My self-summary
Just a Christian man looking for friends. Where else do you start except as sisters and brothers of Christ Jesus. I do desire to be "in love" and to share love with someone. But I want to get to know the whole person all their desires, hopes, dreams, fears, losses, etc. And when we know each other...and we are very good friends...and thats all it ever becomes...then thats enough. One can NEVER have enough close loving friends. I am asking God to put only those HE wishes for my life that I may be blessed and hopefully be a blessing to others.
DO NOT ASSUME you know all about me: my life, my past, my future, my poitics, my philosophy, etc. I am unique in a way that only God could create. And any passions I may have are tighty held and well thought out, but they are not usually what others might expect of a "White Christian Male." (besides, I am actually Navajo. lol)
I abhore the pretensious and self centered. It amuses me to no end how unaware people are of their own need for self gratification, self-centeredness. You cannot have a relationship that is all about YOU. There must be an equality to all aspects of friendships. Yet that is truly what most people seek. They want their NEEDS met without even knowing what those are. And I am sure care even less to knw the needs of others. If you believe you must love yourself FIRST before you can love others or God then you and I will not get along.
I enjoy genuine people no matter what oddities or similarities we may have. The more unique the more interesting you are. BE AS GOD MADE YOU!!! If you wrote you are "giving, or generous, or "real". or adventerous, or any other silly adjetive then you are not. You wish to be but you are not there. I am interested in people who know who they are with "wishing to be someone else. Contact me when others mean more to you than "cocktails' and immature fun.
What I’m doing with my life
I attempting to live a life that glorifies God and his gift of salvation in my life. I also have a deep longing to serve God by loving others. That may be as simple as holding the door - to cooking someones favorite dinner. Nothing pleases me more than doing for others. I really enjoy seeing others be blessed (and if that means a hearty laugh at my expence so be it- enjoy) One of my favorite things to do is hang out with my children. Doing nothing special, I just enjoy seeing God work in thier lives is; its like fireworks for me.
I’m really good at
Using the gifts God gave me. I cannot do or be anything substantial seperate from God. And any "thing" I may be good at on my own would be a facade and playing pretend. Life is too short to pretend to be some-"thing" we are not.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't care. I am sure it is different in each situation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite author of Non-Fiction is God. He wrote the most amazing book. Its called The Holy Bible and I highly recommend it. If you haven't read it; or haven't read it lately- pick up a copy- IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE- Gaurenteed!!!
My favorite fiction author is a historical fiction writer named Steve Berry. I am also fascinated with history and culture and read a lot of biographies.
I love good food at out of the way mom and pop joints. The best Mexican food around is Rio Cafe by Croton Dam. Best Burgers - any dive bar with a grill and a good humored cook.
Movies are the wide gamut- Yep loved Fried Green Tomatos...also Die Hard, UP, Evan Almighty, Star Trek, Shindler's List, Godfather 1&2, Star Wars, Shrek (can't get enough Shrek) whatever..its all fun...okay maybe not Shindlers List...but you get what I mean (LOL).
I am truly open to enjoying anything, anywhere, from fiction to fact; 5 star to the greasy spoon; from action to tear can all be fun with the right person. Especially the quirky. I love the odd things in life, they fascinate me - so you got a book, movie, eatery, or whatever...maybe YOU are quirky...share with me...chance are I'll love it to.
Six things I could never do without
God, His Holy Bible, Prayer, My Children, My Family, My Friends,...nothing else really matters...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
God, family, how I can make others smile,...
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking hard about trying to find something cool and different to do...usually with my youngest son...swimming at an indoor pool in winter; going to a strange small town museum; making a tent and having a campout in the living room; attending an all night prayer vigil; tickling Joe until he can't breathe, etc.etc.etc. I love being a child of God it has freed me to Love simply, Think deeper; and Laugh Longer!!!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I struggle with self important pretentious people. Don't care what your job is, who you know, what college you graduated from...if you are happy with you...then I will be too.
You should message me if
If you seek a friend that is passionate but real in his walk with God. Someone who learns daily from the weak and downcast from society and not just self help gurus. Message me if playing is more important than achieving. Send me a short note about how God is blessing you I love reading those. Also contact me if as a brother in Christ I may seek the power of The Lord in your life. God's blessings and love over you today. May you walk in his spirit and find favor in his smile.
The two of us
