Retraction and Apology

Ever done something, and then wished you hadn’t?  No?  Well, it’s happened to me more times than I’d care to admit.  Tonight, I’m writing in conviction over my post earlier this week on church signs.  I woke up today thinking about it, and after talking to my wife (a.k.a. the voice of the Holy Spirit in our marriage), I decided to take the post down, and write this.  

If that post from Sunday offended, irritated, or hurt anyone’s feelings, I wholeheartedly apologize.  It was intended to be funny, a bit satirical.  Upon reading it, however, Amanda said I was a tad harsh.  That was not my goal.  I was trying to be funny, dare I say witty, and I didn’t take into consideration the people who might read this (yeah, I know…how many of you are out there?) and their feelings on the matter.  If it offended ANY of my brothers or sisters in the Lord, that’s too much.  
Like all apologies, there’s a hollowness to this, because it would have been much better had I never written the piece, or maybe edited it a bit before posting to keep it a bit less harsh.  That’s why people like this guy write funny blogs, and people like me don’t.  But I hope you believe my sincerity, and I hope you’ll forgive any stupidity on my part.  I’m still learning in this “humility” thing, so please bear with me.
