Starting with a new profile so here goes:
I am considered by my friends to be an interesting person. I have experienced a lot of things, done a lot of things and know how to do a lot of things. I am at a point where I enjoy things simpler if possible. It has been a lot of years since my bad boy days, I now like things peaceful with me and those around me. I don't hang around when there is drama anymore. I prefer to be caring and sensitive. I enjoy conversation and getting to know a person.
I am seriously ready for some major changes in my life. My lifestyle and priorities of serving the Lord has kept me from serious relationships. I am a very committed man as the many close friends I have know. I came very close to marriage where apparently I was to be there to fulfill some marriage fantasy rather than sharing a life of meeting each others needs and desires to whatever degree we are capable. I am still hopeful that an awesome marriage can exists and I am not willing to settle.
Another part is a "career" change. Giving thought to shutting down my business of doing home improvements and focusing on my hobby of buying and selling cars. Maybe I will sell both houses and get a piece of property in the country somewhere between here and Arkansas. I am just not completely sure of where I am headed in any area I am just ready for change which could start with a special lady.
The woman that I am looking for has a love for God that comes first. I believe the Bible is true and that Jesus is Lord. I am a "full gospel" believer and expect to see great and mighty things from God in the days to come. I need someone who is not satisfied with a casual "church life". I long someone who wants to experience God with me.
Some things would be unchangeable for me. I really need a dog lover as I am that and an animal lover in general. Jada, my dog, has been with me since a pup and will be happy to welcome someone with me, but she will not be pushed aside. I am very conservative in my faith and political beliefs. I have some great women friends with different views and we have some great times but we are not going to make it passed that, but that's ok too. Almost forgot to mention, hope you enjoy a dry sense of humor. I really enjoy making people laugh.
In recent months and years God has been doing a work of restoration in my life. I am called to the ministry and know that will be an active part of my life. As I mentioned, I am a non-denominational believer who believes in the "full-gospel". That is that I believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit that were seen in the fist century church are still active today. I believe with every fiber of my being that Jesus is coming very soon. That conviction impacts everything I do and every decision I make. A relationship for me will only work with a woman who has these same convictions. I know this will cut down responses, but why waste each other's time. Best of Luck in your search.
