There are so many ways that could be chosen in introducing myself in such a way as this: humorous, serious, zealous, straight, askew...I actually saw this and thought how could one possibly place enough of themselves into something like an introduction that would convey an accurate portrait or themselves, much less having enough of a sense of self to place more than facts about myself in such a place as an online introduction.
So you can see I've chosen the route of intellectual in presenting myself in an introduction. I really can't think of how an online introduction or blurb about me could really replace a real meeting face to face, but here it is!
What a time it is, to be able to be focused on building a life in my local and surrounding communities, maintaining strong bonds with my family and friends, the people I serve at my work (my daily mission), my own relationship to God through out it all, and be able to reach beyond physical limitations of time and space: if I could, I would visit and serve all the youth and college ministries to get to know all the people there rather than through online mediums, but I have yet to find this task manageable. Thus I do what I can with what is presented to me. Similarly, it has been impossible to separate my energy, personality, and spirituality from any part of my life. I recently remarked to someone I serve asking how I could possible do all that I do: it would cost me more time, energy, effort, and thought to not do those things than to do them. So I continue to live all I can for others. It has never served me to serve myself when I can instead serve others.
Let's see what else..I am considered by many to be very witty and quick. I've been called noble once or twice (I really liked that one, there's such much behind a compliment like that). It doesn't take much to get me excited for much of anything. Simply spending time with a person I find to be a considerable honor for myself, as I have come to know time and attention is one of the chiefest gifts we can choose to invest. While this world is full or life and victories, grace and love, it is not what I plan to obtain. I wish to do well in life and help as many people as I can along to way. However, I ultimately wish to hear these words when my time to answer for the gift of my life: "Welcome home, my good and faithful servant." I seek Heaven in, with, and through all that I chose in life. Thank you for reading. God bless, and keep you close.
