Over the last 6 months I experienced a health scare that appeared to be terminal. Being surrounded with amazing friends and family, including both siblings and children I have reflected on my life and dug deep to find answers. Being LDS, but not totally active in the faith, I turned to God. You know, your about to die, what do you have to lose. To summarize, I had experiences which not only have left me healed, but also filled with a firm conviction in my heart that God lives and Jesus Christ is his son, and that I matter to Him. As one who has walked the line at times, it is now my desire to serve Him and lift others for the rest of my life. This time, I want to do it God's way. As I have thought about how my experience applies to my life it has become clear to me that a man that desires to serve God will do all in His Power to serve, love, and protect his wife and children. That is the type of man that I seek to become. I am looking for a woman that feels the same way, and that is accepting of others regardless of their imperfections, that understands the greatest happiness is in loosing our life in the service of each other and those around us, who listens well, and engages in meaningful talks, who sees the good in others, who enjoys down time, kicking back, affections, and being with children and grandchildren. I am far from perfect, yet I own my stuff and am not looking for perfection. Only someone who is perfectly imperfect for me.
