Looking for a man to be my best friend and hopefully my help/soul-mate. . . . okay i'll tell you more. I love to laugh, I love my family and friends and care deeply for those that I am closest to. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters and my parents have been married for 39 years. I am upbeat, and a very positive, optimistic person. I love the Lord with all my heart and strive to be closer and to know him more daily. I am so far from perfect but very open to correction from God and others. I try my best to be a christian witness as I feel that this is very important. Others need to see God's grace and love in our lives. I have been on many mission trips around the world and would like to always be involved in short term missions. I am honest, sensitive and I have a good sense of humor and usual make others laugh. Often because I am ditsy, naive or clumsy but I can laugh at myself. Finally - I am a diehard romantic still praying that my prince is out there to romance me. Chivalry didn't go out with the 50's - did it? I love great conversation, long walks or bike rides, the beach, mountains, sunsets, love notes, a kind word, flowers, a hug, the beach, a rainy day, running in the rain, apples, working out, most sports and watching sports, roller coasters - especially the wooden rickety ones that sound and feel like they are falling apart, dancing, country music - and christian, classical, even some pop, blue grass, and worship music - convertibles, motorcycles, and cars- especially Volkswagons and trucks, fixing things, reading, writing in my journal, or writing poetry. I love children and more. And I love my bulldog Sampson even though he snores loudly sometimes but maybe God is preparing me for my husband. . . And I have so much love in my heart to give to the man that captures my heart. Whoever he is I have been praying for you for a long time. And will love you forever, through thick and thin, and be there to cheer you on and pray for you, and laugh with you and hold you when you cry, and grow closer to God everyday with you by my side. . . not to mention that I want to try sky-diving but not until you can be there to cheer me on and give me a hug afterwards.
