Some things ARE hard to say.
So I think I'll start with the hardest.
I Was Wrong.
Making mistakes is part of living. It's part of being human, a woman, a wife, a friend, a parent.
Goodness, does being a parent bring out the mistakes. All of my humanity, smooshed up in a heart that is so full of love, and fear, and a protective, fierce streak that doesn't ever want to mess this thing up.
So it is hard to admit, when it comes to my children, that I was wrong. That despite all the love, and best of intentions, I was wrong.
I was wrong to allow my children to be circumcised, when they were days old. I was wrong not to research it fully for myself-instead doing what I thought I had to do, or was supposed to do. I was wrong to not ask more questions, or read more carefully. I was wrong not to go with them.
So I'm going to talk about circumcision on this blog. I'm going to talk about it, because it matters. I will share information, both medical and Biblical as to why it matters. I'm going to share information with you that I wish someone had shared with me.
Here is what I promise you.
I promise you I won't use inflammatory language.
I promise you I won't post shocking or graphic photos.
