"and who is this in the corner?"
"its my sister, the one right above me"
"nice...and who is this girl in the other picture?"
"its her again"
"really? doesnt look like her"
"yep, thats her"
"hmmmm"
"recognize everyone from all the other pictures?"
"uh ya i think so...wait, who is this one in the back?"
"are you joking? its her again!"
"are you serious?? she looks so different in every picture!!"
"i know i know, unless you meet her and really get to know her, you wont recognize her easily just from some pictures"


And immediately I thought of our relationship towards G-d.

Sometimes we see a Kind G-d, sometimes a Harsh G-d, sometimes a G-d with a sense of humor, or a sense of understanding, and sometimes we simply think 'where is He??'.
But only someone who has gotten to know what Hashem is all about, someone who has studied chassidus and tried, limited though for he is merely a finite creation, to understand and perceive G-d as much as he is able to, only he can recognize G-d in every picture and in every situation.

But surely Sabra understands the wisdom of "random commenting." Thank G-d for Internet History.
