Not too many online most of the time...New friends both guys and gals are welcome. Be nice to chat/email while waiting for that perfect match!
Praying for an entrepreneurial farming, survivalist, conservationist, self sufficient marriage minded kinda guy. I have a beautiful old farm where I raise dogs, rabbits, heritage livestock, poultry, herbs and perennials. Have an online books and collectibles business too! Diversity is self sufficiency! I have a very SLOW if you initiate a chat with me, please allow enough time for my response! I will respond. Thank you.

My first born used the following with, acknowledgment, on one of his sites. Since it beautifully says it all I am using it too. Who says parents cannot learn from their children!

"The Invitation" (as taken from him as taken by him from the "Oriah Mountain Dreamer" website)

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love for your dream for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon... I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments. (By Oriah Mountain Dreamer)

Peace! I view "NEW" profiles and those sent by Catholic Mingle...which are often re-views! Let us PRAY for each other! Welcome friends. My quest is for my once in a lifetime...Forever after soul mate. CATHOLIC...HONEST...TRUSTWORTHY...LOYAL...At peace with GOD and himself...My kindred spirit...He truly loves GOD and our country...He will be able to commit to a LIFE TIME RELATIONSHIP. (span style="font-weight:bold;")

I live in/on a farm/homestead in an old rock house near The Blue Ridge Mountains. One of my six children, 20 year old son Rob, lives with me...My first born, a son, JB, lives in Kazakhstan with his beautiful wife and their handsome baby son. My second born, a son, Julian, is in HEAVEN ...May GOD BLESS him and keep him. My third born, a (span style="font-weight:bold;")son, Matt, is married to a beautiful young lady and they have a beautiful baby daughter. They will soon build their home here on our farm/homestead. My fourth born, a daughter, Anita, lives in the next county with her husband, handsome son and beautiful daughter. My fifth born, a daughter, Sam, lives with her fiance' and their handsome son.
My sixth born, a son, Rob, now 20 lives at home...gotta love him, he's the baby...taller than me! Good luck to them and may GOD help them with their choices! We home school too!

The Church, my children, and working in, on and around our house and our farm/homestead are of great importance to me. Making our farm/homestead profitable is a way of life...on our farm/homestead! NOTE: In the Fun Facts "Where you would like to live" there are no selections for "Happy where I am!"...CANNOT IMAGINE moving ALL of our books ever again...although, I must say that moving books is a really good way to sort out your friends!!!

My interests include, and are not limited to, animals, birds, falconry, BOOKS, art, music, photography, nature, mastering the piano...or maybe just being able to attain the discipline to keep learning. I enjoy hunting and fishing. An ongoing project is to restore our old 1973 2+2 Fixed Head XKE... my youngest son, Rob, wants to restore it for us to ride around in! Maybe one day, too, a military surplus HUMVEE...nice FARM USE vehicle! Perhaps a little more school.

Another intention is to put THREE COLOSSAL IRON I-BEAM CROSSES on one of our hilltops to The Glory of GOD The Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit and to the memory of Justin and Chris...forever friends of ours and each other...who died in separate car wrecks less than a year apart. Sadly, now I have yet another reason to put up The Three Crosses...Julian, my beloved son, died March 26, 2005...just as The Beautiful Easter Vigil was beginning, little did we know that Julian's life on Earth was ending...In a fiery Jeep crash...Sometimes understanding is so very difficult...Julian survived a fiery truck crash in 1995, burned so badly that at age 19 both of his legs were amputated below the knees. Julian is such an inspiration to all who love him...all who knew him and to many that only know of him. Julian accepted his compromised life and worked hard to survive for 10 pain filled years...I love, miss, and Pray for him every day. I Pray too that I am Blessed enough to get to Heaven to see him again. Only when I get to Heaven will I then be able to know why Julian was tested in such a brutal way. Please Pray for Justin, Chris and Julian...Prayers are welcome on the Prayer message board too!
Thank you and may GOD BLESS you. I patiently await the man GOD will send, GENUINELY WANTING TO and ABLE TO unconditionally love me, my children, our "animal family"...He will TRULY ENJOY being a member of our farm/homestead family...just the way it PRAYERS will be answered as GOD wills.

Thank you for reading my profile. May GOD BLESS you and reward your search.

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Quiet time...perhaps Mass...a peaceful place...a park...lunch in the car parked on a Civil War battlefield...browsing flea markets and used book stores...friendly conversation, getting to know each other...a casual lunch or dinner...your choice...nothing at all gotta keep it real!

My past relationships have taught me...

GOD, The Church and HONESTY are requirements of marriage...the ultimate lifetime partnership!

To me, being a Catholic means...

NICENE CREED. "I tell you the Truth, he who believes (in The Lord) has everlasting life." John 6:47 "...and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." John 8:32

In five years, I see myself

God willing, happily married and enjoying life with my husband on our farm...maybe back in school...flying a peregrine or a kit of Birmingham Roller pigeons with my 20 year old son Rob...The piano... Another goal, again,GOD willing, is to have "my millions" of rolls of film developed and printed so that I can share photographs of two wonderful young men, Justin and Chris, with their Moms, Dads, families, friends and all the people who will forever love and miss them...And too the photographs of Julian, my son, who died 3-26-2005...yet another horrible vehicle wreck...may GOD BLESS and keep their young souls safe forever. ROMANS 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love GOD, to them who are the called according to HIS purpose."

My favorite Bible passage is...

I like so many it is difficult to select only one...I really like "...and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." John 8:32 This passage is for me...during a VERY TRYING time in my life as I was driving down small town main street I looked up at the old theater marquee and saw "JOHN 8:32" I looked it up in my said it all!

One final thing I'd like to mention...

I am patiently awaiting the fella, who after reading my profile, feels compelled to reply. May GOD BLESS you in your search!
