A time to give thanks...

I was just thinking of that verse... you know, there's a time for everything. Right now is a time for me to give thanks (which I really should do more often) for all of the wonderful people and things in my life. I'm thankful for such a kind and supportive group of ladies here in the Interwebs.

It's funny. I stumbled over Amber's blog during my quest for information on headcovering - could it really be something like a year and a half ago now? It's just snowballed from there. No matter what stage of covering you happen to be in at the moment (from none to full niqab) or what religion you belong to (Christian, Islam, questioning, etc), it's nice to have somewhere to discuss and rant and vent and just have someone tell you it's okay to question or be afraid to make a change.

You've all been a source of encouragement to me as my desire and ability to cover has been affected or curtailed by outside forces, or even those within me - may God grant me the strength to cover in my search for more closeness with Him, despite what other people, even my own family, think, Ameen.

Headcovering is scary, especially when there's no one else around you doing it. But it helps to know you're not the only one who feels that urge. (Although, honestly, I like bucking the system and not allowing myself to be stuffed into a box under this label or that one.)

I have so much to be thankful for, and you ladies are high on that list for helping me to make this journey closer to God through headcovering. It's a practice I intend to resume as soon as I return from this (literal) journey I'm currently on. I ask for your continued prayers.
