Loving California

I could really enjoy living here in Redding.  No, I’m not about to up and move tomorrow, but it’s always tempting when I am here to at least think about what it would be like to live here.  Today we spent listening to many from the Bethel Senior Leadership team.  We heard Banning Leibsher; Eric and Candice Johnson; Danny Silk and Steve Da Silva.  It was a great time, and the wisdom and anointing that flowed from these speakers was overwhelming.  So, spiritually, it would be fun living here.

It also would be great because it is so simple to get around.  You are never more than twenty minutes from almost anywhere in Redding.  It’s easy to get around and they have my three favorite stores: Costco, Trader Joes and Kholes.  What more do you need in life to shop?  They have numerous Starbucks along with In and Out Burger.   But the best thing that they have is the Sacramento River.  It is awesome, with it’s bike paths and running trails.  The winter’s are mild and the springs and falls are very nice. 

The only negative is the summer weather.  The temperature can reach 110 easily, even though it’s dry heat, it still would be very necessary.  The fresh produce is amazing here in Northern California.  The people up here are pretty down to earth, much like in the south and it would be easy to fit in.  However it’s not really going to happen.  We are just getting settled into Peachtree City, and it looks like we are going to enjoy it there.  Goo would really have to speak to get us to move.  I’m not saying that it will never happen, because we don’t know all that He has in store for us.  But right now, things are going pretty well.

But it’s fun to dream, and if He were to ever release to move somewhere out west, Redding would be at the top of the list.  Another great thing is the view of Mt Shasta.  You can’t get a view like that in Atlanta.  Oh well, back to reality.  The conference is going well.  We will be going to Chico early Sat morning.  Seeing the grandkids is going to be great.  Sheryl says that Chico is nicer than Redding.  If so, I can’t wait to see that town too.  I know that we will have a great time.  It’s good to be back out here.
