Hello All Good day to all! I'm a 40-year old hillbilly, separated from the Mrs. for longer than I care to recall, but wooing her for all I'm worth. We have a lovely 14-year old daughter who is currently on the verge of growing up which terrifies me. (Actually Shawn terrifies me-but he's a good kid) I've lived in Northeast Tennessee all my life, was raised in a very conservative Christian household which pretty much outlines my look on life. I came to know Christ as my savior at an early age, and despite having made many mistakes along the path I've come to realize the true meaning of forgiveness. I've worked at Eastman Chemical Company for 19 years. My schedule is sort of strange, we work 12-hour shifts alternating sets of days and nights. Always in sets of 3 or 4 with offtime inbetween. With an accumulated 14 days per month worked it's not bad but alternating between days and nights can often leave you wondering which way is up. We're currently looking for a home church, after our pastor stepped down due to lack of support from an aging small congregation who no longer wished to support missions. You can't drive 5 minutes in any direction here without seeing a church. But due to my schedule and only being off 2 weekends a month it's been several months of visiting to find where He would like us to attend. I was invited here by a member from another board I mod at, and was thrilled to find a Christian-only board.
