My Roman Catholic Faith undergirds, shapes, and defines my daily life (or at least it should). CatholicMatch suggests that I write here what I look forward to most. The first thing I can think of is: I look forward to the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen!
Indeed, I am ever-increasingly trying to stay focused on Heaven, my getting there, and trying to bring others there as well. (Unfortunately, I'm far from perfect at living only with a view toward eternity.) In this earthly life, however, I feel that God is calling me -- and I know *I'm* calling me -- to married and family life, it it be His will. I pray that my future wife and I may be His instruments; in particular, as Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen once described very beautifully, the bows from which are sent forth God's arrows -- our children -- into the future, that they may go swift and far.
I'm blessed that, in my current occupation, I largely enjoy my work right now, and so I am able to find pleasure and gratification as I try to bring home the daily bread God provides for me. In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, learning more about my Faith, pretty much anything to do with cars, some mild enthusiast photography, working with computers and electronics, watching old movies, walking, and biking. I also enjoy eating, which....now that I mention it.... makes me sound fat. Who doesn't like to eat, though, right? I cook a bit too, but don't hold my feet to the fire on that just yet. No St. Lawrence pun intended. I also enjoy swimming, but I haven't done that properly in some time. Just thought I'd put that down here too. Believe it or not, I enjoy other things as well, but these are the ones that come to mind so far.
Sitting back and analyzing the ensuing mini-biography I've just written: As one who has occupied both extremes of a personal social media presence, and have preferred to be more private in my online dealings in recent time, I'm actually now a bit nervous for some reason about just....putting myself out here and trying to summarize (although I should be more brief in my dialogue in general!). But if I didn't see a greater good for that, I wouldn't be here, I suppose. So, here's praying to St. Joseph to intercede on my behalf, if it be God's Will.
