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.

Two Centimeters of Dilation
I got a phone call this morning - my wife informed me that even though her "due date" for our current pregnancy is not until February 12, and even though she has never, ever been early with our other three children - that she thought her water might be breaking.

She went into the doctors, and our doctor confirmed it - she is two centimeters dilated. The doctor told her to go home and sleep - and to call her later when things began to progress.

I know where I will be tonight - Lord willing - pray for us if you are inclined thus.

    You've probably mentioned it, but I didn't realize you were expecting. I'm in favor of that, just so you know. I hope all goes well. Breath!

    Daniel,
    I've been reading/lurking for awhile, but first comment. I live in Texas and we are expecting our first, the due date is Friday. My wife has been walking around with a 2 for 2-3 weeks now. Through our 12+ weeks of childbirth prep classes and experience we've learned that dilation is not an indication of labor starting. I say all this, not to burst your bubble (no pun intended), but to help you know that if nothing happens soon there is nothing wrong.

    I'll be praying for you, your wife and your other children. May God bless you with His protection and presense!

    Daniel,
    I hope everything comes out OK!

    No, really, I will pray for you, your wife and your three other little ones. Children are such a delight!

    Thanks all!

    I have a moment here for a quick update.

    Contractions are about 15 minutes apart. My wife is trying to catch a few z's while we wait it out.

    All the arrangements have been made for the kids long ago, it is sort of like clockwork this time. I even had the presence of mind to get someone to take over running our prayer meeting tonight!

    Continue praying, it should happen sometime tonight, or early in the morning.

    Grace!

    I'm praying for you - the three of you in labor and the three wee ones who are soon to be blessed with a new sibling. Such a miracle is the birth of a child.
    Thanks to Eve, I'll be praying for your wife's pain as well. Sorry, can't blame Eve for everything I know, but really. There she was, married to the most handsome man on the face of the earth. Didn't have to worry about laundry or cooking. But I digress...
    Praying for a blessed birth.
