Happy Day After Christmas!

We had a great Christmas which we spent with family and friends. I hope you did as well.

I want to note an addition to the personal links section on the blog. I have added a link to a new blog I am doing called "Take A Stand." I have often made it very clear what my spiritual (Christian) beliefs are in my blog entries this year. I don't regret that at all but I have slowly come to the conclusion that perhaps it is better for me to focus more freely on that in a separate blog. IR Haven should primarily be about interracial topics. There have been some blog entries where I was able to tie the two together and should that be possible in the future, I will do it. But I don't want to confuse anyone about what IR Haven is about...and I feel like those lines have been unintentionally blurred sometimes.

To further clarify, the fact that there is a new blog does not mean that IR Haven will not reflect my beliefs at all. Who I am has not changed and I think that will show through in what I write.

For those who enjoy the spiritually-focused posts, you can continue to enjoy them at Take A Stand on

If you have any questions, you can comment here or e-mail me at

Have a great weekend!

Best Wishes,

Christmas Gets Closer

Just a quick blog to let everyone know I'm okay. The Christmas program went well on Sunday and I am enjoying my new job. IR Haven joined a new webring (Multiracial Cultural & Mixed Race). I may add a few more if I can find appropriate webrings and code that works with the blog template (ah, technicalities).

Anyway, have a great day!

Best Wishes,

Christmas Time Is (Almost) Here

So I finished up my bout with the flu and began a new job this week.

I've also been preparing for our church's Christmas musical tomorrow. There's a dress rehearsal today so I don't have long to blog.

I'll blog more soon!

Best Wishes,

And Then There Was This Week...

Okay, so it's been a strange week. Following Thanksgiving, I got sick and then last Sunday, I somehow injured my left shoulder then Monday, my computer broke.

...but I'm okay.

Throughout the week, my shoulder has healed and my sickness has been letting up, little bit by little bit. And today, I got my computer back, its hardware repaired by my techno-superior bro-in-law. I had to go ahead and erase my hard drive and start over with my Windows 2000, but I had virtually all of our files backed up to CD.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is, even when things get bad, if you hang on -- and pray -- they will get better.

That's all for now. I'll blog more when I get some more time.

Best Wishes,
