Proverbs 17:22….Laughter is good medicine:
I don’t get no respect. When I was born, the doctor slapped my mother—Rodney Dangerfield
Hi! My name is Dave Maynard. Thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to start a blog when I retired. At 65 years of age, and after walking with Jesus as my Savior for over 40 years, I feel I have learned a few things about life in general and the Christian life in particular. Whether any of this will impact your life…well, we’ll see.
My blogs will cover things relating to Christianity and some cultural issues. All will be viewed thru the lens of scripture. We’ll discuss ideas like:
-how to respond to ISIS
-when helping the poor hurts them
-what are your spiritual gifts and how do you use them
-are you planning your life or do you just let it happen to you
-are you preparing for life after you retire
-the mis-use of statistics, like the one that says the divorce rate is 50%
-should Christians support homosexuality and/or same-sex marriage
-supposed contradictions and hard sayings in the Bible
This is a fairly recent picture of me (cough, cough)…uummm, just a few years ago.
I am by no means an expert in these things, but let’s be honest….I am good looking (cough, cough), smart (cough, cough), humble, modest, etc., etc. (coughing spell kicks into high gear at this point). By sharing ideas and viewpoints, we can all learn new things that may impact our lives and, hopefully, other peoples also. I only ask that we be civil, polite and respectful in our conversations. Even if we disagree, it can be done courteously and with respect. I do reserve the right to delete any post that I deem as offensive or as a personal attack on someone.
I’ll write a new blog about every 2 weeks. By joining my blog, you’ll be able to comment and get notifications of when new blogs come out.
Of course I plan to sell your name and get gobs of money for it. You’ll be left with sleezy, fly-by-night companies constantly pestering you for money (said with tongue firmly planted in cheek). Don’t you just love sarcasm? I think it’s one of my spiritual gifts.
Once again, thanks for reading my blog. Let the fun begin.
For His Kingdom,
