Introduction

Photography has been my interest since a California born youngster. Mom had SDA roots. Father, an Atheist. After their 7 years, divorce. Four children now lived only with mother. She never remarried and did the best she knew how. I loved her dearly. She passed in 2004.

High school and Jr College teams tennis player. Army medic draftee, 1970. B.S., Art, 1976 Pacific Union College. Born again in 1978 while working as a graphic designer at Pacific Press Publishing. Lots of moving here and there details through to 1995 when I stumbled upon the Missouri Ozarks. Liked the country living refresh over my California stressed city lifestyle. So stayed. Again much detail through all the years. Engaged once in 1994. But the Lord was merciful and that was short lived. Peaceful ending. I hate negative drama. I prefer fun.

Christ and him crucified. God has purpose for each one of us. There is no end to our story if we are truly united with His kingdom. So I know my commission is to go tell others. This is why I have no earth bound goals or aspirations other than doing the best I can muster in the strength of God unto His glory. I covet no applause but only a well done from my Savior. Of course it is nice to be earthy appreciated.

One day at a time. The life God has gifted us with is nothing less than an adventure. We do not know what tomorrow may bring. We may think to plan, but the days ahead belong only to the wisdom of our Lord.

Have I blundered to foolish sidetracks and dark rabbit holes through my life? Yes. The only thing I am not ashamed of is the gospel of God's love. If the Lord so presents me with a Proverbs 31 wife, then I will be a very blessed man. As the Word has spoken often to me, it is not good for man to be alone. I never intended at all to be alone for so long. Jesus is my best friend. We have gone through a lot together. To share this friendship with His choice for me will truly be an honorable privilege. I say this with deep conviction and sincerity.

I am in very good health. I ride one of my 4 bicycles about 50-60 miles each week in this hilly terrain I live when weather permits. This year will be the 3rd year in a row I plan to do a 100 mile charity ride with some other friends. So if you think you can work it up and enjoy this, it would be a real plus.

So on whatever level we may share here on this site, let us spill our learning from each other and thankfulness unto others is my prayer.
