“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

How true... God wants our hearts to be a reflection of Him and He wants people to be able to see Him in our eyes, actions, words, hobbies, etcetera. However, although I agree with Audrey that "The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears" I do believe that what we wear reflects our inner heart and if we are to be a reflection of Christ then our clothes are to reflect him as well.
So...... I just found out about a "Clothing Challenge" that will be starting tomorrow and ending next Saturday.
I've seen several different clothing challenges and each one has a God honoring vision, but I've never felt led to enter any of them. This one however, I feel is different from the others.
* First of all, it is for girls and guys!
* It's focus is on the hearts of the wearer
* It is a week "to put a little thought into what message your clothes say for you."
The focus of this challenge is as follows:
"Not attracting abundant attention to yourself, avoiding over thinking your outfits (and people’s responses to the outfits), and self control (avoiding gaudiness)."
The challenge's focus is to wear clothing that is carefully chosen to send a message that honors God, without spending an absorbitent amount of time choosing the outfit. Our appearance is a reflection of what is in our hearts and our hearts as Christians are to reflect Christ.
I think this will be a lot of fun and would love for more people to get involved! If you are interested, please go and check out the challenge, sign up and then let others know! Have fun!
