Eating Crow

I did something today I’ve never done before. Something I thought I’d never do—after all, I’m a writer and we’re all about our first amendment rights, right?

But here it is: I removed a blog post.

Here’s why. In my attempt to honor one person, I dishonored another. A kind and godly man who didn’t deserve it. I didn’t mean to be a big jerk and bring dishonor to someone who has been only good to me. But as I reread the post through his eyes, I saw that I was and did.

And I’m sorry.

I wear my heart on my sleeve and sometimes my expression doesn’t convey the full extent of how I feel.

I wish I were like Anne of Green Gables “The one good thing about me is that I never make the same mistake twice.” Unfortunately, I make the same ones over and over.

Who knows, maybe I’ll learn this time. I never want to hurt someone because of my words.

Forgive me, Jesus. Help me to think before I speak—or write.
