Interested in meeting someone who is serious about his relationship with Jesus Christ. . . . one who understands the importance of following the Lord's leading and direction. A man that is HONEST. . SINCERE. . . and not afraid to share his HEART with others. Someone who is expressive in his views and feelings. One who understands that communication is key to a good relationship. He would allow the Lord to live thru him and desires the best for others while he lovingly helps them to recognize their value. I appreciate a generous and kind hearted person. He would be a person who practices good hygiene and takes an interest in his physical body.
Some activities I enjoy are dance and brisk walking for physical exercise. Walking/hiking scenic trails for enjoyment. . . exploring new places that reflect the beauty of God's creation. I love the outdoors. Enjoy going to festivals, concerts in the park, quaint little villages and towns. Indepth bible study, dining in or out with friends and family are some of the things I truly enjoy. My home is well kept and attractive I am able to adapt to whatever budjet I'm working with. My background is in art/graphic arts. . . most recent work however involves selling p/t in a ladies boutique dress shop.
I've have been faced with some very difficult circumstances in my life and I've learned that with God you can face even the most trying times. I am in touch with the reality that our lives here on this earth are temporal, we need to keep the big picture in mind, we are all on a journey to eternity. The Lord has given me a desire to know Him and study His word. I have a deep interest in bible prophecy and enjoy searching out the truths of scripture. I also believe that in order to get the full meaning of scripture it must be understood in context. . . . I don't follow the name it and claim it crowd. . . neither do I believe the popular prosperity message. . . . don't believe in replacement theology. . . . . And I'm certainly not religious. I'm just a Christian who makes the effort to carefully study the scripture for myself. I meet regularly with others for bible study and we openly discuss scripture seeking the Lord's guidance and wisdom for understanding. Scriptures that I try to focus on. . . . . . . . . 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 This chapter speaks of the importance to keep love as a top priority "Though I speak with tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I AM NOTHING. Love the following chapters in Job. . . . speaks of the majesty of our Creator. chapters 38-41 The LORD Speaks. . . . . . I am very blessed with 2 wonderful sons. . . beautiful daughter-in-laws and 5 grandchildren. . . . born/raised in New York. Moved to beautiful northeast TN 14 years ago. Thanks for stopping by. God Bless, Maria
