I enjoy good music, I guess that is a hard one, because everyone's tastes are different. No hard rock, heavy metal, jazz, or Christian rock. I like folk, and some country, without the drums and the twang. I like the upbeat of Mozart. I'm not into the night life, unless it is checking out a starlit night sky around a campfire.
I would like a man who can handle practical things and yet converse intelligently on deeper subjects. I want a man who is neat and clean, dresses well but not faddish. I've learned that most of the time the guy who is physically attractive, can become shallow by having too many women flattering him; the same goes for we women, huh? Since none of us had a choice as to our eye or hair color, our stature, dimples, complexion, etc, we can't take credit for what God put together for us. But more importantly for me is the beauty that comes from within a man, kindness, meekness, thoughtfulness, strength of character that others admire, (and that is what we can choose to make a difference in ourselves).
I have spent most of my single years since my divorce in a type of mission work, two years in Africa, nine at a lifestyle center and college, and now seven years at a small academy, and now at at lifestyle center in Colorado where staff are like family.
I always thought that when I retired, I wanted to travel around and do things like Maranatha, but I will be happy wherever I am if I am in the Lord's plan. Even though my living quarters are not my own(owned), I enjoy coming home and decorating, planting flowers, and sometimes cooking--it's not so much fun cooking for one--always a healthful breakfast and eating another great meal in the afternoon. And living longer and healthier without supper. But I do enjoy eating out once in a great while.
The person I would like to meet is one that God would direct me to. The only way he and I would know that, is to take the time to really get to know each other. I suppose I have a sort of picture of the right guy. Someone taller than me, with a nice frame, pleasant smile, nice features, a handy-man, serious minded and yet fun without being too ornery, and most of all thoughtful of family, friends, and humanity in general. I want someone who can become my best friend as well as my husband and lover.
I like animals if they are outside. I like dogs better than cats; horses, although I never learned to ride before fear overtook me. Birds are beautiful in the wild, not in cages. Fish are okay, but I like my freedom to come and go without having to have someone pet sit for me if I am gone.
I would like to travel and have no fear of flying, having been up in a glider and an ultra-lite; two prop mission plane in Africa; like the water, swimming but never learned to water ski; enjoy camping for a short duration, am good up to 8,000 feet before the altitude gets to me. I like to visit parks, museums, art galleries, go shopping, though I am not a big spender. I am content with what the Lord has provided for me and continues to give me.
I don't spend my time in the theater, on the dance floor, or trying to win popularity contests. I do like to play table games, but not cards per say. I never really got into spectator sports--only long enough to cheer my sons while they were growing up. For re-creation, there is no place like God's great outdoors.
I love to study God's word and share in Sabbath School and hear others prospective on things. I am enjoying interaction with other single staff (mostly young adults) every Friday night as we get together to study the Word. I enjoy 3ABN, going to ASI meetings, camp-meetings and also just quiet time alone with God. He has been so good to me, I love Him so. I would love to share with someone the goodness of God. I would enjoy chatting and camaraderie with a kindred spirit. I am not comfortable being a pursuer, so I will gladly wait to hear from you. God bless.
