My self-summary
Here's a part of who I am and what I'm looking for.

Born in the central { Florida, } I have a Southern Accent to match. Was raised in a Christian home and born again, so the woman in my life would be (Equally Yoked!) I'm compassionate and very aware of those who are less fortunate than I am in life and in no way above breaking bread with them, as well as being comfortable dinning with the privileged. Life is just way to short for it to always be about pride? Have you found that doing for others provides an enrichment not found anywhere else. My soul seems to do well when I'm giving and might I add that it helps me as much and probably more than them.

A (Perfect mate) Is that what your looking for? You'll need to keep searching because I'm far from that, but I'm confident you'll not find anyone else that is either. I do remember one but they crucified Him. I'm fortunate enough to understand some simple things about relationships that make it work. Such as a ladies independence and her need to share time with other's she deems important. So if you need to spend a week away with your girl-friend's, that's cool with me. I'm a big enough boy take care of things while you're gone and hope you have a great time.
(Real Friends) <> Surely we agree they are hard to come by and I would never consider even wanting to separate you from them. And besides, dedication and trust is essential in any relationship. In a day when we wonder if anyone can be trusted, I fully know the latter is earned and not just given. That takes time but who's in a hurry. Yes, I'm getting older, but as long as you cant run as fast as me and I can still catch you when needed, we'll be just fine. OK, that's a joke....roflol :) ....I dont have to run you down, I'll just tied you up..... Oopps, another joke. :)

Those close to me say I have a boyish charm with a sometimes silly or lighthearted humor, but can also be serious. I think they're just being nice, kidding me or wanting some of my good cooking. Anyway, I love competition / games of skill.
At present, I'm only interested in "A Friend-Ship First Relationship."

Raised on a small farm by a grandmother who made a great impact on my life, mainly faith and moral values, it often leaves me feeling somewhat outdated in this progressive world: She has passed. So if you like to wear jeans, that's nice. And then like to dress up like a "girlie girl" the next day, I like both very much. But rest assure, it will not be your outer attire, but your walk with God that will tug at the strings of my heart the most. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing a beautiful woman as much as any man but in my opinion there's nothing more attractive than a confident, prayerful woman of God, full of Him and compassion for others and lovingly adores her man: Is there greater among women than her?

I love to fish, dive, sing and song write and one day hope to take the Alaska cruise and a trip to Jerusalem off my bucket list.

So after we meet, lets say you'll be safe to introduce me to your friend's, and I'll try my best to make you proud you did. I'm kinder than most men and will have great respect, admiration, and love for your family and friend's alike. I'm not in love with this world and by Gods grace, only passing through so I'll refrain from exaggerating my intelligence, height and income, lol. I work for myself and travel a small part of the year. In 1984 I went into full time ministry as an Evangelist and God has shown himself more than capable of meeting my needs. It would be nice to find a woman who is familiar because they would understand me more than the next person but it's not a must. If you've read this far and you know we're not a match, thank you for stopping by, I do wish you well in your search.

Sorry if I haven't been able to answer your message in a timely manner, Ive been working over 100 hours per week for some time now. God bless and take care.

And for those still interested:
PS. I shouldn't have to say this but I will.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
No one ever gives a real answer to this question, but Im very different than most men, so here's to breaking the norm and a close up examination of a piece of my heart:

I became very bitter at God after my former of 20 yrs left our family and ministry in Jan of 1999. I just couldn't seem to understand nor except how this could happen. Ultimately, bitterness came and lead me away from ministry for a season and down a very difficult road. It took me nearly five year's to get my breakthrough and learning so much along the way. So here's a little poem I wrote to commensurate that journey, hope you enjoy.

"Every Fallen Tree"
I started out as a seed in a Forrest of big trees
A little water, a little sun, would be just enough for me
Rooted by the brook I was taking hold of life
Everyday my limbs were growing stronger in the Light
I was feeling very good about the days that lay ahead
Likewise bird's & squirrel's sought out nooks to make their beds
Suddenly the winds began to blow, lightning struck it's downward course.
I was destitute and humbly broken splintered by it's mighty force
You could hear my roots crack & pop, screams from the awful pain
The many years of growth that passed now seemed all in vain
As quickly as the storm appeared it vanished from these tattered woods
Leaving behind such terrible destruction no life around me stood
My canopy of hope had fallen, now death lies on the brink
If you look real close you just might notice that all my leaves are beginning to shrink

The tender songs of chirping and chatter has been driven far from here
The former joy, now non-existent, life prostrate filled with tear's
Suddenly the stream flowing through this land brought a familiar smell
The coolness of it touched my Heart, shut back the rott of hell
Tear's of joy and damaged roots, started dancing in the mud
It's amazing how at the scent of water this fallen tree is beginning to bud

There's still a chance for all Gods flora's, the Root of David Deep In Mind
If you've fallen In Gods Garden, you can still grow with a little time.

Inspiration comes from
Job 14:7; For there is hope of a tree if it be cut down that it will sprout again.
14:9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud and bring forth boughs like a plant.
Written By Me
You should message me if
