Refreshing Rain & Beginning Again

Kim and left CA at 4:42 AM this morning and drove to Tacoma. We arrived at 6:00ish (too tired to notice the exact time...I'm a morning person). We left three really hot, Sacramento days that had us sweltering. I know it's not hot like the South or like Houston, TX, but my theory is that anything over 100 is just hot -- dry or not.

Entering into WA today, God greeted us to our new home with a Texas style thunderstorm. They don't have too many of them in this part of the world, but the two I've witnessed are amazing. The thunder, lightning, rainbows -- all of it, was just wonderful. It was very refreshing to see, smell and take in.

I've now moved from New Mexico to Texas to the Bay Area of CA to Sacramento to Seattle. For the first time, I'm going to live in a world filled with God's refreshing rain. The words of the Christian song, "Send Your Rain" come to mind. It's going to be a great opportunity for a new experience in life and a new beginning for a new chapter of life.

Love to hear your ideas on making adjustments. Good advice is something I never get too much of.
