That’s because true modesty has little to do with clothing or jewelry or makeup. The virtue that is celebrated in Scripture is so elusive we struggle to find words to capture its spirit— humility, self-control, plainness, tznuit, Gelassenheit. And so we codify. We legislate. We pull little girls to the front of the class and slap rulers against their bare legs and try to measure modesty in inches. Then we grow so attached to our rules that they long outlive their purpose, and the next thing we know, we’re adding leaves to our tables and cutting the ends off our roasts. We cling to the letter because the spirit is so much harder to master. More often than not, this backfires, and our attempts to be different result in uniformity, our attempts to be plain draw attention to ourselves, our attempts to temper sexuality inadvertently exploit it, and our attempts to avoid offense accidentally create it.

Doing my 2nd to last day in Missouri right: rainy morning, coffee, wearing flannel, & festival of the little hills with Angela. Sounds about perfect if you ask me.
Just looking at him could make me tremble. When he took my hand in his, the feeling caught me in the pit of my stomach–his hand was warm, protecting & full of love. When he saw me at the beginning of the day & when he called me on the telephone, his first words were always, ‘Hello, Baby.’
