Howdy All -Please stop reading if you are in search of anything more than pure, unadulterated, Christian friendship. I have met someone with whom I am currently pursuing a relationship. So being said - A long overdue update!! I am ever so grateful to our Lord for blessing me and my family with the presence of a wonderful individual in our lives. The road is never easy - at least it has not been for me. I have experienced the hills and valleys of the dating realm and would not go back into that land for anything in this world. Praise God I will not have to do so. Over the years I have made many truly amazing friends all of whom have greatly enriched my life. God has been so faithful to me, even when I was my true prodigal self. For those of you still searching - may the Lord greatly bless upon your search, and I pray your time in the Great Physician's waiting room will not be long. For those of you considering giving up - as the song says "Hold fast!"Grace and peace in the name of our loving Saviour - Jesus the Christ's name!!! HD. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Following is my original message: I am a single parent of 3 amazing children and generally spend my time either doing my best to raise my children, working, spending time at church, in class at school or participating in some activity. To anyone who is saying "Wow! You have a lot on your plate" - please understand that I respect your opinion; however, we probably would experience some difficulty. I am flexible, understanding, patient, respect another's time/space, and have NO interest in changing another person - you are the way you are. As such, I seek the same in other people, and I am NOT "in search of" this or that. I am searching for someone to enjoy and share life with and do not believe that life should have to change just because 2 people find themselves walking down the same path. Our family, friends, interests, hobbies and experiences in life are what makes each one of us uniquely our own and the imperfectly perfect, yet perfectly made child of God.
