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
Ladies- I'm a single, straight, virgo/boar INTJ (age 45) who enjoys books, getting out into nature, music, and daily exercise.

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 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.

Reifying God

'Reification' and 'Prayer'

1. 'reify' means to make something abstract real
I'm convinced, as I've said earlier, the only way to make 'God' real is to become Him (or Her).

maybe you think Being God is a lie.
Maybe it's one of the "lies we tell ourselves in order to find wholesomeness and truth" (a quote I took from the description of the upcoming play, 'Chester Bailey', in which my cousin Erin's hubby, Dan Clegg,  is playing the title role (a 2-man play!), from 5/25 to 6/12, at the Strand Theater (1127 Market St., SF).  I'm looking forward to seeing it.  And being 'Uncle Jesse', again, to his daughter, due in early March!

2.Today's poem (I get emailed a poem/day, from poetryfoundation.org)
'Prayer', by Francisco X. Alarcon
      check it out! ...underlies my philosophy perfectly!
      i'd copy it to this post, but i'm not sure if that's illegal.
