Faith

Jesus! Pay attention. It’s all in how you present your data. Random thoughts on faith, religion(s) & why they suck the life out of us.

You found Jesus? (insert bourbon)

A few years back – someone I looked up to asked me with a snarky demeanor – “Looks like you found Jesus?”.  I said as clear as I could (cutting through my Jim Beam + coke for sugaring induced lisp) – “I didn’t know I’d ever lost him.”

Faith waivers. People change, mouthed words change, and yes – the meaning behind words change.  At least that’s what I’d like to think Jesus would say to anyone he crossed paths with, because he’s supposed to know us better than we know ourselves. And I know me – I’m full of crap sometimes. We all are, and we all fall short when it comes to making nice with each other from time to time.

That’s how I feel about life & mistakes. If the sentiment is not the same, I can’t change you. But I can love you.
