About Me

CURRENT MISSION

You hear people say" I want to travel the world" I intend to do it

ABOUT ME

Recently I've retired from the military service. Now it's time for me to enjoy traveling more on the the personal level. I am grateful for my family and friends who have given me the chance to appreciate the beauty in every culture, nation, race and definitely the FOOD :))

I am very easy going, I love to laugh a lot and enjoy the small things in life. I enjoy traveling, of course :), hiking, swimming, scuba diving, running, fishing, photography and cooking :)) ( always open for learning a new recipe )

I am easy to talk to, feel free to get in touch with me.

PHILOSOPHY

Never regret anything that once made you smile and never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about.

True love is unconditional, that is, it does not depend on the attributes or lack thereof of the person loved, therefore, it is willing to give as much time necessary, and as much space as necessary for that person to grow. Love seeks to give others something of benefit for their welfare, and consequently, rejoices when they do benefit. It's to lift one's self up in reference to others leaves no room for unconditional, graceful love. It's to act inappropriately, shamefully (morally, especially in the area of sexual purity) is not in accordance with true love. Love never seeks it's own gratification but rather the interests of others. Selfishness seeks to manipulate others by stimulating certain selfish emotions. Love will not do this to others, nor will it let it happen to itself. If love really is unconditional, it will hold any weight, face any doubt, persist through hopelessness, and last any trial. Love never fails... If it did, would it be love?

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have seen the most pure smile and genuine joy from an African child having a small piece of candy or even just a hug...A lady with three kids, deceased husband and nothing in her house and I mean nothing but a cardboard to sleep on and a couple of pans to cook in and she said " I have everything I need " !!
