over exposure of people being half dressed.
All in the name of what?
Fashion
Getting Tan
Parading oneself for all to see; young and old

Can we still go to the beach as Christians and not have to be assaulted?

We do hope to go to the beach and look for shells and enjoy;
God has given us such beauty!

I refuse to be robbed of all the wonderful things out there in my life!

I don't care if we have to move our chairs 10 times to not have to sit
Next to half naked people.
 We may even just go in the late evening time!

"As a Godly woman it is my responsibility to help safeguard my Husbands eyes also"

I am very thankful that I still want to protect even myself;
I believe we can grieve our Father by inappropriate dress and behavior!

Some woman think they are being stylish by what they wear;
Yet, it is never fashionable to show what only belongs to your husband!

We have heard and seen too many stories, to not take heed
To Cover Ourselves
To Cover Our Children

No locker room dressing in the open
No sleepovers
 No Male babysitters
No No No

Trust no one;
Keep your Eyes and ears open!

But remember, if you use a few innovated ideas you can still enjoy some beach time!

What are your thoughts in this overly exposed and s** crazed society?

I appreciate each of you lovelies that stop in for a visit!
You're always welcome to comment and encourage those that visit...



Blessings,

Dear Roxy! Oh, I truly appreciate how you boldly stand for the Lord and share what He has placed on your heart... I am thankful in that we are just girls in our family and don't have the added problem of watching out for those immodestly dressed ladies, but I must say! It still bothers me terribly and I try to steer clear of them...from very young my parents have encouraged us to cover ourselves in modest clothing - even at the beach! Thank you for your encouragement!
May they encourage and challenge many others...
Blessings and hugs to you...have a delightful week ahead!

I am right there with you. I taught school for years and so I know what is watched even by girls and boys. Even the young 1st graders have been taught to eye the butt cheeks on a gal in shorts at school. Do you know I talked to this mom and eventually the principal and I got all kinds of trouble going on because she was just 7 years old. Yep, only 7 but fleshy butt cheeks and boobs already forming and parents showing her just how to use them to get the guys attention. Oh my.... After that she enjoyed using her shoulders too and let me know it was ok with everyone else but the teacher. Poor little girl.

We're so blessed in Micronesia, on Guam, in the Marshall Islands and in the Marianas. Nobody plays in the water clothes-less. They don't want a "tan." They were born brown. (The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence...) So, it's wonderful.

And I can go sea glass hunting and sea shell scavenging on beaches all. by. my. lonesome. It's marvelous.

What a treat to NOT have to guard my eyes and just have fun at the beach.

May you always have a seashell in your pocket and sand between your toes.

*hugs*

Such powerful words, dear Roxy. Like Kelly-Anne said, I appreciate you standing for what's right with such boldness. I love the water and was swimming from the time I was 3-years-old. I was on swim team for most of my teen years....the water calls to me {{smiles}} But sadly I have backed away from going to pools and beaches because of the immodesty - it seems to only get worse.

I appreciate your words and wisdom, dear friend. Wishing you a lovely day! Hugs!
