Manifesto on Matters of Importance

I believe in matter.
That I exist as solid matter
And as a spirit inhabiting that matter.
I also believe that I matter.
Not just to those whose lives I touch,
But I matter in the Heavens to One who
First created matter and also created me.
I stand, and not on empty space,
I rest, because
I matter.

If only we could all realize that we do matter, and often touch others lives unseen. Great insight.

Great post. We all matter. We should all matter in the eyes of others as well as God's.

Really lovely twist on "matter" and the meaning of being. Thank you for a creative post!
