I am a CLASSY WOMAN with a tender heart for God. I am very open & honest but spiritually, emotionally, & intellectually complex. Being a Christian defines who I am, what I live for, my hopes and dreams, the innermost chambers of my heart and mind. Iam living to be conformed to the image of Christ, continually falling on my knees before the throne of Grace and am humbly His child. I BELIEVE THAT GOD'S BEST IS STILL IN MY FUTURE AND I WILL WAIT ON THE LORD TO BRING THE MAN INTO MY LIFE WHO WILL COMPLETE ME. (Even though my former unrepentant spouse initiated the divorce, I had "Biblical grounds". ) A MAN WHO LOVES THE LORD MORE THAN HE LOVES ME AND DOES NOT ALLOW HIS FOCUS TO GET OFF OF HIS FIRST LOVE! "A man after the Lord's Own Heart" who honors His calling in life. I NEED A GODLY HERO! Per Pastor Bill Hybels, "HEROES ARE PEOPLE WHO FIND GOD'S WILL FOR THEIR LIVES AND ARE FULLY DEVOTED TO THROWING THEMSELVES INTO IT!"I desire to be in a relationship with a man of integrity who seeks the Lord daily to discern the difference between the Lord's will and his own heart's desires. I WANT NOTHING LESS than to be his heart's only earthly desire, one in spirit, diverse but complimentary in opinions & interests, best friends, passionately but purely loved, cherished & appreciated for who I really am. I believe in courtship & look forward to responding to someone who writes from the heart to me & showers me with gifts of love & adoration & I will wholeheartedly respond in like manner. I am looking for honesty, GRACE, openness & transparency, but most of all, commitment, safety & trust so that all those things can exist. How a friend described me: "Now that I have met you and have talked to you face to face, had a chance to see your killer smile and how charming you are. . . I was very much touched by the warmth of your personality. You have a kind spirit. It's hard to notice that when we chat (online) or even talk on the phone. I really enjoy talking to you. You make me feel at ease. You are very sincere, I watched how you mother your girls, you are loving (towards them) . You are under a lot of strain and I commend you for how you are handling it. When you get to heaven you are going to have a lot of jewels in your crown. I really think you are quite a wonderful gal. Vickie, you have touched my heart. "Another friend commented: ". . . in a photo your wonderful personality doesn't come across. You are very dynamic and positive which is very attractive. "I am often asked what I am most passionate about. . . I am passionate about life!!! Authentic Christianity - living and serving the Lord with a pure heart and fellowshipping with others who are like-minded. "Presenting every person complete in Christ" (Colossians 1:28) has been my purpose in life since going to Angeles Crest Christian Camp in High School. . . Encouraging others to truly know and understand themselves as the Lord designed them in light of their being conformed to the image of Christ. Worshipping Jesus Christ as Lord! Intimate communication (spiritual, intellectual and emotional verbal intimacy) with others. . . raising my girls to honor and love the Lord first (despite their daddy falling away from his first love), romance, DANCING at SanDiegoWannaDance, fellowshiping at the East County Christian Singles Group at Sonrise Church in Santee & the Single Purpose Group at Northcoast Church in Vista, Victoriana, heritage roses and gardens, chocolate, etc. LOL! :) I guess that I am passionate about everything that is important to me. I am very affectionate but PURE IN HEART: NO PREMARITAL SEX! I WANT TO LOVE WITH THE RECKLESS ABANDON AND BE LOVED THE SAME JUST ONE MORE TIME IN MY LIFE. IF YOU ARE A CHRIST-HONORING MAN WHO WILL ABSOLUTELY "TAKE MY BREATH AWAY"? AND MAKE ME "MELT" . . . AND PROTECT OUR PURITY WHILE RENDERING ME "TOTALLY DEFENSELESS" . . . sigh. . . PLEASE WRITE. May the Lord richly bless you as you seek Him for the desires of your heart! Psalm 37:4. . . Joyfully in Jesus, Vickieps. I am not a paid member and cannot write to you. I used to be able to reply to messages that members sent to me but that perk has been taken away recently even though the membership agreement does not state this. I am able to send "Halos" in response. . . Seek and Ye shall find! LOL!
