Hello readers! Thank you for visiting my profile. I have not been a member since 2004, hence my pictures were taken about five years ago. Sorry I cannot initiate an email (although I think I can respond). Although I believe my "destiny" is in God's hands, I will most likely make another attempt through SCN in the future. I have worked in public service/education for over three decades. I've worn many hats at many levels. I am the proud father of four grown children through one marriage that ended nine years ago. As for the future, I plan to press forward in the Word and grow from the experience. Like most of us, I'm still a lump of clay; yet worthy through grace. On the lighter-side of things, I have a big heart with many people to love. I do, however, have a void that can only be filled by love and companionship from that "certain-someone". I enjoy family, music, comedy, coffee shops, cultural diversity, bible study, fellowship, learning channels (TV), and so on. I enjoy sports, but I don't spend my weekends in front of the TV. Sporty cars are fun as a hobby (own one now), but this fetish goes in cycles. I am currently enjoying an in-town-charmer with giant oaks, a full front porch, and a picket fence in the back yard. As for my "heart's desire", I am seeking someone who is very nice looking (relevant to age), warm hearted, enjoys children, compassionate, and thankful for all we have. She would approach daily life through faith and God-centered principles. (I'm not asking for too much am I?) If you feel even the slightest curiosity, let's test it. Please initiate an email with a picture of your smiling face and I'll take it from there. I'll try not to leave anyone hanging. Single life has enough trials. God bless and happy 2009.
