I guess you have to read my essays to know who I am. I have a GREAT sense of humor. I love to garden, spend time with my grandkids, take pictures & videos and go for walks with my favorite friend - Brody Dog.

I would love to meet a guy that likes to laugh.
And gardening ! ! !
MUST LOVE DOG(S) ! ! ! ! ! ! !!

I like farmers markets, festivals, home videos, time spent with friends & family. There are so many things to do and share with that someone special.

I accept ALL the Church's teaching on:
Sanctity of Life
Papal Infallibility
Premarital Sex
Immaculate Conception
Holy Orders

I am not a part-time Catholic - nor a cafeteria catholic.

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

The first date would be after many, many emails and phone calls.

As I mentioned - farmers markets, country festivals, all kinds of events.

My past relationships have taught me...

I have learned to be myself - not to try to find happiness through someone else. When all the dust settles in ones chaotic life - your family and your friends in Christ are standing there. That is very important to me.

I seriously believe that as you grow older you have a totally different idea about love. You are more comfortable and accepting of yourself so you don't feel you need to 'be someone else' for that other person. When you were younger you had a tendency to do anything for the acceptance of someone for the sake of love. Oh, the things we did in our our past to be loved. There is also the people who 'falls in love with love'. I was one of them. I mean - who doesn't want to be 'in love'?

When we were younger, we had a tendency to 'play games'. Games to get some ones attention, get them jealous, get them upset. Today, if I want to play games, I will get water guns to share or kites to fly.

Life is short - have fun with 'LOVE'.
As time goes by, you learn to be yourself and are open to accepting the fact that others aren't 'perfect' in one aspect or another, but they are 'perfect' for you in so many other ways.

The thrill about being in love is sharing the same things with special surprise moments from each other. To love someone who loves you so much, you think about each other all the time. I believe in praying together - even if it is in silence.

I personally believe fall is the romantic season. But, the fact is - love is 24/7 year round. Love is accepting each other for who they are. Love is spending time with your best friend. Love is being patient enough to pray for God's approval.

Everyone knows the 1 Cor 13 verse, but I believe in Sirach 6: 14-17 as well.
Sirach 6:14-17

14 A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure.
15 A faithful friend is beyond price; no sum can balance his worth.
16 A faithful friend is a life-saving remedy, such as he who fears God finds.
17 For he who fears God behaves accordingly, and his friend will be like himself.

To me, being a Catholic means...

I love being Catholic. I am a cradle Catholic that wandered aimlessly for 33 yrs. I had the faith and said the prayers - I just didn't know what I know now. Since I returned to the Church 5 yrs now, I have been making up for my time gone.

In five years, I see myself

Five years - this is funny since I have been here for 7 years.
I want to be totally in love with the man God has planned for me. Happiness is through the heart, as well as through the eyes.
I look forward to sharing the Catholic faith with someone special.

My favorite Bible passage is...

Way too many to list. I can't remember when I haven't read the Bible and found the verse that led me closer to God.

Phillipians 4: 6-7

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

Of course friendship is the first step and there is always room for more friends. It is far more important who you are 'with' than what you do with that person.

We could have fun by just being together. I get a thrill out of the simplest things. It takes time to grow in a friendship in order for anything more can come of that. It's not what I want; it is what God wants for me.

Music plays an important part of my life. Listening to music - not playing it. I have so many styles I enjoy - bluegrass, opera, christian, polkas, country, disco, and on and on and on...

But first and foremost * You need friendship before you can connect with ones soul. Friendship takes time and patience. Patience comes with prayer. - LOTS AND LOTS OF PRAYER.

To talk and listen and share your life and love of God with someone special is such a wonderful feeling. If you end up being friends; well, how special is that friendship? If you find more to the relationship, you are blessed by God and have an opportunity to build a relationship that only two people in love deserve.

Beauty is not just physical; inner beauty is priceless. I see beauty in a heart and a soul.

If you are not TOTALLY into the Catholic Religion, please, please, please pass me by.

All Blessings and prayers be with you.
