With the New Year RIGHT around the corner, I figured this would be an appropriate time to share a little poem I wrote. Also, this blog is dedicated in memory of my dear friend and brother in Christ, Haig Diradourian, who passed away on December 23, 2010. You are deeply loved and missed. I write in hopes that you will all learn from Haig’s life and death and appreciate your own lives and the lives of others around you… (more…)
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.

“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.
