Used but with low mileage, all original parts, no rusty components, no accidents or dents. My second owner is Jesus Christ, who paid a great price for me and restored me. Ready for the road ahead with Him on the driver's seat.
Always looking for the best in life and people, active in church, intellectual, great cook, a man of many talents, never bored, who accepts people for who they are (after all, if Christ accepted me as I was and forgave me, why look at other people's defects? Isn't this the reason why people get divorced?). I am a 7th Day Adventist (no, we are not a cult- we believe that we are saved by grace only, not by keeping the law, including the Sabbath, the day that Jesus used to go to church- Luke 4:16). The enormity of our debt in the bank of heaven could only be paid by the blood of the Lamb of God. "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29).
I am missing a rib; the one that is supposed to be around my heart and I must find it.
Saved by the amazing grace of our merciful God, having nothing to claim on my behalf- only to the cross I cling. Well-balanced individual- intellectual- as previously stated (although I do not know it all) but enjoy simple things in life like a walk in the woods, the smile of a child, a trip to the beach, the breeze on my face in the morning. I have been described as patient by impatient individuals :), enjoy helping people, with many hobbies and talents (God was too generous with me) that include deep Bible study, cooking, wood carving, sand sculptures, writing, teaching (former academy teacher and college professor), gardening, practicing sports, museums, exploring nature, fixing stuff and remodeling houses and many others. I keep an open mind to learn new things to keep a youthful spirit and a zest for life. I consider myself to be 100% natural with no artificial ingredients (read pills), low in cholesterol, fat free, gluten free and sugar free, although still am very sweet.

I would like to go to a place(s) where we can talk at leisure so we can get to know each other better after the initial emails and phone calls. I would like to spend a few hours if possible so we can have most of our questions answered and determine if a second and subsequent dates are to be planned or we just continue as friends.
Never to date a woman who was not best friends with her father or that holds on to the past. I consider an impossibility for a woman to love a man if her relationship with her father or kind step father was not a healthy one. My female friends consider me a good catch but I will not play rescuer again in a marriage setting because it is not fun to be taken for granted and suffer the repressed rage and coldness of a hurt lady.
To be the recipient of daily innumerable blessings and to have the truth to share it with a perishing world. I have experienced the joy of soul winning and it feels great.
I want to have my own business where I can reach people for Jesus. I had my first business when I was 14 years old and I really loved it. My father became incapacitated to work and I begged him to let me run the business. What a satisfaction I had to work to support my family at that age when other kids were joining gangs and getting into trouble! Now I want to help people to get to know their loving Savior.
Psalm 73:23-25 because it reminds me that God is holding my hand (=I must depend on Him and not on my own wisdom and efforts), and that nothing in this world compares to Him.
I would like a woman that cuddles and holds hands; the romantic type that appreciates flowers, massages and going out to eat as well as enjoy my culinary creations. We would also cook and do other activities together. I like to focus on the good traits of character of people ignoring their defects. I am not perfect yet :( and I want a lady that lives the light that she received. She must be a prayer warrior, so when I write, preach or teach, her prayers will be the key to open the door to the treasures of wisdom of the Omnipotent. Please do not contact me if you do not have a picture- I consider a person without pictures to be prone to dishonesty (you can find someone to upload them for you), or if you drink or wear jewelry. I know that there is a maturing process in our lives (I used to have Rado and Rolex watches and now I am content with my $15.00 Casio, and got rid of my graduation ring- Genesis 32:2,4, Isaiah 3). God gave me the instant forgiveness gift and do not hold grudges, so I ask for the same so our marriage will last forever. Although my favorite church is African American, I strongly prefer women with light skin color (and fat free). I cannot picture myself with a woman older than me. Please do not be offended. Everyone has his/her preferences- just like you might not like me for being too short, too skinny, too ugly, not smart enough (sorry, my IQ is only 142, not 160 like Einstein's), too old, have an accent, live in Pontiac, drive a Neon and I am not debt free. If with three strikes a batter is out, I have nine here, so my inning is over with 99.9999999% of the ladies.
My ex was a wonderful woman with many great traits of character so I do not want you to speak evil about your ex. If you are still talking bad things about your ex, you have not gotten over him and the wound is still open and infested.
Marriage is not about "what it's in for me?" but "how can I make this person's life better and more satisfactory?" In giving, we receive. It requires from both to be patient, forgiving instantly and accepting the spouse unconditionally without trying to change that person because none of us is the Holy Spirit. Marriage is not about domination. When I was reached by Jesus, he changed me into a peacemaker. I believe that a couple should reach agreements and compromise when necessary. For that we must be humble and love our partner. Sometimes one of the two can give 20 %, other times it could be 40, 60, or even 90%. No one should mind to give the whole 100%. However, when one of the parties asks for 100% all of the time and does not accept ideas or listens to opinions, there is an element that is not Christ-like.
If told "my way or the highway" I will always chose the highway. Why? Because marriage is not about me being right and you being wrong. It is learning to live with one another in an atmosphere of respect, courtesy and kindness. That is why I am divorced and why I will never marry a woman older than me. She regretted that attitude but it was too late. It was painful for me to see her tears (telling me that she did not want a divorce) but the divorce had been finalized six months earlier and it was her idea (well, her counselor's- she tells all her female patients to divorce their husbands). She remarried not long after it. I just hope she can mend her relationship with God, enjoy eternity in His presence and bring him to Jesus.
Do you know that it is Biblical for the woman to initiate contact with the man? Remember Ruth. I might not notice you unless you call my attention. Nowhere in the Bible says that the man should always make the first move.
If after our initial contact I write you twice and you do not respond, I get it. I will not contact you again and will leave you alone for good. As a gentleman, I will not insist.
