Gift of Finest Wheat ~ Highwood Country

MarveLes Art StudiosBlogs, Photography 5 Comments

Last Wednesday evening we went out to Highwood, to our friend’s, the Pasha’s, for bible study,and a wonderful dinner and evening together. 

Thanks everyone for the fun comments on “Giggle!”  I loved it!  *Due to my cataract surgery (which went well–will do surgery on my left eye this Thurs), I am not able to read {or type} lol very well upclose {yet!}, and especially on the compter, but here is a post prepared earlier.. I hope you … EnJOY!  

On the way back we enjoyed the glorious, flowing wheat fields, set against that backdrop of Big Sky and the Highwood Mountains.  It’s about an hour’s drive due to gravel roads, but is only about 38 miles from Great Falls.  Highwood is where we attend church services, which is 27 miles from Great Falls.  It’s also a place we would love to live in… someday. {God willing}

All of my photos were taken on our way home, about 9:00 pm.  

The wheat crop looks sooo good out here; and the green spring wheat is thick, too.   And the clouds put on a show for us that evening, too.   AMAZING.

Dramatic skies… and with a dry lightning storm moving in, although it did seem to have a little bit of rain in the clouds, it was mostly of the dangerous type.

I love the old signs… the textures, the bullet holes… the rust and well, the age.  “Shonkin” is what this sign used to read, and it is the general term that describes the area above Highwood, MT, where the Pasha’s farm.

We were maybe about 10 miles from Great Falls when we stopped along the highway so I could take this shot {below}.  To the left of the big clouds and radiating from the ground, is a small, smokey cloud where lightning struck and started a fire; likely we think it was a wheat field as the smoke was very dark and black.

We pray for a safe harvest for everyone, and for protection for all who work to bring the fruit of their labors, home for the rest of us to enjoy.  Thank you Lord, for the Gift of Finest Wheat, and for the One who Satisfies the Hungry Heart.  In your  Son’s precious name, Amen.
