The one thing I am passionate about...
My faith and relationship with God. I am thankful for all that points to Divine Friendship- a sunset painted just for me, a talk with a close friend at the right time, or a strong moment at a difficult time. I am nothing without His still, small voice and the gentle winds of His Spirit. In fact, He gives me all the other things in life that I am passionate about (my career, travels, friends and family).
I typically spend my leisure time
Talking with good friends, reading, traveling, napping!
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is dedicated to me and shows that through his willingness to listen to me, to at least try (!) to understand me, to give me the world, to be my life partner through it all.
The first thing people notice about me
My personality that encompasses a sense of humor, friendliness, and kindness.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller. I felt like I was sitting next to him, having a conversation with an old buddy. I read it at a time when I was lonely and longing for friends with similar spiritual viewpoints, and I felt connected through the book. It speaks to how I feel about Christianity. It "hits the nail on the head". It was so good I just kept reading; I have to read it again to really absorb the good stuff!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Having faith in God.
- My family- immediate and extended- and getting to spend time with each.
- My friends who let me be myself, listen to me, and enjoy laughter.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Often I am perceived as quiet and shy, when really I am bubbly and full of life... and a little bit goofy.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Good listener, Perceptive, Spiritual
A little more about me
A little unsure about e-harmony, so if I don't respond, it's nothing personal. I probably did not even see the match. Maybe soon I'll dive in full-speed ahead! (I think I'm nervous about actually finding someone!)
