I am no longer a member here. I can read mail but cannot respond. I accepted Jesus Christ into my life almost 20 years ago. I am so thankful that He's the center. He's done a tremendous work in me, and I still have a long way to go. I don't see how I ever did it without Him. I can be goofy at times, but I also have a very thoughtful side--I think it's good to have roughly equal parts of both sides. There are so many worthwhile things to do, interesting people to meet, and cool places to explore that at times I find myself wishing I had many lifetimes to live. I enjoy lay ministry and feel that God would have me do full-time ministry at some point. I'm into bible study but am also aware that one must be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. I believe it's through the balance of study, relationship, and revelation that God speaks to us. I like to work-out and stay fit. I enjoy skiing, volleyball, bicycling and other activities. I like learning. I like to travel. I enjoy music and I love to praise God with my guitar. I love my family. I love my church and my church-family. I hope to find my best friend and lifelong companion. I feel that God has one person specifically in mind for me to marry, so I'm not in a hurry to make it happen on my own. I hope to be a great father and even grandfather some day. I'm looking for someone who is a communicator, someone willing to confront problems constructively as they arise; someone who will love God more than me, but nonetheless will love me dearly; someone I'll love second only to God, someone to give myself for as Christ did for His church. Someone who prays and understands the power of prayer.
