    So any takers for a 62 year old man who appreciates good cooking
    can't offer much - unemployed, still renting, but I own a Kia Rio !!
    In the world poor,
    but in the Lord I'm richer than a millionaire.

    Does that count for something?

    This is the "What Can You Offer?" thread. Nobody has started the "Any Takers?" thread yet. :::hee hee:::

    I just added you as a friend. I like spiritually rich folks.

    I didn’t see a temple in the city because the Lord God All-Mighty and the Lamb are its Temple. The city didn’t have need for the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the Glory of God gave it light; the Lamb is the Light.

    It has something to do with the birds and the bees.

    You start with moving into a place that come the spring was suddenly overrun with dandelions. You decide that since the pilgrims intentionally brought them to North America that they had to be of some use. You decide that if they are not paying rent they will serve a purpose. You collect approx.100 of their lovely yellow blossoms. Snip off just the yellow petals. You need to end up with 4 cups. Pour 3 cups boiling water over the petals, 3 whole cut up lemons. Simmer for 30 minutes. Let them sit overnight. When it is room temp you have created a type of dandelion tea.
    You can now strain it through cheese cloth then bring the liquid to a slow boil, stirring in 2 1/8th cup sugar until dissolved, then slowly simmer for about 1 1/2 hours and you have your honey. You can add a few drops of vanilla.

    You can also do something similar to create a jelly by adding pectin. Yes I have the recipe for that.
    It tastes like marmalade.

    Also my name is Deborah which means queen bee so I feel qualified to say I make honey.

    My mother used a similar method for making rose petal jelly, right down to the lemon juice. It was delicious!

    I'm not so sure about calling it honey though...

    I'm going with the title of the recipe . Different recipes have different consistencies and when it was originally made it was probably a poor man's version of honey. Without the pectin it has the same sort of sticky sweetness of honey, though I agree the bees might object lol.
    Great memories from your mom's kitchen.

    I think I’m done hoping for Mr Right, but I’ll answer this like I would if I were still searching...


    I can be pretty at times.


    I can go into really deep bible discussions, he might be surprised by that once he gets to know me. Every Christian should study the Bible, and I think he would enjoy me studying alongside him.


    I would respect him. I know this is rare, but I would promote and encourage him to lead the family. I would be submissive to him, make him feel like a man, and support his male ego- which drives him to provide for and protect his family. I would massage his feet, cook for him, keep the house clean, etc.


    I’m good at organizing. I have ways of solving household problems that some have found impressive. Having to live without a man, I’ve learned to do manly things around the house. I can fix things, I can rearrange furniture, put furniture together, sand, paint, I’ve even made furniture. I’m not the person who says I will do a project and years go by, no I get it done, if it’s not a back burner type of project.


    I work alongside my son as he cooks. He loves that I just seem to know what he needs. I clean the dishes as he dirties them, I chop the veggies as he needs them, I get out the ingredients he needs, and put away the ones he no longer needs. He says it’s like he has a prep cook.


    That is also how I would be in a marriage- a helpmate that would make everyday life less of a burden. I had a bf one time who had to ride in the backseat with me for an hour long trip. He kept falling asleep, and his head kept nodding forward, and he would wake up to hold his head up, but kept falling back asleep. So I held his head up the whole hour long trip so that he could sleep. Another time he came in from the cold, his hands literally like ice. I said “Give me your hands.” He said no, they were way too cold. I took them anyways and warmed them up with mine.


    I will not argue. There will be no yelling from me, slamming doors, revenge of any kind, I’m not violent or harsh. I forgive quickly and completely. I am in a constant state of “what can I do to make you feel loved?” If I see you’re cold, I’ll put a blanket on you without you having to ask. I try to leave things and people in better condition then before I arrived.


    I am trustworthy. You could literally leave a billion dollars on the table, and I won’t touch it. I have had 2 millionaires offer me whatever I want in life, and I didn’t get greedy, dirt poor as I am. I had another situation, involving money, and my honesty was rewarded, and I had lunch with the Governor of Michigan. I have been tested, I will never betray you, cheat on you, gossip about you, etc.


    I am capable of deep love. Some people are just emotionally unavailable, or too scared to open up and be vulnerable to someone else. I do have trust issues, but once you’re in, you’re in lol. I can be very passionate and sensual. And I’ve been told by exboyfriends that I’m a great kisser. I can rub your back for hours as you go to sleep, I am not lazy in wanting you to feel good, happy, satisfied, and loved. I will not be like most wives who often say “I have a headache.” I can go years without a headache.


    I’ve got your back, when the world comes against you, I will be there sticking up for you, defending your good name. I will be there when you need someone to hold. In good times and bad times, I will be by your side, making your life as happy as possible.


    SONG
    “I Will Be Here” by Steven Curtis Chapman


    Tomorrow morning if you wake up, and the sun does not appear, I... I will be here.


    If in the dark we lose sight of love, hold my hand and have no fear- cause I... I will be here.


    I will be here when you feel like being quiet, or when you need to speak your mind, I will listen.


    And I will be here when the laughter turns to crying, through the winning, losing, and trying, we’ll be together, cause I will be here.


    Tomorrow morning if you wake up, and the future is unclear, I... I will be here.


    As sure as seasons are made for change, our lifetimes are made for years, so I... I will be here..


    I will be here, so you can cry on my shoulder, and when the mirror tells us we’re older, I will hold you, and I will be here to watch you grow in beauty, and tell you all the things you mean to me, I will be here.


    Hmmm,I will be true to the promise I have made, to you, and to the One Who gave you to-oo-oo me.
