Greetings. Well, it is so easy to put flowery words in profiles to impress every one, but God really sees what we are like behind closed doors when no one is looking. And I guess that describes who I am in a nut shell in that the fruit of character to me far out ways a persons gifts and achievements in life. I fall short of this daily but would like others to think of me and to be remembered as one who brings a warm smile to a lonely or hurting heart, is able to show compassion, mercy and grace, loves to sing and bring laughter into someones day, is able to encourage others with a word of faith and hope and someone who can portray the love of God wherever she goes. I have a 'world view' and as my 4 sons have left home except for one who 'hangs around' sometimes for food and computer. . . . . I am available to wherever God would lead as I know He sees the bigger picture. I have two small grandchildren who are gorgeous and another on the way. I just adore being in the outdoors. . . . . lakes, rivers, beaches and mountains. Have started ballroom dancing which is really rewarding and want to move on to latin as well. I have started yachting with WOW. . . . Women on Water and have lots to learn but loving it. And women can enjoy fishing too. . . lol. . . . so I get real excited when I feel that "weight" wriggling on the end of my fishing line ! I enjoy travel and the many different cultures and have thankfully seen more of the world than the average person. . . . hope to do more of that with someone and would love to help the orphans and widows in some way. I can not live without music each day and love all types not just Christian. I am looking for a man who puts God first in all his ways in word and deed, is free from unforgiveness/bitterness towards others, knows how to treat a woman (for I would treat him with high respect and adoration), is not controlling and self absorbed and is a cheerful funloving passionate, spontaneous man, who like myself, enjoys to reach out to others as a couple with a strong marriage and romantic love that seeks the highest good for the other. Like one preacher said. . . . . Christians have to learn to 'chill out' and not be so serious. The world should not be beholding sour lemons !! Ha ha. Thanks for reading this profile. . . Hope I get to read yours as well. . . after all. . . we are all so special in His eyes are we not. PS. . . Come and visit New Zealand. . . I have seen alot of the world but we are truly blessed here to have one of the most beautiful countries. I am involved in the travel and tourism industry which is so rewarding. God bless. PS I am not a paying member on this site at this stage any longer sorry but they do inform me of incoming mael.
