This maxi skirt has saved me from a major fashion bomb on at least two occasions. See the black stuff, that's kinesio tape, it helps hold and support my muscles where they are suppose to be. It is applied by my chiropractor and stays on for several days at a time. It has proven to be a challenge to hide it with warmer weather.

This is what I wore the evening before the race...I like being countrified when I go to big cities, ha! Ended up walking about 20+ blocks in them which was maybe not the wisest decision the night before my half.
As females we are constantly hit with waves of insecurity from comparing ourselves to those gracing the cover of check out line magazines or our closest girl friends, & the counter message from the Christian community is that we are beautiful, valued, and worthy. Leslie Ludy says it well when she says...
"The danger of that message is that it promotes self-esteem &we're looking [within] ourselves trying to find our value, our beauty, and our worth."
[dagger to the heart moment as the truth of the statement sinks in, now watch the video for more nuggets of conviction to gnaw on]
these photo's were all taken on the same day. the left is just rolled out of bed, literally, and the other is later in the day. given, even with my hair and make up done in the mornings, my eyes still look squinting and not awake. a trait I have inherited from my dad. there is no make up trick i have found to ward it off, other than time.
so there you have it. me. no make up. & really crazy hair that took some time to tame.
What do you think of the Leslie Ludy video?
Is vanity/insecurity something you struggle with?
If yes to 2.,
How is the Lord working in your life to help you overcome those things?
