I'm a fun guy -- at least I think so! My kids tell me I am. I enjoy a wide variety of activities. I'm as comfortable on a mountain bike as I am in a tux at the opera (OK, not quite -- I try to avoid texedos as much as possible). I stay in shape, watch what I eat (as it goes past my nose -- just kidding!) and stay active and fit. But more important than all that is I'm here on this earth to love and serve the Lord God, and to love and serve those whom He would call to Him -- which is everyone, if they'd just listen for His voice. Understand I'm not a fanatic, unless being a fanatic is living what I believe, realizing I'm not perfect and neither is anyone else, and being willing to admit when I'm wrong as well as lovingly helping others see how Jesus Christ can change them, if they want Him to do so. I'd like a woman in my life who is the same. Tall order, huh? No one said it would be easy.
Let's get the ugly stuff out of the way. I struggled with compulsive gambling about 13 years ago. That experience led me to Christ as my Savior and Lord. I have made bad decisions, walked my own walk, and fell flat on my face. God's grace and blessing is unlimited, however, and His gifts and callings are irrevocable. I knew He had called me to ministry the second day I was a Christian, but it took some time for me to respond. Today I am the clinical director at a Christian rehab center, and I serve on a Southern Baptist church staff as a counselor. I admit that I am time constrained. I bring the car around in the rain, open doors for women, call when I'm going to be late, and bring flowers for no apparent reason. I'm just an all-around good guy! Pardon me . . . I need to put a sling on my arm. Sprained it patting myself on the back. One other thing: My picture isn't much, but it is there. I'd like to see yours, too. Thanks, and God bless you.
