Message: Hello. It took me some time to write what I wanted. I know it's rather long, but I believe the more information up front the better. While I love adventure andtaking risks, affairs of the heart and spirit I guard closely. So here goes . . . Aboutme: I am a child of God, first and foremost. I strive to be a positive action-oriented person. I set goals and I stick to them. Don't get me wrong, I am human and my walk with Jesus hashad it's ups and downs, but then again, I am only human! That'swhen I rely on the word of God above all. Besides being a Child of God I am blessedwith the awesome responsibility of raising a Child of God. I have an incredible 14 year old son that is the joy of my life. We really have a great relationship and enjoy talking to each other. We are very open and honest about everything and I choose to devote my life to nurturing him from boy to man. I understand that unless his parents, mentors, and those other influential people in his life carefully refine hisnatural instincts - the physical, emotional, spiritual and social life of my son can beconsumed by the world. Integrity is paramount in our lives. My favorite bible verse is: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to god. And the peace that passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds, in Jesus Christ" (Philippians 4:6-7) I try to remember this verse whenever I can and most certainly whenever I need to. I have chosen to be in relationships where I have not been true to myself or to the expectations God has of me as a Godly Woman. (Basically unequally yoked. ) Since then, I took the focus of the man and asked God to teach me how to be a Godly woman and a Godly wife. This was the most fulfilling lesson of my life. . What I am in prayer for is the man that chooses to fulfill God's willing being the leader of our household and treat me the way Christ treated the church, a mature Christian who understands the difference between being that "leader" and being in "control". God has worked on my spirit so much I the past few years that I don't fear the word submission and actually can't wait for the time that God has for me to become that woman. So every morning I present my requests to God, and wait. I became a Christian many years ago, as a young lady; but it wasn't until about 6 or 7 years ago that I began to foster and feed the one on one relationship I have with my Lord and Savior. I compromised this when I married a man who did not have the same viewsabout Christianity (and marriage) as I did. This created many problems for us, but ultimately a breach in respect, loyalty, and dishonesty caused the marriage to come to an end. Now, for the fun stuff. I love to camp and fish. I have fished with my father most of my life and still do when I can. I love being in nature. I learned to appreciate even the smallest things in God's raw, natural beauty from my Grandmother. I have a very close-knit family. I have been blessed with amazing parents who live in Puerto Vallarta right now, and I miss them terribly. So, family is a priority in my life. As is time with friends, my son and that special someone. I love to travel and sight see. I've done sometraveling; Egypt (because that's where we're from) Japan, Taiwan, Hawaii, PuertoRico and Tahiti. And of course, many cities in Mexico. I love the spontaneity of packing up the SUV (X-Terra) on a Friday night and just going from one small town to another in Arizona. I am very casual. I prefer to dress casual whenever I can, butI also take care to look the best I can no matter what I am wearing or where I amgoing. I love dogs, and have always had them. I love going to the theatre andlistening to music. I love going to dive bars with live music and jukeboxes playing various styles of music. But I don't venture too much into that scene anymore. Especially, being single. In addition I am very happy with the simple things in life. I do not have to be wined and dined, nor do I expect to be spoiled with materialistic"stuff" ( Not that I wouldn't take it under the right circumstances) I just want to beloved and cherished, (a childhood dream) . Going on walks, holding hands, intimateconversation, praying and reading the word together and of course, attending Church together, are the more cherished moments in my life. Oh yeah, I love to playboard games, go to amusement parks and carnivals! I am a nurturer and want to adore the right one, and I expect the same in return. I want to meet my best friend, then let God take it where it will go. I am thankful for the many blessings God hasgiven me. I am a caring and compassionate person. I love good, honest deep conversation and have often been told I am a good listener. I state things like they are, but always with love. To sum it up, I am a Christian who wants people to see Christ in me. I want to inspire people to be the best they can. I strive to learn more every day, am laid back, but can be serious. I am open about my feelings and opinions, passionate about life. Loyal, honest and above all, committed. I am loyal to the end. I give it and expect it in return. I want to touch lives and change hearts for God. Now, what am I looking for? First and foremost a Man of God. As I mentioned before; a man that chooses to fulfill God's will in being the leader of our household and treating me the way Christ treated the church, a mature Christian who understands the difference between being that "leader" and being in control". Someone who will be my best friend, a man who lives for Christ, and, because I have a child, someone who is willing to have the heart of a father and a husband all at once. Someone who already has children would be ideal. I am seeking someone who is honest, trustworthy, dependable and stable. Someone who will cherish me. A man who, no matter what trials are presented to him, keeps God at his side and seeks his guidance. And relies on me for the same. Someone who also wants to serve in the church and community. A man with un-compromised compassion for others. Someone mature, fun, flexible and patient. Above all a man who puts family first (next to God, of course. ) Someone who has good morals and can be humble. A man who is aware that "love" is not just a feeling, but a commitment; knows that actions speak louder than words. I like a true gentleman, who knows how to treat and respect the women in his life. Having a gentle heart, and emotional depth, always putting Christ at the center of our relationship. Okay, there it is. . . all out and on the line. If you want to learn more, then I hope I hear from you soon. God Bless.
