My Kind of People
1) Serious but likes to have fun. For me, this is the easiest kind of person to relate to, and what I consider myself to be. It's sort of like there's a pretty distinct difference between work & fun time. Overall, serious to me means you're diligent, like to connect on a feelings level...not just this is what's on my plate this week type of discussion, and you work more than you play. You still will allow yourself breaks to recharge, and you relax daily. I've given myself some freedom in this area from looking at God's model of working 6 days and taking a day of rest. That proportion can be modeled on a smaller scale within a day. Oh, and one last thing, we'd better have fun if we planned on such, which means laughter and experiencing something new together or if it's familiar -- it was on purpose! Isn't it nice to have friends who will take turns generating ideas and being creative together?
2) Fun but finds difficulty in being serious. I love lots of fun people who struggle to dig down deep or bail out on work from time to time. I feel bad for them when the subject turns somber, and sometimes wonder if they're just bored or if there's some stuffed experiences and pain that they don't want to surface.
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. James 3:17
He continued, "Go home and prepare a feast, holiday food and drink; and share it with those who don't have anything: This day is holy to God. Don't feel bad. The joy of God is your strength!" Nehemiah 8:10
Do a favor and win a friend forever; nothing can untie that bond. Proverbs 18:19
