Call Me Old-Fashioned

February 26th, 2015

Old-Fashioned = of, relating to, or characteristic of a past era; adhering to customs of a past era.

CAll me Old-fashionedI think I could aptly describe myself as such considering the definition given by the Miriam-Webster dictionary. It seems only fitting since I’ve always wanted to live in the 1800s. Then again, if I can’t live there, might as well write about it!

But calling me old-fashioned goes deeper then that. I still believe in courtship, true love, and chivalry—and yes, I still long for that to come. I long for my prince to sweep me off my feet, yet in a Godly, pure manner. Who wouldn’t dream of all that?

I love dressing up for any occasion and making sure I look my best.

I love receiving flowers on special occasions such as my birthday or Valentine’s Day.

I love being called “Miss” because it reminds me of who I am.

I love knowing that I have a Heavenly Prince who is preparing me for my earthly prince if it is his will.

In today’s era, modern society seems concerned with having a fast-paced relationship doing what seems the best for YOU in the moment. Who cares about long term, what makes ME happy NOW?

But there is nothing wrong with being old-fashioned. There is nothing wrong with being a female who knows her mind and who can submit with humility, grace, and love.

I challenge you to think about who you are and how you would portray yourself to be.
