Windows Movie Maker

Good morning, dear readers! I have a brand spanking new post for you today! As you may recall, in a previous post about the changes that would be made to this blog, I mentioned posting some technology entertainment. And that is exactly what I have for you today!

I like technology, and recently I have been experimenting with Windows Movie Maker. This program is described as follows:

Windows Movie Maker (codenamed Sundance, formerly known as Windows Live Movie Maker) is a freeware video editing software by Microsoft. It is a part of Windows Essentials software suite and offers the ability to create and edit videos as well as to publish them on One Drive, Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr.

It started with my graduation “movie” of approximately two minutes. I realized that it was just a very fancy PowerPoint presentation with a lot more to offer. And I loved making PowerPoints so this was right up my alley! ;-) Anyway, I made another “movie” for a friend using pictures from her sweet sixteen. Her family loved it and I enjoyed making it. I did another for a pastor at my church who had a birthday party. Each time I learned something new about the software and how to make the movies better. Just recently I made another movie, for one of Landry Cantrell’s songs called “Smile.” I had a great time putting that together and learning more about the program. 

Long story short I made yet another movie for Landry’s song “Footsteps.” (I really like his music) :-D This time I uploaded it to Youtube and now I want to share it with you! Thus, without further ado, I present, “Footsteps” by Landry Cantrell.

 Thanks for reading–and watching!

Before We Begin

My sister and I are excited about starting our Fashionably Modest posts. But before we start I would like to refresh your memory and mine just in case we’ve forgotten, about the importance of modesty.

“likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.” (1 Timothy 2:9-10 ESV) 

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” (1 Peter 3:3-4 ESV)

Modesty is a result of humility thus immodesty is a direct result of pride.

God is holy and we must do our best to walk in humility before Him and that includes how we dress. Does this mean we must dress like this:

No, our God gives us the freedom to wear what we want, and because we have that liberty, modest apparel can be very stylish. My sister and I hope to demonstrate to you how we make our attire fashionably modesty. Those posts shall be coming forth soon! Until then, here are a few examples of–in my opinion–trendy modest outfits.

(Thanks to Pinterest!)

         

So you may have noticed that these are all skirts and a dress. And you may be thinking, “Oh so to be modest I gotta wear a skirt all the time?” :shock:

No, this is not the case. Wearing pants is not a sin. However, the wearing of some pants can be a stumbling block to others. Yeah, the tight ones, the ones with too many holes/rips in them…but that’s another post!

Anyway, in my family we have chosen to try to wear more skirts than pants because we believe that skirts and dresses are more feminine. However, we still wear pants in my home and when we do we try to make sure that we go about wearing them modestly. Here are some visual examples of ways to do that:

              

Welp that’s all for now! Until our next fashion post…
