I am especially sorry that I disappointed one of my faithful readers and made it seem that I was flippant and even rude. I am left without other excuse. You must all know how much I care about my readers, even to the extent of praying for you. I would never do anything by deliberate intent to hurt my readers ~ carelessness is no excuse. Perhaps being human isn't an excuse, either, but maybe a reason - and yet further evidence that I am just another fallen child of God, full of sin and error, but for the grace and mercy of God.
Martin, I publicly and truly apologize and trust you will forgive me. I hope I will not lose you as a reader. I cherish you and all of my dear readers.
