have not been active for a while, but happy to now have some time
taking the time to write a fair amount of information here, so you may better recognize if I am what you are looking for. At least, better the chance to find a very kindred soul.
i'm not a 'clinger,' but I do want a bonded, dedicated-to-each-other relationship. Probably best if you are retired, yet definitely involved in God's work/good things...the passions He gives.
have a very busy life, but would have no problem making changes for a man I loved & adored. believe God made the relationship between a man & a woman able to be the most ecstatic possible on earth's plane of existence. How loving of Him - how exciting for us!
i've been single almost 40 years now (no, nothing's wrong with me - just happily involved in other things)
live with an amazing furry canine creature in Co.'s beautiful mountains - between Vail & Aspen
have had full & blessed life - with friends/family, travel, R&D, living on/piloting classic wooden boat...Chesapeake Bay, Hudson River, Long Island Sound, etc.
also have been a world-class rated (snow) skier/performer
raised 2 wonderful adults in Vail as single mom (70's & 80's)
love to teach how God works with our hearts & minds, along with better understanding the part we play in this, as taught in the Scriptures
my scientific background has been in high-performance technologies - i.e. how the mind receives information & uses it - how high performers (sports, etc.) are able to do what they do so well that lesser performers are missing - discover this thru modeling, then replicate into training programs - these programs were proven in the Army with dramatic results, then designed into programs for various other fields - mainly business
education + experience have given insight & tools for working with the mind, yet the Bible & Holy Spirit continue showing the better way! Love it!!!
can hardly contain the excitement - think God's probably had to allow 'thorn in my side' to keep me looking to Him, humble, & 'super-woman tendencies' in check - no doubt has saved my eternal life!
blessed with good health, mindful of healthy lifestyle - even at that I have had some major physical issues the past couple of years - fortunately, the Good Lord saw fit to sail me right through accidents & medical error - any one of them could have taken my life or left me quite damaged.
am grateful, functional, still athletic, joyful, peaceful, clued-in, passionate, purposeful, driven...the rest you may imagine
(please know: I will only respond to those with pictures)

get to know each other in a pleasant, relaxing, public place - then perhaps at another time, dine alfresco, with friends, at my great little apartment/home on the gorgeous Roaring Fork River!
enough to know & determine the following (& more) -
recently decided that I want a real soul-mate in my life
MUST already have God as priority in his life, led by Him & wanting the intimacy of sharing life with his lady having God right in the middle… makes for the ultimate in everything...!!
time together is fun doing something or nothing, discovering the good & yet not so good in each other, walking hand-in-hand till Jesus comes... the most exciting way of life, no?
next point... if you say you are Christian in your profile and conversation proves otherwise… not productive
questions & discussion on issues with discovery in mind is productive + fun – love deep theological discussions - what a turn on!
think 'courting with an outcome in mind' is a brilliant concept + it becoming a cherished experience & memory.
by the way, my moral values are "old fashioned" - guess I lost a few of you there!
pray that I will be blessed with a man who has had rich life, profited from it & stable enough to share life with his woman to the max
why not be a match that others see & want what we have!
by nature, I have always "gone for the gold" so why should it be any different here?!!
being in a church that is the most aligned with the Bible
by His Grace, obedient enough to be doing whatever He wishes -
Gal. 2:20 (my paraphrasing:) 'I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live, I live by the Faith "of" Jesus Christ-who loves me and gave His life for me.' -
I know I have to die daily to my old self by His Grace so He may lead... showing me what to do and what to say as He lived by His Father's Will - that was His Faith and is the Faith I aspire to & always have to work on =:)
Gal. 2:20 is the favorite of many favorites because of the power packed in to it...
Molly, my furry companion is seen often in town...I'm the one tagging along! She is also a larger-than-life, wonderful Service Dog - for 7+ years she has kept me free of cluster headache-type events, of which I fortunately seem to have almost 'grown' out
in'09 I accidentally skied full speed over a cliff & broke my neck at C-2. (Ironic since I used to jump cliffs for commercials!)
was airlifted to Denver, expected to be DOA!
lots of people started praying & an awesome miracle was wrought...
God's intervention caused undeniable miracles that unbelievers can't pass off merely as luck! He has given me a powerful testimony (amongst others) & holy boldness to tell about it
doctors still marvel how I am alive, let alone walking & pretty much 'as good as new' - there is NO 'gray' area to this injury...it's quadriplegia or death & I'm neither - & believe me, I know this is not about me...I just retell the story to call attention to Where all the glory belongs!!
at the behest of friends, for a long time, i am finally sitting down to write my autobiography, as well as an experiential narrative on the relationship of "rationality to spirituality" (from my scientific background & 'global' experiences, married with what the Holy Spirit has taught me about how he does it all better!
He transforms our strongholds & bitter roots, at a level "science" can't - however, He is The Science, isn't He? He's All the Laws - the All in All, yet we have a cooperative part to play - better to know what that is & how better to do!
love the way it's all spelled out in Scripture, but has to be applied for the Holy Spirit to take it from the intellectual mind to our heart/mind/neurology.
think the fact that we are biologically wired for Love/God - as a survival need - is astounding & replete with opportunity for investigation
maybe there is a special someone who thinks these things are exciting too & is caring & can see the good God is doing with the situation He's allowed in my life...& maybe he's someone who loves to talk about God & with me, to God...
my 'largest' desires in life are to evangelize in everything I say & do, striving to be His Godly woman & if it's God's plan to be a Godly Woman in His work with a Godly man, then (with a little trepidation) I say, "Bring it on!"
