My desire is to be closer to Jesus, even more so as 'The Day' (of His coming) approaches. He has been faithful to me, and I am so grateful for Him, His tender love and great sacrifice. Though I was raised a Christian, I [actually] got saved [as a flower child :)] during the "Jesus Movement" thirty yrs ago. Been writing songs since I was around 8. One of my greatest joys is to sing to Him--or about Him. I am very evangelical, and see all of life as a mission field. I'm pretty much down-to-earth, and enjoy the simple things of life. Friends say I'm sincere, tenderhearted and nurturing. My heart is soft toward the hurting. I value much a keen sense of humor. I enjoy anything creative or artistic. I love the outdoors, gardening, and the smell of the soil. Some other things I enjoy are: museums, antiques, the arts, garage sales, day trips, auctions, and flea markets, etc. I just finished writing a Christian allegory novel and have also written children's books. Though the Lord primarily gives me Christian songs for which to minister, I have a Vietnam memorial ballad published in the US Congressional Record, among other publications. I hope someday, God will lead to me a man who is in love with and fully committed to Jesus. I'm waiting for my beloved. . . my best friend--someone tenderhearted, kind, and not easily angered. Someone I can trust with my deepest heart--and one who will hide his heart in mine. One who desires to daily lay aside the sin that so easily besets, mature in the Lord. My heart longs for someone who will cherish and honor his lady, and will love her as Jesus was example, not lording it over her as is the manner of some. A man of humility, who understands that true headship is servanthood--and who understands that there's nothing as strong as gentleness. Someone has been sweetened by the winnowing cross of Jesus.
