Spring is a season of change for it brings new leaves and new flowers to grow. Now I feel the warm sun kissing my face and my eyes admiring the blue skies more frequently. I turn my head up and watch in awe the beautiful creation of God. I am thankful to live in a place, we call California for so many reasons. Did you know that the Golden State is the largest populous state in the entire nation?
I am thankful I live in this state, even though there are a few things I wish I could change, like the freeway traffic and sudden earthquakes. We do many things around here in Cali, such as making movies and growing quality produce all year round. On the same day, I can go skiing in the morning and tanning at the beach in the afternoon. Go see documentary movies in art house theatres and shop for good food at farmers markets. We also have some of the most famous restaurants in the world. I can eat homemade Italian pasta and Mediterranean food at the same time in one place.
The other day, Natalie and I went to Spumoni Italian Café with Roberto and Deborah Miranda. The restaurant is a nice place that serves classic Italian fare. I had the pesto pasta with chicken that made my mouth water. Natalie and I like to spend time with family and friends, who care for us and want to help us grow as adults. We enjoy spending time with the Mirandas because we talk about history, arts, music and everything in between. Mr. Miranda is a talented musician and teacher so that’s fun. The Mirandas love the Word of God. They demonstrate their love for Natalie and I by sharing their knowledge and kindness. They care for me, pray for me and share their wisdom so I can make decisions according to God’s will.
I encourage anyone, to seek wisdom from people, who know the Word of God and have been on this planet longer. For example, the Mirandas have so much knowledge to offer and speak the truth to me. That is how you show love to someone, which honors the Lord. Why not ask someone, who has been through it before. Wouldn’t you want to know what’s coming next in your life by asking a person of wisdom? Would it be better to say, “I am so glad you shared that with me, I probably never would have known.” For someone to speak into your life means a lot more than you think. I am enjoying this season because it is a season of growth for my life.
