My Apologies

Did you ever have something nagging at you to be done and even though you are trying to avoid it (for whatever reason) you simply can not get anything else done until you do that one thing? It may not be a difficult thing, just something you want to avoid or put off.

I have been in that state for a few days.

Actually ever since I wrote the Perilous Women post.

Which I followed up with my "rock - n - roll" post.

I feel as though I have been loud and obnoxious lately. Not at all the woman of strong convictions but gentle words that I want to be. Not at all reflecting a gentle and quiet spirit like I want to reflect. Not at all the Titus 2 woman I long to be.

For this I wish to apologize to you dear reader.

There are a lot of things that I could use as excuses for the tone of my writing lately, but they are just that...excuses. There is no excuse for sounding my mouth off the way I did about Oprah. Don't misunderstand me, I still think her philosophy will lead folks astray from the truth. However, I never stopped to think how she may be just as lost and just as in need of a Savior. And it's easy to target those in the public eye, especially if we don't know them personally.

As to the rock - n - roll post...well...that's just a part of my past. It's amusing to listen to the things we used to listen to and chuckle over the clothes we used to wear and the way we used to style our hair...but not everyone necessarily wants to hear about it. Kind of like watching hours of scenery slides of your neighbor's vacation. (Yaaawwwnn, kinda boring.) And since my nostalgia trip included some kind of obnoxious music...well, I am very sorry.

So that is what I have been putting off lately. A heart felt apology for the tone of my writing. I offer it humbly to you.

I understand that you're apologizing for writing in a way that you weren't proud of, but I must say I wasn't offended.

Don't be too hard on yourself.

Yeah, lighten up a little on your self! Your opinions and comments were right on, and you expressed them very well. I love the variety in your writing... you certainly don't come across as a boring person! :) ~Sam

What are you apologizing for? I loved it. I love to hear what people are thinking about and what is on their minds.

Relax, Cyndy. It's OK!

I don't think an apology was needed. Yes, Oprah definitely needs a Savior, just as much as you, me, and everyone else on this planet. And everything you said aligns with God's word. I enjoyed reading your post. Jesus never minced words either.

I've had the same regrets after posting certain things sometimes. Most people aren't offended, but we do have to listen to that still, small voice.
