I told you I'd be back with more thoughts on modesty. I had this whole post on God-centered confidence written in my head. In it, I tackled a tradition and an institution much more controversial than the Super Bowl spectacle. The words were totally ready to pour onto the screen, as I've been thinking about it off and on for a long time
But then I thought, You know, Meredith, this is going to hurt some people.
While the message I wanted to deliver is still valid and one I would deliver to my own daughter or niece or other loved female, it's not one I think would affect my readers in a positive way.
Sometimes we have to step back and evaluate whether our words, even well-meaning ones, are appropriate for the audience about to hear them. I decided mine were not. If anything, it may have caused some of my readers undue shame. That, my friends, would be the opposite of my goal.
I say all this to let you know why I'm not following through with my comment from the last post. I don't want you to think I've forgotten it or that I just got lazy. Instead, I'm choosing to shut my mouth (stop my fingers?) and be sensitive to all of you, the people who bless me with your presence here on the blog.
Sometimes it's good to be quiet. I'll be here again soon, though! The break is definitely over.
