@Dressember Recap #Lyricoftheday Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight #ellafitzgerald What are you doing New Year’s Eve
Holding my nephew reminds me of the reason I did my second annual #dressember challenge. I want him to grow up believing in the inherent dignity of people. Where “speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves” is his new year’s resolution every year. Where respect for women and love for his sisters in Christ comes so naturally for him that when God brings him that one woman to love and respect like Jesus loves His bride, He will hold her good and tight and show her the same love He experienced from me, his mom, his grandmas and all the women in his life. Standing for women enslaved around the world is more than just a fun reason to wear a dress every day. It’s about valuing God’s creation enough to pass it on down through the generations. If we are only concerned with making a change for our generation and our time, our efforts are in vain. We must teach the next generation and instill in them the importance of love, generosity, and grace. This is how we truly change the world.
