An “unmarried” who is passionate about sharing elements of my journey, hoping it will bring encouragement to you!

Each age of singleness brings its own challenges.  Since the category of “older singles” seems to be those in their 30s and 40s, I fall into the “ancient” category – on the outside, I guess.  Inside, I have the same hopes and desires for a Godly marriage as when I was much younger.  It’s my hope that my thoughts in this blog will speak to those of any age.  And, I certainly welcome your comments to sharpen my discernment as to what a wide selection of singles face as they grow in their walk with God.

So, walk with me as I start into this blogging world through this developing site.

Why Another Blog on Singleness?

Walk through a Christian bookstore – or any bookstore for that matter – and you will see many books on marriage.  How-to books and fix-it books abound.  Marriage seminars abound to help people be successful in the hard work of building the closest relationship they will have on earth.  Anniversaries are celebrated and long-lived marriages are honored.

When was the last time you heard someone celebrate and applaud the successful living out of a faithful Christian single life?  My guess is that it is never.

As I share aspects of my own singleness journey, I look forward to hearing from many of you to help shape this blog as we talk about how best to live in faithfulness and fulness.  Jesus said in Matthew 5:6 that those who hunger and thirst after righteousness will be filled.  Some translations use the word, satisfied.

I also decided to make this blog public as I am in the process of developing it.  So, you will see my attempts to become better acquainted with all the details of WordPress.

Thank you for reading!
