“The caterpillar didn’t enter the cocoon to become a better caterpillar.”

— Rev. Tim Carpenter

Our preacher said this at church on Sunday. I don’t know much about transformation but from what I understand, it’s seldom comfortable, takes time, and often involves slowing down before speeding up.

I have heard the quote about the caterpillar and the cocoon as it pertains to my people and my journey. They say:

What do you get when you sober up a horse thief?
Well, you got a sober horse thief.

Change has never gotten me very far for very long. I need to set my sights on things a little more dramatic.

I guess if I am not getting into a cocoon or getting out of one, I should better start looking for a safe place to start spinning.

Transformation is the goal.

Peace, love and all things Beef related,
