I love to be surprised and to surprise. That is a quality of God that amazes me - how unpredictable and challenging a walk with Him can be. I love to laugh... When I taught third grade, a second grader next door said she could not wait for the following year because she always heard laughter through the wall. Some of my favorite moments are special times with those I'm close to: I value the thoughtfulness put into the planning of an occasion more than its actual cost and the effort put into choosing or making a gift more than its monetary value. I love words beautifully put together in a book, music that makes me feel wistful, and color.
I love the outdoors whether it be riding my bike or hiking, soaking in the smells and feel of the outdoors. Those are the times I l wish to share with someone but school work and a small church do not lend themselves to meeting new people...
I value faithfulness and loyalty, and believe that these qualities can only be taught by example. Kindness is of great value to me: the kind of selfless kindness that seeks nothing in return. More than any other qualities, I'm looking to meet a born-again Christian who knows God and seeks His direction in making decisions. I hope he can have a good laugh at himself, too, on occasion. I don't mean to offend anyone, it's just too hard to fit two lives together if they are not headed the same direction. I know this is a lot to ask, but I believe God is not done going above and beyond what we could "think or imagine"...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would enjoy a cup of coffee and a good talk - casual enough not to feel awkward, unhurried enough to find out what the other person is like.
