In His Own Words

About Him

... VERY SPIRITUALLY STRONG, Fun loving, devoted, extremely humorous African-American man, with the logic of Spock, 6'21/2",227 lbs, have gotten back into body building to become a fit 37 (love handles optional, but leaving) copper-colored skin with black curly neat hair and deep hazel eyes and moustache. I was baptized at 15 and raised in the Truth. My Father is a full-time pioneer and ministerial servant in Warren North Cong., Warren, Ohio ( I am hoping to become one soon)* and mother fell asleep a faithful servant of Jehovah after raising twin sons and a daughter to serve Jehovah and provide a wonderful, compassionate mate and hard worker for a loving brother or sister. I love music, am a musician and songwriter, and I am a hopeless romantic. I love to read, am an excellent cook, and a good sport. I love camping out, I am an Assembly Gypsy like my father, and commit as much time as I can to the ministry. I also LOVE to do scriptual research; it is an obsession with me. I love animals and I used to have so many that the friends called me "Dr. Dolittle". I also love to work out, and am currently challenging myself to get rid of my luggage. I have just started to pioneer and am looking forward to going in service with my pioneer father for the first time in 30 years.I have just recently been given additional responsibilities, which made my heart race at the thought of being given the opportunity to serve Jehovah a t a greater capacity, being able to represent the congregation in prayer and reading at the meetings. Hopefully, soon Jehovah will see fit to allow me to become a ministerial servant, and I zealously await this next step. I love long field trips ( especially to find the never visited congregations I haven't seen)and movies in good taste.Especially Disney....( I cried at the end of Lion King ). I also will sit and cuddle and watch love stories, pop popcorn in my fireplace with friends... {or "cheat" on my diet sneaking snacks up to my room and heating them in my fireplace there}; making frequent trips to the bathroom to play off my watering eyes. I am emotionally sensitive and a GOOD listener and wear my heart on my sleeve but emotionally strong when need be; I'm not afraid to cry when I am emotional. I am a professional Artist and Master Painter, and aspire to ( if it be Jehovah's will ) one day be an illustrator of our publications or serve in a Hispanic congregation as an elder. I hope to advance one day to Ministerial servant....and am asking Jehovah to help me to be patient with my goals and also be patient with me. I love to remodel, am a general contractor, love to do oil paintings and sculpture, (stopping to take a breath)...love gardening, and fellowship as frequently as I can at building sites.I am also a "Kid Magnet" being a big kid myself. I love garage sales ( I need to have one ) and antiques ( being that I am one myself ) and am a clutter bug, but will be willing to give up the arsenal of accumulated junk if a sister can discipline me... (dirty socks also optional). I also "do windows" and give great massages!!! :o).... I also aspire to maybe be appointed as an elder in a hispanic congregation, as I learned Spanish from my mother, and am trying to develop my speaking skills ( I need to master English first, though...:o) ). I was previously married to a woman who was not of our faith....thus, being unevenly yoked, I have never had the experience of dating someone in the Truth...this will be an exciting experience for me... I warn you, though, I am VERY romantic to the extent of mushiness and love old Cary Grant style movies, and I am very emotionally sensitive when I love someone... have been known to pull stunts such as sending flowers and singing telegrams to someone unexpectedly; I love Sci-Fi and am a "Trekkie" at heart. I have never had the chance to fall in love, so when I do, the fair Shulamite who pulls my heartstrings will be in for a shower of love that will make the flood of Noah's day look like a spring shower....

EXTENTION UPDATE: Some of the friends ask me why I chose Shadrach as my Jay-Dub Singles name. Well, my mother started to name me Shadrach and him Meishach when my twin and I was born. Unfortunately, it didn't happen, but because of Shadrach's loyalty being tested by the fiery furnace, I was drawn by a deep affection to him as well as Meishac and Abednego. I had been thru a lot of distressingly awful events in my life comperable to being cast in a fiery furnace that forged and purified me,as with smelting steel, that gauged my faith in Jehovah; having at one time been wayward, I determined to humbly crawl back, battereed and bleeding, to the warm arms of my father after "squandering my inheritance" ( the rich knowledge that Jehovah had once blessed me with ); enraged, Satan stripped me of all that he gave me and I lost everything I had and became homeless on my long quest back into the comforting arms of my creator and my huge family of 6,000,000 plus brothers and sisters ( no, I'm not the cephlopod on Men In Black). Determined, I tearfully pressed on despite my loneliness, homelessness, and other obstacles. I bore my pain in silence, never letting on to the elders that I was homeless and walking 15 miles both ways to the meetings 3 times a week, even in winter. Words fail to describe the emotional, tear drenched reunion between me and my family members when that day came and they finally announced my reinstatement. For the first time in my life, I understood the emotional reunion of the prodigal son and his family as I reached the end of my lonely road; tired, tattered, beaten, humble,but joyous, and fell into the waiting comforting arms of my loving creator (... forgive me... I'm rambling again ) and I still feel that I am unworthy of His blessings and undeserved kindness as He dresses me " in the finest of His garnments", and my "brothers and sisters welcomed me with much song and celebration", feeding me little by little with the broth of His love until my strength returned. My endurance cannot take a candle to the Shadrach, but this is what I am striving for... an unmatched zeal and love for Jehovah... Plus the name has such a COOL ring to it...

