THROUGH A SPIRITUAL LENS

WINNOWING BREEZE OF SPIRIT

Much as I enjoy this photo, I know I can't take full credit for it. The spray of wispy clouds (which I could not manufacture and did not have time to place carefully in the shot) appears to pour into the grain and adds significant drama to the family silhouette below.

What adds even more drama today is knowing where this scene occurred. I was with a Bible Land study group touring seven Middle Eastern countries. Just short decades ago, Biblically reminiscent scenes like this could still be found in many places. This family dwelt in a Kurdish village in northern Iraq, where winnowing was a common activity.
