The song "Who I Am" by Jessica Andrews is a pretty accurate, albeit brief, description of me. It's taken a few decades but I'm finally comfortable and quite happy in my own skin. I've tried living life my way and have discovered that it's only goingto work to my benefit if I hand the reigns over to God. He has held me for many years but only within the last year and a half have I actually stopped to say thank you and made a point of trying to be worthy of Jesus's amazing gift and sacrifice. I've returned to college trying to walk down the path I think he is leading me. I'm working on a BFA in Art Studio with a sculpture and photography double concentration. I'm more comfortable in a workshop or studio in jeans with the music too loud than behind a desk, but having been in the business world for many years, I can do the business suit or heels and pearls as needed. I am an idealist and a romantic; and a sincere, empathetic, habitually late, distractible artist. I love to laugh and fluctuate between very dry humor, cornball comments, and witty sarcasm. I love the outdoors, especially anything on the water, but don't have time to enjoy it much. I love to work out and swim, but, again, haven't managed to squeeze it into a regular schedule. I have two beautiful and amazing boys that you may meet but will probably not spend any time with unless a relationship is pretty serious. I have no desire to bring people into their lives temporarily and set them up for pain and loss. My perfect companion would place God first and foremost in their life. Seriously, not the kind that shows up in church and acts with saintly appearances to the world but has not truly humbled himself and taken Jesus into his heart. He'd have the mind of a 45 yr old and the body of a 20 yr old, the face and heart of an angel and the sensuality of a devil. (I am still human) That aside, his hands would be gentle and his eyes, honest. Mischievous but trustworthy; strong and masculine on the outside while genuine and emotionally balanced on the inside. A love of music, laughter, art, photography, travel, exploration, dancing, cooking, the outdoors, and the beach would make the PERFECT package complete. A healthy dose of patience might be of benefit as well. Since none of us are perfect, I could be persuaded to reevaluate my preferences if you think you're the one that could do it. Honestly, it won't be you doing it, I'm trying my best to only listen to God from now on and he may surprise me by sending me someone I would never have picked on my own. Oh yeah, one last thing, one day I aspire to be "A Noble Wife" but at the moment I'm happy being his work in progress. At the moment I'm not a paying member, so communication is realistically near impossible. Then again, we're all here because we believe in a man that can do miracles!
