Introduction

Hi fellow peculiarities (we're to be a peculiar people,right?),
I've learned that there are things that just don't mesh with non-christians, and to a certain degree, non-SDA's. Hopefully, I'll find commonalities with someone who is also compatible with my personality.

Essays

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

A good first date would NOT be a movie! I'd like to walk along the beach (nearby), feel the sand between our toes, breathe in the sea air, and talk about what makes eachother tick.

My past relationships have taught me...

I have learned to "not be unequally yoked". All of my "ex"es have been non-believers. Some have said they were Christians, but as we dated, it became clear they didn't even know what exactly they believed. My dad, on his deathbed, asked that I marry a believer. I told him I would abide by his wishes. His desires have become my own. I know I will see him again, and will introduce him to his daughter-in-law.

To me, being an Adventist means...

Being an SDA means being tolerant of other faiths without losing the discrete cultural identity that our faith is distinctive for. We have had dark moments in our past, but I'd like to think we can move beyond our past myopia and progress toward a greater Truth.

In five years, I see myself

I'm working on establishing my own business. I have been involved in the field for many years, and look forward to being at the helm. I don't delude myself into believing it will be easy, but I know it will be fun.

My favorite Bible passage is...

"The wise man's eyes are in his head": obvious, yet obscure. "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.": I've been a surfer since I was 12 years old. I've surfed waves 25'+, they bring me closer to God than I can ever express. "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus": My grandfather was an Adventist minister in Japan. He is gone now, but he left me a banner with the calligraphy in his own hand of Revelation 14:12 (in Japanese, of course). Also: "Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised": Need I say more?

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

Boy, reading over what I've just written, I sound very serious and solemn. I am farthest from that! People who know me consider me a goofy, funny, playful, and non-self-conscious (is that a word?) person. I love to have good clean fun and the Youth group that I have led for many years know this. I'm athletic and hope that my future significant other will share my joys: Surfing, snowboarding, skiing (alpine & nordic), scuba, mountain biking, rock-climbing, backpacking, camping, motorcycling, and soon kitesurfing.
