Can I clean in a Dress?

What about Fasting?

Of course you can clean in dresses... you can do anything in a dress that you CAN do...one of THE most important things a woman *can do* in a dress is answer the unexpected knock at the front door! I am so fully persuaded that if a woman takes Scripture so seriously to support a stand on, say, pagan holidays or idolatry, for example---then, to me that same woman must needs treat all Scriptures seriously and in this way.

You know, I'm thinking that a woman should not borrow her husband's clothes---even if her *normal* sized clothing doesn't fit yet (sew/buy proper clothing!). A woman should wear things that pertain to her specifically. Think how silly it would look if our husbands borrowed our maternity tops to accommodate *their* growing belly when *their* shirts don't fit properly!!!!

Wear an apron--as has been suggested. Yes, they do make an excellent 'basket' for gathering eggs or veggies from the garden, things from all over the house, laundry, or a baby. If you make your dresses, you can make an apron and bloomers out of the same fabric as the dress and then when you have company or need to leave the house---you can slip off the apron and your dress will be clean. If you sew deep pockets into your apron, your children will know where their great stuff is that they may have left on the floor or wherever!

And as for fasting... my, there are many times when fasting is imperative! 1 Cor 7.5, Ps 35.13 and numerous other places. Not only do you identify with the destitute, or those with nothing... you set aside your pleasures of eating to focus on and gain insight in the Scriptures and in prayer.

Jeremiah 15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

There were times when the Lord exhorted a fast... (you must needs be using a KJV, here) Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Mark 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
The time spent prepping food takes up the time that can be spent in the Word when there is a particularly difficult situation to deal with.

Just obey what you know to obey----let all the rest come as the Lord provides and directs. Then you WILL surely be able to do whatever He has asked of you because He will have given you the grace to obey. You must not forsake the grace to obey. II Cor 6.1.

Most sincerely--- with all the gentleness I could muster, the pamela
