I would have never thought that I would ever be able to say that I once lived in California, but, California, you welcomed me. So I say thank you. California, you’re not what I thought you’d be. Before I moved here, I imagined you to be full of people, city and life. I imagined paradise and the big city, but as soon as we crossed the border and drove South to north to Sacramento. We saw what you are all about. You’re mostly desert, field and farm land. You are full of nature. I think I saw all aspects of Jehovah’s creation here. We were privileged to call you home for three years, but the biggest privilege was meeting another group of beautiful people who all are part of this mighty nation of servants.
