    The story behind your avatar. What made you pick it.

    I'll start with mine. It began life as an image created by two artists for use as a Facebook avatar for Navy Veterans and Grumman Employees with some kind of attachment to the F-14. My attachment is that I am a member of the F-14 Tomcat Association. It turns into a logo when trapped in a circle which Facebook does with the profile photo. I like the one with the red and yellow. The light blue sky variant is the 'official' version.

    My avatar has the statement "The stone crushes the eye" in English and in Arabic.

    The relevance? In Egypt and in middle eastern societies a lot of people believe that covet can have actual effects. That is, if you buy a new car, and someone sees it and talks about how good the car is and how he/she wishes to have it.. then there is a risk you will make an accident. (Lame belief I know, however it has relevance. Boasting what we have in front of those who don't have can lead God to take the protection off what we have unless we repent)

    So? They say something like "The eye crushes the stone". The eye of who? The person who coveted. (In their belief)

    I also noticed the promotion of the eye of Horus in the media previously many times and how the single seeing eye is seen as special by the world.

    So? Who is our corner stone? Jesus. As written in the Bible.

    Hence? The stone (Jesus) crushes the eye (Horus or Satan). Which is contrary to the middle eastern belief that the eye crushes the stone. It cannot :)

    I recently visited a museum in which an ancient Sator Square was displayed. I had heard of them before but I decided to do more research when I got home, and I discovered that it has a Christian meaning.

    Kia did a promotion with Hamstars. So I found this pick when looking for something to use. I had a few, but this one stuck.

    Pretty much says it all.
    The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. All in the name of Jesus!

    William Blake (1757-1827) is a poet and painter. I was drawn to his illustrations for the Book of Job and Dante's The Divine Comedy. He was something of a genius and mad-hatter, yet I like his biblical paintings.

    My avatar is The Woman Taken in Adultery, cir. 1805

    We live near Shaw AFB... home of F16s. Love to watch them fly in formation over the house. That is the sound of safety.

    I change my avatars out occasionally. This current one is of St. Moses the black.
    One reason I picked it was the inscription he was holding.

    Affliction lasts but a short time, peace lasts forever.

    I change mine periodically, but this one I think is going to be keeper, because it looks so nice small.

    If I recall correctly (I don't actually have it saved on my computer anymore, I don't think), it's the altar from the Coptic Orthodox portion of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.

    Not sure, unfortunately, she has submitted herself to the entertainment elite.

    ...a manga, drama, and anime about a high school kid who despises history accidentally taking a fall and wakes up in another era, looking identical to a famous daimyo in Japan, who urgently decides to switch places with him to escape his problems, ending up staying for decades there fulfilling all that was written about him in the history textbooks without knowing it. In this picture, the real daimyo's wife falls in love with the man from the future who is vastly different in personality than the one who ran away from the clan as head.

    My current avatar is a drawing I made. The characters are Silver the Hedgehog from Sonic (because he's my current favorite character) and his friend Chinon (who I made up). They are jumping with a blue sky in the background. The inspiration for this drawing was simply that the image came to me one day and I wanted to draw it.

    I often use my drawings for my avatar since I like to draw.
