    Dale, now after a very short period of time after posting, the edit button disappears. I don't think there is any way it can be edited now, unless a mod could do it for you, or someone knows of a different way.

    I have a very small list,
    #1. She must be on her way to heaven.
    #2. She must believe the same as I do.
    #3. She must love me.
    #4. And she must want to be in the will of the Lord.

    Now you will be happy if you are with who the Lord wants you to be with, and I'm very happy with who the Lord has put me with, I have been asked if i think that my girlfriend is "The One" and my answer is yes. And I think that the husband should be the leader of the family but no the master of the family, a leader will care for his family and a master will only care for himself, and praise the Lord I plan to be a leader not a master, because a leader will be firm and strong when the family needs it and he will careing and gentle when the family needs it too, he will be a protector and provider for his family and he will be willing to help carry the heavy load of being a dad, and always put his family first and do everything in power to keep his family happy. :thumbs:

    I LOVE this LIST!
    Being a wife now, after years of thinking that God had decided that I was never going to marry, I have a couple things to add.
    God places a Love for you in your future husband/wife's heart.
    Regardless of what you look like, if he is following God, and serving Him, He will keep on loving you. Sometimes I feel that He loves me more than I love him. But that is how God designed it. The husband is to love the wife as Christ loved the church.
    I too had a list. There were about 23 items on the list that I had decided would fit me best. DALE-C only fit 3!!! and that was the part about loving God with his WHOLE heart, Loves his family/siblings, and was doing what he thought God wanted him to do. God gave me a love for him, just as he will give you a love for your mate. (my idea of Love is NOT the gushy kind of thing. It is a Love that can make you gripe at the other person for leaving the socks on the floor, but still pick it up and be thankful for dirty socks TO pick up!(.......NEAT FREAK was on my list!)I have since learned that Perfection in manners, dress,looks, and other things is not what GOD looks for in a mate for you. He looks at the heart of a person.
    I can honestly say that I would not be as happy as I am today if He had sent me someone other than Dale-C!
    BTW. if you did go to the website that Dale put in his post.... add about 50Lbs and swollen feet/face/hands, plus a BIIIIG belly. That is what I look like now, and he still thinks I am the most beautiful woman in the world. ( yeah I KNOW he is crazy, but I love him anyways!)

    One who is actively sharing their faith and making disciples covers a lot of other things which are nothing if not put into action.

    If you are looking for someone to marry then be around people like the person you would like to be with. If you want to be a missionary then be around others your age who are doing missions work.

    Make yourself an interesting and attractive person. Never stop growing and learning. Never stop physical and mental activity.

    Marriage is not so much about finding the right person as it is being the right person. A person who loves God and makes disciples will not want to even date someone who does not love God and make disciples.

    Right now, I'm just looking for someone who's in God's will-- not just God's will for me, but God's will for him, too. In the meanwhile, I'll wait and enjoy single life while I still can. :tongue3: No use flittering about worried about meeting my soulmate-- somehow I think a God who can time the planets perfectly so that they never hit anything can handle the timing on a hubby for me. :thumbs:
