Introduction

I would like to meet a Christian lady who puts God first and our relationship second. A lady who is committed and willing to be totally honest so we can have an intimacy in our relationship that only comes with that level of trust. I would like someone who likes to travel and loves nature and is a romantic, loves to hug and kiss and hold hands, and just be friends and lovers.

Essays

What I'd like to do on a first date...

On a first date, meet somewhere and just spend some time getting acquainted and seeing if we like each others personality and have things in common. But later, so many things could be great, but it would have to be very romantic. Pick a warm, full-moon night and go to the beach or to a lake, have a table set up with candles and flowers, a friend to play a violin, dressed in a tux, (he would disappear after playing some romantic music) Italian food, and afterwards a walk in the moonlight hold hands. Yummm! Smile! But I have a lot of other ideas also.

My past relationships have taught me...

Past relationships have taught me that I must always be willing to work out problems and that honesty and integrity are two of the most important characteristics in life. If I were to take 9 characteristics that I am looking for in a future mate, they would be in this order. The middle ones could shift around a little because they are so close at times. Here goes. (1) Spirituality (2) Authenticity (3) Character (4) Appearance (5) Chemistry (6) Creativity (7) Personality (8) Intelligence and (9) Ambition. Now don't read these wrong because I like an intelligent woman with a great personality and who is creative, especially in romance. Smile

To me, being an Adventist means...

Being a seventh-day adventist means a lot to me. If this were not so, why would I have chosen to be a pastor for 30 years. Smile! I was born an adventist, but like most had to make a choice eventually if it was for me. I see the faults in the church but also see the truths of the Bible being taught in this my faith. I have been a pastor for 30 years and pastored in Ohio, Indiana, Arizona, Hawaii, Alaska, Peru and California.

In five years, I see myself

I retired from the ministry in 2005. I still preach once or twice a month and have been doing some traveling. Just got back from 3 weeks in the Philippines in March, 2009. Went there to enjoy my hobby of bird watching. So my retirement is full. I have been to over 50 countries and all 50 states. I want to see a lot more of this fantastic world that God created.

My favorite Bible passage is...

I have several Bible passages. When I retired, my church gave me a plaque for being their pastor for the past 12 years. On it was a text that they tell me I used all the time. Smile. It was Isaiah 40:31 and says, "Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." On the very next page of my Bible is another favorite, Isaiah 41:10, which says, "Do not fear for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." In the NT, my favorite is 1 John 1:9

One final thing I'd like to mention...

I will add more as I meet someone. I have no problem talking. Smile
