  1. Nice. I liked the attributes you listed that differentiate us from what we consider animals. Along the lines of art and creativity I’d also mention beauty of the mind, i.e., aesthetics. I know for me that there is also beauty in looking at a chalk (or dry erase) board that has a math problem I worked out and it literally took up the entire board (when I was teaching). It really is amazing. But the truth is that it is a limited beauty. It’s a controlled situation. You have to play the game by the rules (in this case, mathematics), for it all to work out. Don’t play by the rules and the beauty turns into garbage. Not so with our Heavenly Father. The Good News is that if we keep on putting him first above all idols, then we don’t have to worry about the world’s rules, because the only rule of God is love. Thanks for the on-line outline for us that are not physically there. And nice Gollum imitation, too. Bet I’ll have nightmares now… precious…! 8^) TA
