Just Another Day in Paradise

Yesterday my daughter and I loaded the back of the pick-up truck with 7 boxes and 11 bags of discards to take to the thrift store. 

Now there is room in my moms old steamer trunk
for some of my daughters' treasured toys

And today the discarding continues, it feels good. But it also feels good to get out and enjoy this beautiful world. 

Paradise at Mount Rainier with Edith Creek and Tatoosh Range

After another powerful message at church on Saturday night we chose to head for the mountains Sunday morning. Needless to say we did not require long underwear! It was in the 60s and with the sun reflecting off the snow and the workout snowshoes provide we were just plain hot!

You can see the steam coming off the top

We packed a snack for lunch.

Our view for lunch

We've been promised rain for next Sunday, that's fine, we'll be glued to the TV.

I hope you, too, can take time out from your everyday activities to celebrate the beauty of God's creation!

Heading back down


Sing for joy, O heavens; shout, O earth. Break forth with song, O mountains, for the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion upon them in their sorrow. 
  --  Isaiah 49:13

The end!

  1. Steamy snow - an oxymoron if ever I heard one !!

    1. Steamy snow in January is not a good thing. Looks like a water shortage next summer.

  2. I have never seen steaming snow. How awesome! These pictures of God's artistry are awesome!

    1. Made for a warm, beautiful day. I love getting out in nature, but remind myself we are His greatest creation, a little lower than angels...(Psalm 8:5)
