Recently gone through a horrible experience, which has brought to the strongest connection I have ever had with the Lord. So I have both a horrible and blessed experience all wrapped into one. My wife left me almost 18 months ago. Recently signed up for a Committed Couples class lasting 12 weeks at church. When I mentioned I hadn't been divorced but a few months, it was suggested that I might rather take the Grief Recovery class. I revolted. I told the person that I'd had enough of grief and pain and some 6 months ago had told the Lord I was intent on moving forward to joy, happiness, a genuine caring relationship, commitment, sharing, etc. I was told I could take the requested class and was also told that it was good that I had moved from the negative and was focusing on the positive.
Had moved South to retire, but I tell folks that instead I keep getting retreaded. I have good health and enjoy my work, which is now part time, so I just continue on.
I am a very loyal and committed partner. I am a romantic and enjoy hugging, kissing, holding hands and surprises.
Have been forced to learn to cook due to my loneliness. Went through Divorce Care class, with one of first videos about loneliness. Afterwards I told those present I had a comment and question for all. The question part raised a few eyebrows. I told them I invited folks for dinner most every Sabbath and that might be something they might try if they suffer with loneliness. Then I added that would they all come for dinner? That has become a monthly get together for those of us who have completed the divorce class.
I enjoy hiking, walking, bowling, horseback riding, cruising, the beach, gardening and keeping an attractive yard. I'm sure I can think of more later.
I'd like to close with how much I love the Lord and appreciate his constant care through my very traumatic experience. I desire to grow stronger in Him each day. I never want to lose that intimate relationship I now enjoy with Him. He is now my Saviour and my Friend.
There has to be more to share, so just ask.

I'm fond of Italian foods. Have enjoyed wide variety of foods and have many that would be called favorites. My favorite colors would be red and blue.
I did read the newspaper this morning, but daily do my SS lesson and Bible reading, along with a current book I'm reading about revival and reformation. Excellent thus far.
