Temporarily on short break! Otherwise...
A VERY GOOD morning/afternoon/evening to you! I appreciate you taking time to read these "few" lines meant to present/sell me. I know you're out there! I'd love for our paths to cross! If you are a christian woman who strives to live by the guidelines in Galatians 5:22-26 & 1Corinthians 13, I've been praying to meet you! Hopefully it won't be long, but in God's time! that is never late, never early; just timely! I subscribe to Ephesians 5:25 and would love to apply it to you, to the letter.
A glimpse of me: I'm a work-in-progress Christian. My new calling is to reach out to the less fortunate [more below]. I'm well-mannered and very even tempered [it takes a lot to really ruffle and get me angry]. FAITHFULNESS! GENTLENESS! HONESTY! KINDNESS! LOYALTY! RESPECT!... are key virtues when I'm in a relationship. I get jokes the first time, most of the time so, I guess I'm blessed with a sharp sense of humor. Telling jokes... that's another story!... let's not go there!.... I do not dominate conversation but like to actively listen to what you're saying, then share my point of view, in turn.
Anything I do in my life is prioritized so that: God is FIRST; immediate family [you/kids] NEXT; THIRD my job/education; followed by the extended family [close relatives from both sides]; LASTLY, everyone else and anything else. I've a good education and a diverse background that includes military, foreign service, information technology, and currently in transition to allied health, specifically, pharmaceutical care [translation: I want to be a pharmacist]. I speak English with an accent that is neither American nor British... and smile a lot!
I'm seeking genuine friendship leading to love and eventually life-long marriage with a godly woman who desires to spend the rest of our lives [good/bad/worst times; health/sickness] serving God by ministering to the needs of those less fortunate! ~ and each other! [Divorce not an option!] Our Creator didn't intend for us to try each other out... So, am I looking for Ms Right? NO! She doesn't exist! But, I intend to follow the advice in 1Cor 13 & Eph5:25 to make the one I meet, RIGHT for me! I read somewhere: God gives the best if you leave the choice to Him! I've left the choice to Him... Are you the ONE?
Important note: Marriage deal breaker in my book is 3-pronged: Adultery! Physical abuse! Illegal drugs! You're probably going hmmmm..., I wonder which prong has landed him on this site! In a word: Adultery! And it was the man's wife who called to let me know I was sharing the woman I considered my wife with her husband!! So that you know, that was five years ago. I've since been healed by God's amazing power that has led me to this site to move on! But, if you're on this site because you broke your marriage vows, please pass me by! Once bitten, twice shy!... whoever coined this, was smack on the mark!
By the way , the kids listed are: A girl, 24 - SLP aide preparing for grad school; a boy, 21 ~ college senior; a girl, 17 ~ college freshman. Custody of the kids when under 18 was shared 50/50 rotational ~ one week with her one week with me. But we agreed to let the kids decide. Turned out they preferred mom's! So, they were mostly there. Something to do with my cooking! Take a wild guess! Oh... If you would like "kidlets" of your own, I won't disappoint! There is still "lots of daddy" left in me;)

Whatever we agree to do.... I'm flexible. But if you insist, I can find this one place, any place ~ including your town!!
Love is an ACTION; not a feeling! Happiness is not getting what you want; it is wanting what you've got! It's NOT you against me, but you and me against the problem! The problem is the PROBLEM! Life is cyclical, so be ready for the inevitable ups & downs; best & worst times; health & sickness! That said, no condition in life is permanent however scary, so never panic! Instead, take it to the LORD in PRAYER! [multi-source paraphrases/quotes found to apply to my past relationships]
Accepting Jesus Christ as my/your personal Savior who is the Way! the Truth! and the Life! as well as loving God enough to obey His commandments [NOT legalism ~ Matthew 22:37-39 provides the practical way to obey God's Law] and having the testimony of Jesus Christ manifested by living a self-less life that is exemplified by acceptance of all people without judging or classifying them; service to meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs as well as sharing the good news about Christ's second coming and the health message. And, having FUN throughout! Guidelines found in Exodus 20:1-17, Galatians 5:22-26, Mica 6:8, 1Corinthians 13, and Matthew 28:18-20.
5 years? I couldn't tell you the next 5 secs! but, the Bible says king Solomon was the wisest man ever to walk the face of the earth. In Proverbs 16:3, he advised: "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." In 7 yrs, God willing [assuming He hasn't come for us then], I see myself running a community pharmacy in an under-served neighborhood and using part of the proceeds to support a mobile clinic for pregnant/nursing mothers and an orphanage in Kenya. I am originally from there.... I know what they go through and I would like to help! In a nutshell, serve the Lord by meeting the needs of the less fortunate.
To me Galatians 5:22-26 provides the framework for the christian life. I draw peace and comfort from Jeremiah 29:11, which reads: "I know what I am planning for you, " says the Lord. "I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future." Matthew 6:33: "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." This, too, keeps me focused right!
