YEAH! A Pro-Life, REAL Woman --- who wears a SKIRT!

Happy tears - as a woman, as a strong Christian whose pro-life stance guides all my life and political decisions, as a Mom, as one with a deep concern and love for the disabled, I am thrilled beyond measure with McCain's decision to select Sarah Palen as his VP running mate. Wow! This woman has guts - and she is a down-to-earth woman that I do surely identify with. Plus all that - she has the good sense to honor her female gender by wearing a suit with a SKIRT! I hope she keeps it up during the tough days ahead. I've been praying daily for this election, and today I surely see God's hand!

Everything I've read about Sarah Palen tells me she's a remarkable woman. I'm glad McCain picked her, too! While I know I'd never vote for the Democratic ticket, I'm not so keen on McCain, either. But Sarah sounds like a woman who knows her own mind and isn't afraid to stand by her beliefs.

Praying that she has the wisdom to wear a skirt/suit again this evening for her speach. Wondering...does SHE decide what she wears, or is that all 'decided by the spin doctors' too? I have a sneeking suspicion this woman will NOT be told what to wear - hope so!

I'm also holding her and her family in my prayers - this must all be so mind-boggling for them - even without their current challenge - which I strongly identify with, having gone through the same with our daughter. God blesses valueing of life. HE turns everything to HIS glory for those who believe in Him.

September 4 and 5th - I continue to be grateful that the Republican women - Cindy and Sarah BOTH honor their gender by dressing beautifully - as WOMEN! Personally, I liked the grey jacket Sarah wore last night - at the final session - better than the one from her speach. From my textile knowledge base - it appeared to me that both Cindy's blue suit AND Sarah's jacket were of a shiny silk shantung. For the wonderful body you saw, be assured that both were beautifully made and that 'look' was accomplished by UNDERLINING - most likely silk organza utilized. Anyone else like to guess/comment?
