Days of heaven


The choir is in perfect harmony. Crickets, hidden among wheat stalks, chirp softly. Songbirds provide lead vocals from above. A sweet lullaby drifts across the high desert in Washington state. Park your car on the shoulder of a country road and listen. A windmill turret creaks and groans as the wind shifts by God’s hand. You might hear the crack of distant thunder. Sometimes you hear nothing. It’s heavenly. I captured these images with 35mm and medium-format film cameras. It is clear to me that Jesus Christ, who creates all things (Colossians 1:16), carved and shaped this land. And blessed it. Washington is the fourth largest wheat producing state in America. Acre for acre, no state grows more wheat. But I wonder, how long will the blessings last? We live in a post-Christian age. Sin is celebrated openly. Yet God has not removed His hand completely from America. Just head to the prairie and listen. The choir is singing.
