Step Into My Mind…

Christians are like Vampires May 18, 2010

Christians and Vampires? Can there be any more of an unrelated topic to one another? You may be asking yourselves this question. BUT, there is somethnig that I have discovered.

          I have already watched Twilight and New Moon, and I have read Twilight, some of New Moon, and some of Midnight Sun (I’m working on getting the whole series done soon). After all of this, something became very clear to me, particularly when I was reading Midnight Sun, which is essentially the book of Twilight from Edward Cullen’s perspective…

          It is so utterly fascinating when one reads from Edward’s perspective. It gives new insight and gives a fuller picture of how much he was truly struggling to not attack Bella and suck her delicious and warm blood right out of her.

          As I dove deeper into this concept of struggle that Edward experienced, I realized that this is a lot like what Christians experience. He eplained, in Midnight Sun, that when he first took a whiff of Bella’s scent, it hit him suddenly and unexpectedly. He had not taken a human life, due to his craving of their blood, for about 80 years, and now he was turning into that vicious monster that he despised. (more…)

I’m all about finding new music and I love it when I come across bands, or musicians that I have never heard other people talk about before. So, if you know these guys, then great…But either way, check out their songs.

I stumbled across these guys on YouTube the other day and I hope you guys love their stuff as much as I do…Here are three videos…

The Script – Break Even (Falling To Pieces)

I hope the title of my post stirs up fond memories in you, as it does for me.

Most of us, if not ALL of us know the story of King Arthur and the Round Table, and Merlin, and the good ol’ Sword in the Stone (Excalibur).

I’m Gonna Shine Homie Until My Heart Stop February 26, 2010

No this is not about the “Hate It or Love It” song by 50 Cent and the Game, this is about light.

       This is simply a post of encouragment for all of you Believers out there to fear not and to keep shinning your light. A lot of times we find ourselves in dark places and we ponder about this dark and corrupt world we live in which is filled with all kinds of wickedness and evil, and we tend to get overwhelmed at times and even begin to fear. It can also become a hindrance and even paralyze us from moving forward.

“I have had all I can stand” February 18, 2010

          This is a very recent story of an angry man named Joseph Stack (age 53). This story is too interesting and upsetting for me and I just have to post about it. You can get the full story about him here at this link: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_plane_crash_texas

          I write about him because he was a man like a lot of us, filled with a lot of anger and a feeling of hopelessness. In fact, he was so tired of life that he flew his single-engine Piper Cherokee into an International Revenue Service (IRS) building. It was a building that housed an IRS office and about 200 IRS employees.

Let’s Talk About Death Baby! November 30, 2009

If you have not noticed yet, I am fascinated by the subject of death (NOTE: I am not trying to minimize the pain and hurt someone feels when they have a loss, not at all. My heart and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones. It is so tough, that’s why I want to share this with you). It is such a deep and profound topic and we try to ignore or avoid it, yet it is inevitable. Why is it so difficult to talk about death when we know it is bound to happen to each and every one of us? Have you ever had a serious conversation with someone else about death….about your own death?

Oh Death, Where is your Sting? July 26, 2009

I’m sorry to inform you, but it’s alive and well!

Call_of_DeathPC 

When has death been something that does not hurt?
We grieve, we mourn, we are sorrowful, we are confused, we weep and wail, we wonder why, and it never really leaves us deep down inside. Somewhere inside, underneath all of life’s distractions, we know we are destined to be men and women of sorrow, because death does sting us and death does have victory over us. Whether Christian or Non-Believer, everybody dies…and everybody hurts when someone close to us dies as well. (more…)
