Sheep and Goats

Judas and Peter betrayed God,

yet Peter kept going.

Not only that, but he was given the keys to heaven.

See the measure of our faith is not

whether or not we fail.

I mean, we all fail

It’s whether or not we’re willing to get over ourselves

and look to God

in spite of it that separates the sheep from the goats.

You are not! a Machine

You are not a machine!

You may push yourself to the limit

You may edit and (re)produce like none other

But, in the end, you are

thankfully, gloriously & uniquely


beyond the clothes,

beyond the skin

lies a soul rich crammed with more data

than the even largest memory bank

the wellspring of your individual experiences

rivals and outdoes any accomplishment

technology may bring about.


You are spiritual

and sensual;

you are alive;

you have purpose,

planned from the beginning

of time, undone by none,

purpose eternal
