I don’t believe in destiny, but I do believe the Lord works in mysterious ways.
I saw an interview several years ago of a mother that had just lost a child. She said she tried to look at things as “Always blessings, never losses”. I thought how strong her faith must be. That is how I want to look at losses in my life but I have found it's easy to look at things that way when you’re on the side of blessing, but not so easy when you’re experiencing loss. So here I am once again experiencing a loss and trying to have faith that this is truly a blessing.
I have recently been divorced for the 3rd time. You may be thinking “divorced 3 times???…what’s wrong with her???” I have to admit sometimes I wonder the same thing. I know why my marriages failed, and I also know I was 50% of the reason.
My 3rd divorce was just recently "granted" (against my wishes) in March, but life doesn't stop when we experience pain and difficulty. I have been dealing with this since June 2012, and frankly, I'm tired of putting my life on hold, being alone, and waiting to see what was going to happen. Now that it's done, it's time to get back into life. If we decide to meet face to face, I will be open and honest with as much detail as you would like.
I'm not looking for my soulmate, or someone to warm my bed and I will honor God in my life. I'm looking for a true Christian man, that puts God first, and you can see God in his life, his words, his actions. I want a Christian friend to spend time with, go to church with, and just someone to do things with. I know that being in a relationship as friends is different than the "typical" relationship, but that is all I can offer right now. I do pray the Lord will someday give me the marriage I so desperately want, but that may not be HIs plan for me.
We have all heard “good things come to those who wait”, or “God doesn’t take something without giving something better in its place”, or “it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all”. You and I have loved and lost, and now here we are hoping that good things will come and trying to have faith that God will give us something better and make a blessing of our loss.
So when will our paths cross? I look for you often….I wonder if you’re seated a few seats from me in church, or in the car next to me at the stop light, or in line ahead of me at the grocery store? I pray the Lord will bring us together soon because I know you need me as much as I need you.
“God knows when something glorious in the future necessitates something difficult in the present. Because He knows the glory will be worth it, God will risk being misunderstood.” Beth Moore
Well, if you’ve continued reading this far, let me tell you that I hate cold weather, (I hate being cold PERIOD!), and I can’t stand a fan blowing on me when I’m trying to sleep. I hate inconsiderate people, couch potatoes, housework and cooking.:-) I LOVE spending time with my daughter when her schedule allows, hot weather, Silver Dollar City, southern gospel & county music, the lake, hiking, riding my motorcycle, spending time with my girlfriends, and many other things that I don’t get the chance to do very often…floating, bowling, roller skating, riding my bicycle, etc., etc. I’m compassionate, a little shy, insecure :-), and for the most part easy going. I’m financially responsible, mentally stable, and maybe too independent for my own good.
So....boys….if you want to meet me, give me a shout, don’t just hit the “Meet Me” button, or add me to your favorites and expect me to contact you. I’m old fashioned and that won’t happen. -)
