Dear Friends, a couple of months ago I wrote you my experience in wearing a Tichel. I have the blogpost online to re-read it, and well it’s a personal and deep path I walked, because I started to feel the passion or the wanting to cover my hair some time ago. Not because man told me in history or because of marriage, I felt it, because of obedience to the Lord.
So I started to wear tichels, I watched many tutorial videos and started practicing in my bathroom for several hours at night, while the kids were sleeping. First it was a challenge to get the scarf save and not to slip while I walk or do the housework, or walk outside for bringing the kids to the childcare or playgrounds and shopping.
When I finally decided to wear and walk outside my home door it was something new, something strange for others and of course you could literally see the questionmarks on every ones head…
But only a few really asked, had the strength to ask and well, this helped me as well. Why did I decide to wear a head cover? To show obedience, not to the world or people, but to God…
When I moved in the middle of the year I changed and stopped wearing my Tichel daily. While after half a year I start feeling the missing and the strong task of obedience behavior to start wearing a headcover – and why shouldn’t and couldn’t I wear a hijab as a Christian? Well in Christ freedom we are allowed to wear whatever pleases the Lord. Still in this new area it is a challenge again, to cross the border, the people’s mind thinking and so on.
And again I start wrapping and testing at nicht, at home, while the children are sleeping and I try out different ways of wrapping and besides the Tichel I am more hijabi style lately.
Thank you for reading my story!
