Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My life has, at some times, been exceedingly trying and sometimes
more challenging, than I would have hoped. More ups than downs I
think, but more than enough periods of doubt. It has been an
interesting story I assure you, but one of few regrets. Many
successes, but my share of broken hearts, too, (and I like the
successes better). God has made an incredible difference in my life
and that is more I could have ever asked for. I would love to share
that story with you, and just maybe, the last chapter, a story that
we would share together.

connecting with people of all kinds. From little children to their
parents and grandparents. It's a good thing to have in my line of
work. And I love sharing the story of Jesus Christ, and God's
Grace. I tell it often and I tell it well!

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like books about people of integrity and scruples, books of
faith. I'm currently reading Eric Metaxas new book; Bonhoeffer:
Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. It is seldom that I have an
opportunity to read for pleasure. I like some TV crime shows,
(Castle, and Bones), more so because of the interplay between the
characters, and always funny movies and period pieces, but
generally at home. I find attending the theater alone
uncomfortable, as is dining in some restaurants; but little out of
the way places don't seem to be that way, and I can eat and read my
paper or book peacefully. Ethnic food of all kinds work, although
for as much as I love Asian food, I'm not a big fan of Korean
cuisine. Music of ALL kinds, although country always reminds me of
broken hearts, honky tonks, pick-up trucks, lost dogs and beer. And
I have always been a Blues fan, with a growing appreciation for
certain kinds of jazz. Big Bands are cool, and certain symphonies.
You figure it out, I surely can't.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wow! This is a lot more complicated than I would have thought. But
as a result of the way my life has turned out, God's grace and love
would be first, (not counting air, water, and nourishment). I used
to think I could never do w/o love and companionship, but one can
survive. Although, without love it is a pretty lonely journey.
Family of course, even if they all live thousands of miles away,
one can always, "reach out and touch." Integrity, honesty and
morality would rank pretty high, too, but all this might make me
sound a bit sanctimonious, and I certainly am not. Just a sinner
and saint, like everyone else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

how, or why, the world, or (more specifically,) "people", are the
way they are. And I wonder what the world would be like if we all
followed Christ's command to His disciples to, "love God and love
our neighbors". Probably more time than I should actually, but it
goes with the territory.

with friends, but they are all married and it sometimes seems like
I am a 5th wheel. I enjoy the quiet, although the TV is on in the
background. My parrot enjoys the colors and noise I think, but he
seems to dislike the Blues and Jazz I like. Might be a phase he is
going through, albeit since he is 18 yrs old, I don't think he is
going to change. Apparently old birds like old dogs, are
