To start with, I'm a sinner saved by the Grace of God. Though I stumble on the path of Life, Jesus is always there to pick me up.
I'm a guy who grew up in the country and wouldn't have it any other way. My personality is serious, but I do have a clowning side. It usually shows up when I'm writing or talking. I like to play with words. Example: I just read a book on miming, it left me speechless.
I also enjoy creating riddles.
Most of my free time is spent reading or listening to others talk. I have found that I hear better when my mouth is closed, and therefore learn more. Not to say that I never talk, because I do, mostly in historical or current event conversations, but I don't mind discussing other things. If I have nothing to add to the talk, I just listen.
I have a laid-back way of looking at things, sometimes almost to the point where the chair tips over. That is a fault of mine, as well as being a slow responder. I tend to think a problem out before acting, therefore rendering me useless in an emergency situation.
I love America. However, that doesn't mean that I support nearly anything of what this nation is doing today. For some time after the 2012 elections, I was frustrated, angry, and depressed about the turn of events, politically speaking. At that time, the only thing I could cling to was God. He guided me through that difficult time, helping me realize that I had to let go of my battle to restore this nation to it's former glory, through Washington D.C. It was a relief to understand that America might go down in flames, but Jesus never will. So, today, I try focusing more on spiritual matters, because I personally believe that only a gigantic revival of national proportions will turn this country from the brink of disaster. Of course, this is not to say that I don't still talk politics or read about current events, it is just that today, I don't let the depressing news get me down, and I don't focus entirely on politics as I used to.
That said, I believe that Christians are called to take a hand in the government of the country they live in, one example of this from the Bible, is when Jesus tells his disciples to protect the widows and orphans. Now say that the government passes a law that in some way harms people in those groups. Shouldn't we say something about it?
I open doors for all females, regardless of their appearance or hostile attitude. I don't do it just because it's gentlemanly, but because it's the right thing to do. I like being a guy. I don't necessarily have the same likes as most guys, and certainly don't have the muscles of some, but I still like being one, the one called...me.
I love cucumbers....and pickles!
I can only wink my left eye.
I have a 6th sense, humor.

It's been said I have a good memory, but, it is not so much that I can remember, it's just that I can't forget.
I'm serious-minded, but a joker at heart.
I love the "Memory Game".
I like being specific, period.
I have an interesting birth date: 5/9/95
I am an introvert.
My favorite author is unknown at this time.
I am kind of a sentimental guy.
I've been informed that there is a tiny town in this big country, named after me.

"Here's my credo. There are no good guns, There are no bad guns. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a good man is no threat to anyone, except bad people." Charlton Heston

"Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

When you are sick at heart, the medicine of music is the sure cure. Music helps me get through the dark, stormy times in my life.
I like a lot of different songs. Lyrics are important to me, and that is the greatest determiner, when it comes to what I do and don't like.
