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…)
College Life April 27, 2010
You are now entering the twilight zone (que the strange music)….
Welcome to the life of a college student, it looks something like this….
The Next Mozart! January 3, 2010
You will not believe what kind of talent this kid has, and amazingly enough she is a 6-year-old girl! =D
check her out, you’ll be shocked…and it’ll be a good idea to keep your eye open for this one in the future.
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?
My New Obsession November 5, 2009
I honestly hate to admit it, but oh Good God, I have a new obsession. Lord help me, this may be unhealthy. LOL
I was never interested before, well not to the point of actually going to watch it in the theatres, I even waited until it came out on DVD to actually rent and watch it.
You know what I’m talking about, TWILIGHT!
I Need You To Love Me. October 17, 2009
This is a song by Barlow Girl that has really been touching my heart for a long time now. Music does such a great job of reaching into your soul and spilling your guts out when you do not have the words yourself, at times.
This is one of those songs for me that I think a lot of us can relate to.
Oh Death, Where is your Sting? July 26, 2009
I’m sorry to inform you, but it’s alive and well!
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…)
Is It Really Fair-Trade? June 6, 2009
I know that this is a really important issue for many people and the truth of the pictures of what some Africans go through is horrific. Trafficking and Slave Labor have become major issues that have been on the rise for a long time now and many people, organizations, and churches have made it a resposibility and priority of theirs to raise awareness of these major issues in our lifetime. I personally am one of those people who will actively speak against slavery and will do my best to raise awareness, but my purpose here is to challenge what we’ve been thinking about it lately.
I Am Not A Hand, I Am A Foot! April 25, 2009
This is something that has been on my heart now for a long time. I had just been waiting for the opportunity and time to write it. I think that people generally have expectations for one another: expectations of how others will act, what others will say, what their roles are, and so forth. I believe that expectations are inevitable and can either be good or bad. I also believe that people should look within themselves and see what kind of expectations they place on others and if they are reasonable expectations or not.
Well, it seems that I (and supposedly many others) have let people down recently (or for a while now). People have expected me to be a HAND, when in reality I am NOT a HAND, I am a FOOT! This lanugage of hands and feet comes from the Bible where it talks about the Church being the Body of Christ and how we all have different parts…
3For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. 4Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. 7If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; 8if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. (NIV)
The Dr. Phil Show March 31, 2009
So, I went to the Dr. Phil show just last week with my Marriage and Family class. The show was about Hormones and the importance of having right hormonal balance when you get older. I won’t get into the details about that because that’s not what is important to me (At least not for now).
Anyways, What my short little topic is about is my friend Joey. After the show, Dr.Phil came out for a little Q&A session (which he never does, it was all a set-up) and eventually he called on my friend Joey. Joey got up and basically read lyrics to his girlfriend from their favorite song. Then he got down on one knee and proposed to her. They make a beautiful couple and I just want to say that i was freaking out the whole time because he told me before the show even started that he was gonig to do this. I’m so happy for them! =)
So, what my question to you readers is: How do you personally think you will know when it is the right time to propose to someone or when is it the right time to be proposed to? Do you have expectations of a certain amount of years before you can get engaged or things like that? Also, what is your ideal or dream proposal (location, time of day, how it’s done…etc) I REALLY want to hear what you all have to say!…
