Hi. My name is Bruce and I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. My wife’s name Is Peggy and together we raised five children. I spent 35 years in the Canadian Armed forces, 31 plus years with the Reg Force and 4 plus with the Reserves. I worked another 19 years in private industry as an IT Administrator. I became a Christian in my mid twenties and this blog presents me with the opportunity to share some of the things that I have learned along the way. I don’t pretend to know all the answers, a dear Christian friend of mind once said that the closer we get to God the more we realize how little we know and I could not agree more. However, there are milestones and there have been events in my life that have clarified some of the issues we have to deal with as we walk through this journey called life.Some of them I will share, at other times I will write about things that catch my attention and express my opinion. We are indeed fortunate to live in a country where we can express our opinions. The general rule of thumb that I follow is that I should be free to express my opinions and exercise my rights as long as I do not infringe on the rights of others to do likewise. Consequently, respect for each other as a fellow traveler and the subsequent respect for each of our opinions is paramount to any discussion. I shall do my utmost to respect yours and I would ask that you do likewise.
I am a follower of Christ. The Apostles Creed pretty well spells out where I stand on doctrine. I believe that Jesus was and is the Son of God and our Heavenly Father’s answer to our separation from Him. I believe that it is through Christ’s atonement for us on the cross that we are saved and that is accomplished through faith in His work, not our own. Welcome to Bruce’s Weblog. I look forward to hearing from others and trust this will be an experience of worth.
Oh yes, almost forgot. If you like the posting you read, click on “Like” and if you would like to receive more of the same, consider “Following”. Blessings!

    Hi Bruce,

    This is my first visit to your site. Looks great and from what I see, very edifying. I look forward to visiting more frequently.

    I just started a blog, theguiltybystander.wordpress.com. I find your refreshing and will read all the entries in time and offer appropriate responses- right now I’m a bit busy on the Obama campaign.

    Thanks for your insights

  3. Bruce says:

    Thanks for the feedback Jim, I visited your site also, although I am not a Roman Catholic, I can at least understand your frustration and sympathize with you. I also share your apparent enthusiasm with respect to Obama. God bless.

    I am curious about people who are Christians. would you be kind enough to discuss your beliefs with me?

    ‘I believe that it is through Christ’s atonement for us on the cross that we are saved and that through faith in His work, not my own’

    What exactly do you feel saved from?

    Bruce, I found your blog through Brandon Adams’ blog about the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. I truly appreciate your points in this regard and am thankful that the Lord has used it to speak to me and others. I invite you to consider spending time at The Ruminant Scribe, at lindamowles.com. I pray it would be encouraging to you as yours was to me. Blessings to you today and throughout the year. Linda

  6. Hello, I have been reading several of your posts and I like the amount of work and study you put into it. I would like for you to write a guest post on my blog, please let me know if you’re interested and I’ll send more details. Vanessa

    • Bruce says:

      Hi Vanessa, thank you, it would be my pleasure. Just let me know what you would like and we’ll do our best. Blessings.

      • Thank you. I’ve asked other bloggers to write on what worship means them. What verse/ chapter/ situation from the Bible signifies worship to you? How do you make God a priority in your life, and how do you recognize His presence in your life?

        You can write whatever length (of post)that you are comfortable with.

        Deadline, if it works with your schedule, by the end of May please. If not, let me know what your earliest availability is.

        Thank you once again. Vanessa

      • Bruce says:

        Hi Vanessa, that should be fine. I work 5 days every 14 and today and tomorrow are two of them but I should be able to manage. Do you want me to send it to you in an email and you will just copy and paste? Blessings.

      • Yes that would be great. I’d also like a short bio of yourself and a picture (of you) that you’re willing to share. You’re more than welcome to give me a featured image to use, or I will find one. I also include a Christian song at the end (one that glorifies God / mentions Him by name).

        Thank you again.

      • Bruce says:

        Hi Vanessa, I sent the post and other items you requested to your email address, please let me know if you received it. Thanks

      • Bruce says:

        Hi Vanessa, could you send me your email address so that I can send you the post and items you requested. Please send it to bruce.planbsolutions@gmail.com
        Thank you.

  7. I did receive it this morning. Thank you for sending the post to me so quickly. Have a great weekend.

  8. The post is beautifully written

  9. Novia Scotia, Anne of Green Gables country! What a nice area. I’ve been reading around you blog, and love it. I’m especially enjoying the Tabernacle series!! Blessings on you and your family, from Italy!

    • Bruce says:

      Thanks Sheila, we’re just common Christians, like you and Mario, although I’m thinking you’ve spent a bit more time in the vineyard than we have. God is good.
