I'm not perfect, nor do I expect to find someone who is; “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” -Oscar Wilde
Life is not about how few (or many) mistakes you have made, it is about how you have learned from the ones that you have made.
And I have made my fair share of mistakes, but I can't let myself be defined by them.
I have always loved the quote by Cato the Elder "After I'm dead id rather people ask why I have no monument than why I have one."
I don't have any delusions of grandeur, nor do I want a monument after die, but I do want to have a positive impact on the lives of the people around me.
Whether its through spreading the Gospel or simply stopping to help someone change a flat tire.
I look to Joshua 1:9 for my strength each day "Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with the withersoever thou goest."
I take great comfort in knowing that I'm not alone in my daily struggles.
I am looking for a girl that tries to live her life by the two great commandments "The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Isreal; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."
I am looking for a girl that is willing to work for what she wants, someone who will shoot for the moon but is not ashamed to miss and land amongst the stars.
I love to have conversations about everything and nothing.
I enjoy talking about politics, history, and philosophy, how they impact our lives as a Christian, and I can hold a decent conversation on just about everything else.
Also, I love quotes, so let me end with a couple of them.
“You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses” -Alphonse Karr
"In the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." -Abraham Lincoln
So if I am called to do something greater I will gladly respond "Here am I, Lord, send me."
I'm also very good at my job.
And my eyes, I get a lot of comments about my eyes.
Friends & Family
Passion (Side note: Passionate people are the most wonderful and interesting people, if there is something that you hold dear and are passionate about, I would love to hear you talk about it.)
You know, simple topics.
I know that shoots up a barrage of red flags, and maybe it should, but I hope you can get to know me, look past that to the person I've become, and forgive me for my past.
I'm interested in sharing life with someone and becoming their best friend, so message me and we will both be able to stop looking.
If you are interested in gaining a new friend and having an interesting conversation.
