I'm a born again believer, a Briggs-Meyers (Meyers-Briggs??) INTP-- thoughtful, somewhat introspective person who enjoys my thought life where often I'm creative. I like to write, love animals, especially dogs, enjoy one (small) dog in the house, cats or so-so. I enjoy one-on-one activities, deep conversations, day trips, a good movie, live theater, the symphony, RiverDance, even ballet, board games, chess, UpWords, Rummikube, pinochle, (bridge years ago), stuff like that, and some TV (favorite is NCIS). Enjoy some sports -- NBA, tennis, figure skating, gymnastics, even occasionally NFL (where I DO know what the game is about). And I'm not a shopper?just do not enjoy that.
I'm tactile, affectionate, love togetherness, passion?all the things God created a man and woman to be to each other. You are the apple of my eye, companion, best friend, confidant, iron sharpening iron. Music is important to me. I play flute in my church orchestra, and am one of few who are not professionals. Also play piano and teach the Bible Study for the care home where I minister each Sunday afternoon. Still working, purpose-driven, wanting a life partner also with Godly purpose. Money . . . has come and gone twice. I've known affluence and poverty, and right now have neither. I am purpose driven and happy most of the time, but at the end of the day, there's a void?one that only a Godly companion can fulfill, one to share the rest of this life together. Candidly ? I need to lose some weight?my photo is very recent. Perhaps you share this sometimes age-related hazard. Whether you do or don't, I'd love to have a walking partner, and would faithfully perform the disciplines to regain the svelte profile I enjoyed for so many previous years of my life. If we share this in common, you understand what I'm saying. Divorced (last) since 1990, I harbor no ill toward any past relationship. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. " As I released those issues to Him, God healed me and made me whole many years back, from my choices. I know who I am in God, and what my life in Him is for and about. I've not always been able to say that, but maturity has been my dear friend. As I have progressively discovered who God is, in Him, I have also found who I am. It's not just about our good deeds or the bad ones we abstain from. David in the Psalms said something to the effect, "If Thou, O Lord, should count iniquities, who could stand?" Certainly not me! I am a simple but grateful recipient of His ongoing grace.
I'm looking for someone imperfect like me, who will pray together, grow spiritually with me, and not be threatened by my quiet strength. Kindness, intelligence, common sense ? appeal to my human side. There aren't many men who fit all this description. But I'm seeking just one. If you think that might be you, or maybe you feel the urge to just engage one another in communication and friendship and enrich each of our lives, then I'd love hearing from you. Until then, be blessed. Praying that God leads each of us to that perfect one He has been preparing us for
