My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The fuller beard grew back this winter and may well be here to stay, so if this is a turn-off please look elsewhere :)
Self motivated and proactive, I am building my financial future rehabbing doubles with my son for rental. After 30 years as an architect, I've opted to invest in a future where I actually build what I've designed! It's very exhilarating and I'm learning to enjoy both sides of my chosen profession.
My life is centered around an intimate relationship with God and I desire a relationship where we are both thoroughly devoted to this core belief in our purpose as lovers of HIS truths as expressed by our devotion to loving each other and nurturing the best in the world. This is no pie-in-the sky utopic vision; but a practical application of what works. It's a lifelong process of growth and appreciation of what we have been given and learning to become the beauty we were designed to become. While I was extensively involved in all the churches I attended I am currently not attending services. I am happy to connect with one; but have no interest in connecting with a body of believers not on a path parallel with my own.
I have a healthy mix of fun and work and also am devoted to keeping fit to extend the vital years well into the triple digits! I never take my health for granted. Life is a CELEBRATION. Are you interested in joining me on this adventure?!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying the challenge of putting on my 'new hat' and navigating the learning curve with only a few scrapes and bruises along the way (many of them literal). I'm discovering the nuts and bolts of construction are a bit more complex than my drawings indicate and the process is both a little frustrating and quite interesting/rewarding as well!
Also I am growing spiritually as I pray in tongues, study the Bible and enjoy plenty of challenging relationships all molding me into HIS image ... just getting started, even after over 50 years! It is far from a steady, straight-line progression … more a roller coaster, but the trajectory is consistent.
Finally I am actively seeking a woman to walk along side as we both grow to encourage/challenge the BEST in each other. We all were created with greatness and beauty as potentials in this life and I am about realizing as much as possible to bring Glory to GOD.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
.... arriving at creative solutions to complex problems ... I've always liked puzzles and my work fits well with this strength
Also I enjoy writing and communicating with transparency and authenticity.
... filling a Kitchen with wonderful aromas of homemade bread, lentil soup, Cincinnati Chili, mushroom/cheddar quiche. I love cooking/baking.
... gardening, since I was 10, I delight in creating an ever-blooming garden full of variety in textures/colors/fragrances. And nothing is quite as tasty as a fresh salad you harvest from your own backyard!
... writing, using the language to paint a clear picture, with splashes of color and subtle delightful variations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Other than my buoyant optimism, short stature, and Faith that all things are possible with GOD, I am full of energy and enthusiasm. There is little that frustrates me other than rudeness, opacity and deceit. I'm an open book and look to meet someone who is all about learning what makes the other 'sing'!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I find studying (not simply reading) the Bible VERY exciting ... it's SO densely packed with the keys to living a happy and fulfilled life!
I enjoyed Tess of D'Ubervilles, Wild at Heart, Hope Rising, The Shack and The Naked Gospel. Life is Beautiful, It's a Wonderful Life, Lord of the Rings, Gladiator were all compelling movies. I watched Breaking Bad and Fringe (all the TV viewed) ... so yes I do have a few quirky interests that you may find do not comport with a committed Christian. I also listen to sports while working and enjoy viewing the highlights of games on the internet. Jazz, classic Rock, some classical and R&B and even a little country play in the background is typical ... also like dancing so then a polka or swing music, like big bands, is great.
I'll eat just about anything and enjoy all types of food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
intimacy with God, family, hopes and dreams (that's one), growing joy and intimacy with one woman, garden space, kitchen (I thoroughly enjoy cooking and baking)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what the future holds ... and how I can continue to design/shape my life to maximize the opportunities to sing and dance through it ALL!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Focused on completing a long-term project: restoring and renovating my current residence, with the next one waiting in the wings! It would be GREAT to have a relationship to provide the 'play' portion of 'all work and no play' ... any takers?!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am blessed to struggle as I walk through life's difficulties and challenges with a growing intimacy with God ... I am often unequipped to endure them without reliance on an intimate connection with God .. so I NEED God to thrive (I often fail in this on the first go-around; but I get there eventually). I seek a committed, vibrant relationship leading to marriage. I'm FAR from perfect and am committed to working every day on growing to be closer to the man I was created to become.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are ready, willing and able to invest in a long-term relationship. My aspirations are to find someone with whom I can commit to marriage; but it's great to make wonderful friends and encourage others who are on a parallel journey. I appreciate a response, positive or negative, when I invite someone to begin a conversation. Should you opt to not respond I will block further contact ...I am interested in limiting my search to only those truly passionate about their relationship with God and exploring/investing in a journey with me. I am happy to receive messages of encouragement, even if you would decline a relationship :)
