As I headed for home I couldn't help but think about how Mt. Rainier to me, is like the Holy Ghost. It is always there, though sometimes because of an overcast forecast it is imperceptible. Similarly the Holy Ghost is always there for us, however, when are spirits are clouded over in sin or spiritual neglect we may not even remember it's there. Mt. Rainer can be if we allow it to be, a constant reminder of God's love for us. So is the the job of the Holy Ghost, a comforter to help us feel God's love. Mt. Rainer is the single most dominant landmark of the state of Washington. Most of us who live in Western Washington are constantly aware of it's presence. So should me be of the Holy Ghost. The presence of the Spirit should be a massive landmark in our souls. I can always look at Mt Rainier to get my directional bearrings. So to should we all look to the Holy Ghost to help lead our way.
Anyway...3 hours later when I finally sit down to write down my thoughts it doesn't read the way it felt. But the next time you look up at our beautiful mountain or one of your own, let it's strength remind you of that strength within you that is always yours, the Holy Ghost.
