האניבאל (Hannibal)
= אהבניאל (Ahavniel)

Ahavniel is a Hebrew name that means "G-d loves me." A good name for you, Hannibal.
Thanks, always love your posts.

Do you believe that HaShem chooses to give us extraordinary gifts from time to time? If you do believe this, then do you have a personal experience regarding this? If you don't believe this, I'd like to hear about that, too.
I'm asking this, because I think that I've recently had such an experience, and I'm curious as to what others think on the subject.
Um...constantly, Rachel!!

Too many to even write about....and I have many times on many forums.
Gifts that are a bit too much, too impossible for most to believe...so I am shy now to share them.
Gifts as if dropped right from Heaven...flung outta space.
So many...oh my...and each time I am humbled and in awe...but never surprised...why?
Cuz He is my Father and I am His beloved. That is the relationship...forever.

Always be grateful. To be alive and well is gift enough.

I was in the Texas DPS getting a drivers license renewal, and I had to wait 45 minutes outside and then like 3 hours inside in a building crammed full of people. To me, this was a miserable experience, akin to being in prison though in prison you could presumably settle down and at some point do some activity. This was 3 hours of absolute nothing, you couldn't even take a nap because your number could be called (though some people did.)

So to keep myself occupied I wrote a list of things I could be grateful for about that situation, and surprisingly I listed about 11 things.

I'll bet that writing that list also helped to lower your blood pressure!

Welcome to the Judaism forum, plumsink.

I think alot of Texans figure out what DPS to go to, you drive 30 min to a small place, and there is no line.

Everyone who read this post and understood it, has at least 3 gifts, that are taken for granted:
1. gift of life
2. gift of intelligence
3. gift of Self-ness. I mean - Self-ness, I-ness, as being I/Self vs all the rest.


One who thinks about it, will understand, how immense those un noticed gifts really are.

What is there else to ask for?
