The one thing I am passionate about...
Nailing this down to one specific passion is difficult. But...if I had to - I'd say finding the 'one' who I can grow in the Lord with, have a family with, grow old with (with a smile on our faces. I'm looking for a 'mate', 'wife' and 'friend'...all rolled into one.
I typically spend my leisure time
Golf, dining out, mowin' my lawn, building computers (no, I'm not a geek), spending time with my friends, and hanging out by the pool/beach. I love the water! I'm in the Coast Guard...go figure../
The most influential person in my life has been
A shared faith in Christ. Fun-loving, affectionate and warm-hearted woman who likes to laugh. Someone that's 'centered' but open-minded; gentle but not aloof, kind to strangers but not naive, grounded but not paranoid and most importantly - God fearing, but not racked with guilt/regret.
The first thing people notice about me
Hmmm, have to say my smile. I be-friend people quickly. Easy to talk to, love to listen and enjoy the interaction of the moment.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Can't say that I'm a big reader. Does that make me a bad person? I did manage to get through "Who Moved My Cheese", kinda liked it... poor little mouses.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Grace, mercy and the unconditional love of my creator.
- My parents, brother and sister.
- My inner circle of friends..... and laughter (sorry, that's 4)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm a pretty sensitive guy. I have (on occasion) shed a tear or two during sad movies. Yup, it's true. Myer-Briggs labels me as a "moderate-introvert"... which shocks me, but hey...who can argue with such bleeding-edge technology?
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Generous, Good listener, Warm
A little more about me
Yes, I'm divorced, (happy to share the details at a later date...nothing controversial). No kids, had 1 cat, but she kept it (sad). I love my church (Immanuel Bible Church - Springfield), love Christian music (and a few other kinds), yard work is therapeutic for me, I like to hang out...I like to go out...I love amusement parks, beaches and the water. I'm retirement eligible from the Coast Guard...but no plans of leaving, still like the job waaay too much. I've got it made! ...who could give up a gig like that?
