Hi All. I'm a young 51 year old, I'm divorced with one son who is 27 years old. I live near the Great Smokey Mountains and the scenery around here is absolutely proof positive that God created wonderful things.
I love to read, basically mysteries but occasionally you can catch me reading a romance novel. I love old things, old cemeteries fascinate me...I love old cars and recently bought myself a 72 restored vw convertable. I have been a Christian for a long time but I havent been attending church the past years...I think i need to start looking for a home church and now maybe is the time. I've been divorced a very long time and last year was also the end of a 7 year relationship that basically was a friendship.
The past 5 years of my life have been dedicated to taking care of my mother who had alzheimers and holding down a full time job. She passed away last year and a month later my best friend got killed in a car accident...this past year has been a fog for me. I think I am finally beginning to emerge and I basically joined this site to find other Christians and some new friends. Other than my son and the two dogs who currently own my couch, I am mostly without family left. Sometimes It can get very lonely and I find myself a bit depressed at times.
So here I am... I'm looking for new friends, a chance to learn more about the bible and God's teachings...and maybe someplace where I can strengthen my faith.
