God

I don't believe in God.
Never did.
I'm 44 years old now.
By the time I'm 50 I hope to be able to impart some kind of wisdom from my life experiences.
I hope I have something more to say than I already have.
I don't believe in God but believing in something; people, art, things, stories, time, the ocean, stars, etc...
...believing in something IS God.
It doesn't have to come from a book. God can come from an event. God can come from figuring something out or learning that the older we get, the less we know.
God is what you make it.
God is a tree, a river, the sky, a comic book character, a great ant or your great aunt.
I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
It doesn't matter where God comes from. Just as long as you believe in something, therein lives Your God.
So, in fact, you probably do believe in God because you believe in something.
And, so do I.
