Welcome!

I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

Your pal, Jess

F.Y.I. There are about 900 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

Heroes and Good News

Need a Lift? Inspiration? Alternative to the violent and dismal?
Here's a list of sites to get (& keep) you going:

HEROES. Individuals who make a difference.
1. Cnn heroes (Notice how there's room for more candidates)
-wikipedia entry with links to each hero
2. Gimundo heroes
3. The MY HERO project
4. Grab bag: What I think is a rather odd mix of fictional and military and historical and business and personal heroes: heroes.com
5. I'm trying to do my part to be a hero, too. Heaven: a world of heroes.

GOOD NEWS. News from around the world to keep spirits bright.
-From Others:
1. Good news central (google page with 18 good news sites to choose from)
-For Future You:
2. Just what the doctor ordered! Self-help:
(Motivation, inspiration, goals, achievement, happiness, positivity, overcoming, abundance, growth, adventure.) link page
-{on a more structural level: progress and development}
3. United Nations Development Programme link

Remember, all the bad news is just opportunities knocking to feel good, through action and leadership.
E.g.
-It's 4 years after the tsunami that the un estimates killed 223,000. charity link awaits. there's an endless sea of need.
-Exxon-Valdez was 10.8M gallons. The current Tennessee coal ash sludge is over 1B gallons (on land). Instead of wailing and gnashing teeth...Well, I've got the link to congressman, if you want to lobby for infrastructure investment (I'm not sure what else we can do).
Anyway, what'd you get for Christmas?
