Blogging about Christian Headcovering

Here's a few posts over the past little while:

Why I Have Chosen to Wear a Head Covering

includes this helpful advice:
1. Women should have their shoulders, knees, and head covered while in church. However, this doesn't mean that women should wear overly baggy sweaters and shapeless skirts. It is still important to look like a woman and not a pauper. It is possible to embrace your femininity without sacrificing modesty. Head covering is preferable and not necessarily required (though this fact is debatable). It should be done with a veil (of appropriate color for your life state, etc) or a nice looking hat that is appropriate in style. Women who have never married should wear white or an ivory colored veil while married women wear black. Young girls should be held to the same standards as women to the best extent possible (ie - it may be difficult to keep a little viel on the head of a young toddler!). Also, colored veils are pretty, but look pretty juvenile on a grown woman. They look best on young girls.

scroll down to the first question, does a divorced woman still need to cover her head?
includes these thoughts:
We should remember that the headcovering is not a punishment, it is a blessing and a sign of God's great order and glory. Women who veil themselves willfully out of obedience to God, find that it frees them from so many worldly errors, and gives them a sense of peace and belonging in God's kingdom. It should never be considered a burden.

photos and historical references to the tradition of headcovering, including these comments:
I am not wise enough to say much about head coverings. But veil (head coverings) is a beautiful thing in my opinion. When I saw people wear head coverings back home in Indonesia, I put more respect to those women, for it gives a sign of contradiction in the world that glorify immodesty.
