My View for the Month: This beautiful mural was painted by Australian artist Guido van Helten. It occupies the entire 360 degree surface of a 110 ft. grain elevator in Ft. Dodge, Iowa. Mr. van Helten must be an outdoors type guy. He did this work during the winter months of 2018-2019. As I look at this beautiful silo mural, I almost shutter in disbelief. Yet, there is one thing that could make it better. I wish this disused structure could still be used to hold thousands of bushels of Iowa grain. Then that grain, in turn, would be used to feed hungry people around the world.

Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor the fruit be on the vines, the produce of olives fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation." (ESV) (Habakuk 3: 17,18)
