I apologize

I woke up this morning actually thinking of the different ways people have apologized to me in the past, (and I’m sure I’ve used some of these also): I’m sorry you took it the wrong way.

Hurt feelings

People hurt our feelings. We hurt others’ feelings. Often it is unintentional, a thoughtless statement made in passing, or a passionate discussion that elevates out of control.

I finished Revelation and will now begin again with Genesis, one of my favorite books of the Bible. A verse that still gives me chills is: Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. Genesis
