Hello,,, (I've been so long 'over-due' in re-editing this...!) My name is Terry. I live just a few miles out from town, on 10 rustic wooded 'rural' acres frequented by various birds & other critters. My house, (a one-time garage) is not very big or fancy, but has had a recent foundation upgrade and a new steel roof. The interior still needs some finishing/remodeling work. (with a woman's 'touch', it might even become more 'home'-y,,,) I sometimes wonder if I will ever see it completely 'done', as there always seems to be so many other things that suddenly crop up in life, though I must admit that being somewhat of a procrastinator doesn't help. I treat yard-work in general as my exercise, and for the most part I tend to enjoy my outdoor four-seasonal 'chores' of mowing/raking/firewood/snow scooping,,, Ah, the 'simple' life...! (Non-Metro,,,!) I also enjoy poking at small bonfires fueled by dead-wood/ trimmings from my woods. The local night sky can be full of moon, stars, and occasional northern-lights... I haven't been enjoying my Harley as much as I'd like. It would be so much more enjoyable with someone to share rides with. There are miles & miles of scenic wooded rural county roads around here to enjoy. I haven't played my guitar much lately, and when I do, my cat is my usual audience, though she 'hates' my harmonica...! Fall comes 'early' around here, winter can often enough drag on & on,,, but spring and summer are well worth waiting for. I am still mourning my Dad's death, who died March/2014 at age 90, in CA. More recently my Mom died (Aug 24th 2015 age 88...) My sister and I are now 'orphans',,, (very strange for us to comprehend yet,,,) I'm not quite ready to 'upgrade' my acct here yet, but intend to,,, (as soon as it seems 'right' for me) so 'hang in there'... (I'm pretty much limited to viewing 'smiles' for now,,,)

Easy does it, taking time to absorb first impressions, along with doing something that each of us might enjoy, to find out what we might 'connect' on. If nothing 'clicks' I'd hope that we'd find a way to be 'gracefully' honest with each other.
Take your time,,, what's the big rush,,,? I was married 18 yrs, and have now been single for quite some time. If I've learned anything since then, it would have to be, 'Slow down',,,! Don't expect to make drastic changes in anyone right out of the gate, you'll just end up frustrated. Take some time to know someone first as 'just' a friend, and they might surprise you. You might even accidently surprise yourself...
I believe in a Loving God, WHO IS coming soon. I am always mindful of my relationship with Jesus, and have been learning to trust in His Love, not trusting in my own 'works' to save myself. Part of a Christian life is learning how to love others as Christ Loves each of us...
I like to mind my own business...
God only knows...! The saying, "Life is what happens while you're making other plans." seems to be what has happened in my own life. I think I'm finally learning how to make the best of all events and things that come my way, though not always of my own choosing.
John 3:16 is basic, covers everyone who believes in Him... I also like the "By Faith"... passages, as they pretty much tell us that God Loves sinners, and is able to do His Work through imperfect people such as myself.
What comes next,,,? I can only say it seems that God isn't 'finished' with me yet, else why am I still breathing and hoping,,,!? Thanks for checking out my profile... (though it's a bit overdue for a re-edit) Blessings to you...! :)
