Profile
Daniel of Doulogos Name:Daniel
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
About Me: I used to believe that evolution was reasonable, that homosexuality was genetic, and that people became Christians because they couldn't deal with the 'reality' that this life was all there was. I used to believe, that if there was a heaven - I could get there by being good - and I used to think I was more or less a good person. I was wrong on all counts. One day I finally had my eyes opened and I saw that I was not going to go to heaven, but that I was certainly going to suffer the wrath of God for all my sin. I saw myself as a treasonous rebel at heart - I hated God for creating me just to send me to Hell - and I was wretched beyond my own comprehension. Into this spiritual vacuum Jesus Christ came and he opened my understanding - delivering me from God's wrath into God's grace. I was "saved" as an adult, and now my life is hid in Christ. I am by no means sinless, but by God's grace I am a repenting believer - a born again Christian.

The Buzz


Daniel's posts are almost always pastoral and God centered. I appreciate and am challenged by them frequently. He has a great sense of humor as well.
- Marc Heinrich

His posts are either funny or challenging. He is very friendly and nice.
- Rose Cole

[He has] good posts, both the serious like this one, and the humorous like yesterday. [He is] the reason that I have restrained myself from making Canadian jokes in my posts.
- C-Train

This post contains nothing that is of any use to me. What were you thinking? Anyway, it's probably the best I've read all day.
- David Kjos

Daniel, nicely done and much more original than Frank the Turk.
- Jonathan Moorhead

There are some people who are smart, deep, or funny. There are not very many people that are all 3. Daniel is one of those people. His opinion, insight and humor have kept me coming back to his blog since I first visited earlier this year.

Thirty Nine Years...
I don't know the girl holding the sign - but if you do a google image search for "Happy Birthday Dan" she is the second picture that comes up; I liked the effort she put into the little sign, so I thought I would go with it.

I turned 39 yesterday (Tuesday) - and as my birthday gift I got to replace the printer for my computer and shovel 60 ft. of driveway out from under two feet of snow. It was a fun day though.

Last year we put up our Christmas tree on my birthday - and decided to make it an annual event. So this year, I took the day off of work, and we put the tree up. As it happened, it began snowing on Monday night, and so we woke up to a winter landscape. Nice touch Lord!

Anyway, I am pretty busy this week with church business, so I don't expect I will have too much time to post. Maybe just a quick one each day - we'll see.

    Hi Daniel,
    Stumbled onto your blog today. I'll be back around sometime. Enjoy your new snow. Until this next cold front comes through (in the next few hours) we are still high 60's in Virginia!

    Blessings,
    Derek

    Can I say happy birthday even if I'm not pretty? Well, happy birthday. 39 is not old. No, sir, not at all. Neither is 40.

    Hey Daniel, congrats on achieving another milestone. You are approaching one of the most important numbers in scripture, the number of testing. I think of King Asa who in the 39th year of his reign became diseased in his feet. May the Lord keep your walk fresh and living as you daily humble yourself to take His grace. Missed your posts on the past couple of days.

    God bless,
    Jim

    Dan,

    I'm late, so Happy Unbirthday!

    You'll have to take a photo of the snow for those of us who rarely see 2 feet of it outside a ski area. It was an unseasonably cold 31 degrees here in Portland this week. (It's since warmed back up to a comfortable 45. :-)
