Mount Rainier

Seeing Mount Rainier brought back many memories from the time we lived in the Seattle area. I really loved looking at the mountain, well, at least when you could see it. I remember when I was told that the locals could even forecast the weather by looking at Rainier. If you could see it, that meant it was going to rain. If you couldn’t see the mountain, it was raining. I wonder if that is why it’s spelled “Rain”ier? It truly is a very beautiful place to live.

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God
(Psalms 90:2).

  1. We have lived in the shadow of Rainier for 8 years, and are about to relocate back to the south. We will certainly miss the view that the Northwest has to offer. That’s a great pic you posted…glad you got a clear day when you were here in order to capture it on film!! It was a pleasure to finally meet your family in Federal Way when you came through. We will catch you on one of your east coast tours, Lord-willing!

  2. Steve, your description of weather in this area makes me smile! We live in an Eastside suburb from Seattle and travel the 520 bridge several times a week. You are so right — if you can see the mountain, rain is coming and if you can’t, it’s already here!

    I am so grateful for the beauty of the place I call home, though. The rain is comforting if we haven’t had some for awhile. My mother (who has Alzheimers and has recently been moved to assisted living/memory care) has a home in the desert of Nevada. I spent a week there in early February and although there is evidence of God’s provision to the landscape of that area, I was so grateful to come home to my GREEN!

    In your travels, you must see a bit of every type of climate, and I’m sure you are grateful to come home to what is familiar. We love the photos your family posts during your travels. Do you ever miss living in this area? If it’s not too personal, what town did you live in?

    Blessings to your family and thank you for your ministry!
    We do miss the area. However, we don’t miss all the traffic. It has gotten much worse than when we lived there. We first lived in Federal Way for 3 years and Kent for 2 years.


  3. Hi Maxwells!

    I’m glad to see that you had a blessed West Coast journey, and you are home safely!

    We found out recently that we are PCSing (military change of station) to McChord AFB, WA. When I saw this beautiful picture of Mt. Rainier, I smiled! :o)

    The Lord has answered our prayers, and is giving us a new home. We are delighted to see where He leads us in our new life in WA. We will be there in early August, God-willing.

    May the Lord continue to bless you all! Thank you for not being ashamed to proclaim the Word of God!

    In Christ,
