    Cool, so you know their older stuff too. Yep, this song (LtDTR) is great... and deep.

    Hmm... How to explain this without coming off as saying something strange....

    Bear with me!


    Years ago back in my childhood my dad bought me this game: Final Fantasy VII. It was the first RPG I've ever played and the story really captivated me. It seemed I understood the story where a lot of people/friends didn't, so after I explained it to them they understood. Not sure why they didn't "get it" but I didn't realize what I was doing was forshadowing what God has me do to produce fruit!

    Anway, the avatar's name is Aerith or Aeries (Japanese translation isn't clear and that's why the two spellings). Her story and character I could relate to, and that's why I liked her as a character from childhood. God had a way of drawing me closer to Him and it was strangley through this game, among many other ways throughout my life. Long story short, Aerith was spiritual and didn't have friends. She was stalked (much like I was as well from even younger years) and yet she still had hope in Holy, much like I had and still have Hope in Jesus. She was actually a symbolic Jesus because she died to save the world, and in the game's world, continued to live on in the unseen realm. Much like the heavenly realm we don't see physically.

    So, as you can see, this is why the avatar.

    Wow, already forgot all about this thread. Well, my present avatar is my bearded face just days before I did the after winter trim. Only about 1/4 on the sides and the chin is about 1/2 now

    My current avatar is of me and my husband, taken just a few weeks ago over Thanksgiving weekend.

    That doesn't look like a bearded Slug!
    What's the reason for your current one?

    My efforts in journaling since 2007

    When I wrote about the beard, this was the avatar at that time:

    This picture was on the cover of Asimov's science fiction magazine some years ago. An alien from another world having a bar mitzvah. I thought that was clever so now it's my avatar.

    I love to read Asimov: I used to have a giant collection of his magazines. Sadly, I do not anymore. Mine is my granddaughter just a few hours after she was boen: a true gift from God.

    God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able,
    but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

    yeah I also allowed my subscription to expire. Sadly by the end a lot of politics got inserted into the stories, because it has to be everywhere. Not our kind of politics, either.

    Indeed. beautiful!
