Monday we began to roam across California. We went north along the coast highway. It was a surprise to me that the rocky mountains go down to the sea. People even on the coast live on the side of mountains. They call them foothills, but they rise to 2000 feet. My home state is flat as a pancake. We are only 26 feet above sea level. My constant surprise is the people. I was expecting people to protest my US Air Force cap. We went to see the sea otters and elephant seals. We toured William Randolph Herst castle, San Simeon. I am always amazed at the amount of money people have spent for pleasure. I know I am a country boy come to town, but it is beyond my reckoning. God gave people the ability to acquire wealth. The real challenge is not letting the wealth acquire you. I am overwhelmed by the beauty of God in His creation. God has a plan for each of us. It is a good life. But we as individuals have to find out what it is. As I have said before, it isn’t easy, but it is simple. God is waiting for you. And all you have to do is to turn to Him and ask.
