Introducing my short skirt, which I never really thought was that short but come to think of it out of all the skirts I do own it really is the shortest one. I always felt cute in it until on Sunday when I wore it to my church and began to feel like everyone was staring at me. Jonathan assured me it was all in my head but for some reason I felt keenly suspicious that people didn't approve.
After leaving church that afternoon I began thinking about why I was never bothered before but come Sunday all of a sudden I felt like people were judging me. It's so silly because I love my church and one thing I especially love is that there's no dress code. You could show up in a dirty old t-shirt and ripped up jeans and you'd fit right in with everyone. No one would care and besides that's not the purpose of church or Christianity, to look good and portray a certain image.
Alright I'm quickly veering off track. To make this post simple, I realized how quickly I can feel people judge me for the silliest things. Which is something many of us do. But the place we should feel the least judged in is church. Letting my mind get caught up and over aware of people around me was just a silly distraction from the real purpose of being there. I missed out on a great service and for what, a legalistic mindset saying I wasn't proper for church. What a lie!
Jonathan said I looked beautiful that morning and I should have just left it at that. Cause I did...I did look pretty darn cute if you asked me. :)
