Welcome to my little corner of the world. The Lord reached into my heart and visited me with His glorious salvation in 1982. Since then it has been an awesome journey as He has led the path of my life. I love the Lord Jesus Christ withall my heart, soul, mind and strength. I never cease to be amazed that I am secure in the hands of the One and only true and living sovereign God of all creation--that my life is hid with Christ in God. By His grace and mercy I know the eternal Creator and He is producing His character in me daily. Awesome! Jesus Christ and the Word of God are truly the central focus of my life. I'm hopeful that the Lord has a wife for me. A godly woman who yearns to learn more about the Word daily and grow together with me spiritually. My best friend, confidante, co-heir in Christ, helpmate, other half, and companion to walk hand-in-hand together with through life. Should the Lord bless me with a wife, I will cherish her as a blessing, treasure her as more precious than rubies and love her as Christ also loved the church. I will strive to love and honor her in accord with passages such as Col. 3:19, I Pet. 3:7, and Eph. 5:25-29. I am a genuine, mature Christian who is totally open and honest, trustworthy, loyal, reliable, dependable, communicative, easy to talk to, totally faithful, in excellent health, emotionally and financially stable, humorous, well grounded in the Word and partake of the inner joy and peace that only Christ can provide. Self-promotion sure is difficult, but I promise you that I can provide references, both paid and unpaid. :) Please do not feel limited by the age range that I indicated on the profile. It was selected almost randomly. I try to live in accord with the Word and live my life day-by-day waiting for the Lord's return at any moment. None of us have any guarantee that we'll be here for one second more. So, I wouldn't want to miss out on the one that the Lord has for me due to a few years measured in terms of temporal time. Plus, the longer one has been a Christian hopefully the more they have matured as a believer and are better equipped to be a godly spouse and/or parent. I love my job and see it as a mission field. I have a magnificent dog. I am adventurous and enjoy life to the fullest in a godly way. I love to laugh and make others laugh. I'm definitely a giver and not a taker. Some of the things that I enjoy include hiking with my dog, traveling, boating, fishing, basking in my spa gazing at the moon and stars while being awed by God's creation, many sports, working out, American history, the simple things in life, and spending time with family and friends making memories. I spend many hours weekly studying the Word. Well, I've given you a little glimpse into my heart. Please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have. I believe that God is totally sovereign and prefer to take things at His pace and seek His will. I hope that you prayerfully are led to write to me. Be adventurous- don't be afraid to take a chance if you are so led. I believe that if the Lord's hand is in it that distance is not a problem. I promise to make you laugh and think, but a marriage we have to make together. :)I hope that you enjoyed your visit to my little corner of the world and that if it be the Lord's will you'll stay. By God's marvelous grace, Mark Eph. 2:8-10 P. S. My membership recently expired, so I currently can't send emails. Otherwise, I would respond to every email even if only as a matter of Christian courtesy. P. P. S. In this world of supermarket style internet dating the Lord has recently placed me in a wonderful, beautiful, intelligent, humorous, godly woman's shopping cart and I'm praying that we make it together to the checkout. I'm enjoying the ride. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Canooooolli!
