Going Full-time with Head Covering!

This is the day I am “coming out of the religious nut closet” at work. They’ve suspected it for a long time, I am sure. 😉 I am wearing my ivory eyelet kerchief over a bun and a red and ivory plaid dress with tan suede low heels.

That’s right, I am wearing a head covering to work!  I felt the nudge in my heart to start this week while my boss was out of town. You might think its the wimpy way to go but at least its a start. The rest of the staff can rumor and speculate as much as they like and then fill in my boss when she gets back. Actually, I don’t expect too much heat from everyone else. They tend to be polite about differences like religion (except my boss!)

I will give you a few updates throughout the day if I get some reactions. The internet has been restored at home so I hope to write more substantial posts this week besides the saga of going full-time.

    Hope this goes well for you today. It’s easier to get into something if you take it one step at a time– so I don’t think it’s being a chicken as much as it’s building confidence.

    That is terrific! I wish you lots of luck. I use to wear my head cover to and from work when I did work but would take it off in the office. I am sure it would be unaccepted and the way I dressed already made a loud point of being modest.

    I go through phases of wearing my head scarf but it gets more and more each day.

    God Bless,

    Bless you sister!
    I know the challenge of going “full time” as I am trying to more and more! I tend to take it off when I am around my MIL….Long story!

    I will be praying for you

    You know I’m not a head-coverer, but that won’t keep me from hoping things went well with you today, and most of all saying that I really admire you for following your convictions. This is a big step, and that you’re willing to go with it is a big sign of your humility and grace. I’m excited to hear how your day went, and what reactions you got.

    My cousin started wearing a head covering (out of the blue) and shocked a lot of people. I loved her reasons for it though…she said it provided a ‘personal check’ to her spirit that she felt she needed in public. It really made sense to me.

    Your covering sounds very pretty btw!

    So far I only cover for church or bible study or if I’m going to an activity that I know there will be prayer. Good for you to cover all the time!

    Awesome! I wish you the best. I think it will be a wonderful daily reminder for you of your own personal values and aspirations, as it is for me.

    Best of luck! 🙂

    Congratulations sister! Its been a month and a half for me sicne i started covering full time.. and yes it is a big step! Especially since i was studyign overseas then came back to Australia.. like Mary’s cousin it was ‘out of the blue’! Covering full-time can be hard for some christians to accept as it only talks about covering suring prayer/prophecy! It isn’t always easy.. it is a big step and yes you do get negative reactions (often from those you leqast expect!) At the same time sometimes i feel so joyful, blessed to be covered and often get support even from aetheists (!) who respect and admire that I followed my convictions! best of luck,
    much Grace and Peace to everyone here,
