Explanation And Apology

by pastortimfowler

I realized after posting yesterday that I may have been a bit brash and maybe offended some with a few of my statements. Let me issue an explanation and an apology. First, the explanation.
I had just been reading an online article about how people use the internet to lure children into child pornography. I think that there is nothing lower on this earth than someone who would do such a thing to a child. I often sit and think about things after I read them in order to process them, but yesterday I jumped straight into my blog. Can you say oops? So if I offended some by the whole idea of killing such a pervert, I am sorry. I would hope that my Christianity would allow me to trust God for such vengeance.
Emotions are a very powerful thing. They cause us to act and react before thinking. They can cause us to challenge everything we have ever been taught and they can freeze us in our tracks. That is why it is so important to not make major decisions in a highly emotional state. Even blogging while emotional can be dangerous.
My wife was so sweet to see the pride in what I wrote and did not mention the whole gun thing. I am not sure if she is that kind or agreed with me that much. Scary huh? There is nothing more dangerous than a momma defending her young.
I have been more emotional the last few days, more than usual. I am very proud of my new grandson and equally as proud of all my grandkids. I guess the emotions come from this being the latest and the fact that it is my “baby” who now has a child. Give it time and the new one will be just as loud and irritating as the rest. That is where Mimi spoiling them comes into play.
This will be my last blog for now about my grandkids. They may be loud and obnoxious but I love them. I would do anything to protect them and I will do my best to teach them the right ways to handle life’s little problems. I am crazy proud of them all and always amazed at God’s handy work when I see a new-born baby.