Please pray for me to continue in my humble quest, and for Jehovah to grace me with whatever crumbs He is willing to give... even if it's scrubbing toilets!!

About His Ideal Match

******** NOTE: THERE ARE SISTERS WHO SET QUALIFICATIONS AND STANDARDS BEYOND THOSE THAT ARE THE STANDARDS OF ACCEPTIBILITY TO JEHOVAH. The Bible clearly admonishes us that Jehovah is a God of forgiveness, and in Jeremiah 31:34 He clearly states that He forgives them of their error and no longer calls it to mind. SISTERS, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BROTHER WHO HAS NEVER BEEN DISFELLOWSHIPPED, THEN CLOSE MY PROFILE. BEAR IN MIND THAT YOU ARE PLACING YOURSELF IN A SERIOUS POSITION, YOU ARE SAYING THAT THE ONES WHOM JEHOVAH HAS CLEANSED THRU FORGIVENESS ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU. YOU ARE ALSO SAYING THAT HE MADE A MISTAKE IN ALLOWING THEM TO SERVE HIM AGAIN. WELL, SUCH ARROGANCE IS SOMETHING THAT IS DANGEROUS, AND YOU SHOULD QUESTION YOUR OWN MOTIVES, AS WELL AS YOU HUMILITY. THIS IS A QUALITY THAT SETS US OFF FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD. IF YOU HAVE SET THESE UNREASONABLY HIGH STANDARDS, THEN YOU ARE SAYING THAT JEHOVAH HAS NO RIGHT TO FORGIVE, AND YOU FEEL HE SHOULD TREAT THEM THE WAY THAT YOU DO. ASK YOURSELF... IF I TREAT BROTHERS THIS WAY BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN DISFELLOWSHIPPED, AM I BEING FORGIVING? IF NOT.. WILL JEHOVAH HEAR MY PRAYERS?
...(I ALSO noticed when I changed my appearance to I look okay in my profile, some of the sisters stopped E-mailing me. I guess humility is only rewarded by Jehovah. Believe me... I am NOT A TROLL... just humble)I long for a youthful-thinking and acting, spontaneous and PATIENT sister and E-mail friends who are lovers of Jehovah, "a capable wife"....(NO BAD TEMPERED SISTERS...PLEASE!!!!)and who's limitless affection for Him would make her willing to leave me for Him if need be... someone who can put up with my spontaneous wit, child-like playfulness, clumsiness, dirty socks, discipline my procrastinative nature,and tolerate my endless need to run my mouth ( as you can see from my LENTHY bio), as well as the ability to handle all of the love I have stored inside. ( I like to talk... as you can tell by my long - winded disortation ). Relocation will be something we can come to a mutual agreement on...once I find someone,...well, when and if Jehovah sees fit to send me someone. ...I wish to build a solid relationship with Jah together.... and on into the New World. Nothing is promised to anyone, and sometimes the answer we want is not what Jehovah sees fit to give us. Well, I am trying to follow His lead, thus whatever He has seen fit to give me, this Shulamite Maiden will be the one. Remember, it is always best to be totally honest with someone before you allow feelings to run deep, because you may irreperably damage them. You may be a good sister and your intentions honorable, yet you may just decide that you are not ready to commit yourself to someone.It is much more appropriate to let someone know before feelings become too deep. Hopefully the thought of my socks won't scare you off...

However, if anyone can put up with my dirty socks, then the great tribulation should be a walk in the park... (or maybe you can use them to ward off oppression...just hang them on the door post like Jehovah had His faithful Israelites do the blood on the night of the plagues)

I am looking forward to meeting you, and I also am receptive to meeting new friends. ( picture coming )
