Something I want to be able to find later...

My daughter Bonnie posted this to her Facebook today:

Here is what a friend said to me tonight. I couldnt have said it better myself. He is wise beyond his own realization.
I was never introduced to religion when I was younger, so I went on this journey to figure out what was out there. I was like "yeah, I like that but that sucks", or "that's ok, but bite the head off of what?" I said to myself I wish I could take parts of this one, and parts of this one and put them into one. I sort of settled with a UU church. Then I had an epiphany, well two at once. First, I realized that my higher power was mine, no one elses, so how gave a shit how other people got along with theirs, all I had to do was get along with mine. The second epiphany I had was that I don't have to understand it and define it. I just had to believe that it loved me and only wanted the best for me. I am so analytical that I had to define every aspect of it and know it's insides and outsides before I'd accept that it's there. Who gives a shit. It's mine and loves me and is going to help me, and I don't have to know how or why.

His name is Jesse Burns.
