A poem in honor of Resurrection Day...

I am Peter


I am the thankless leper, forgetting the Giver.

I am James and John, claiming honor not my own.

I am Peter, denying my Lord.

I am the disciples, sleeping while He prays.

I am the crowd, shouting “Crucify!”

I am Herod, demanding a sign.

I am Pilate, washing my hands.

I am the soldier, driving the nails.

I am Thomas, doubting the truth.



One Friday afternoon



He became thankless,

And He became pride.

He became apathy, distrust, and fear.

He became hate.

He became rage.

He became sin.

And I became:






I hope you had a wonderful weekend remembering the death and celebrating the resurrection of our Savior. 

In Him,
