"HOLEY" HOPEFULNESS

There's a gaping hole in my soul

Big enough to drive a truck through.

It's not a fear
ful emptiness
No reason for panic

But--

Anticipation -- Breathlessness

WAITING

HOPING

nose-pressed-to-the window

EXPECTING

my God

HIMSELF

to enter in

Yes, Uganda... Karamajong where I was teaching at the spiritual warfare conference for those poverty-stricken pastors. These photos were from the balcony of the hostel where we were staying. On the ground level -- overwhelming brokenness -- on the sky level, "amazing"ness.

Very powerful way to express hope...thank you!

NOT "Karamojong"... "Kabujagera" is the right location. DUH! For someone who lived there intensely, I shouldn't have made that mistake. Glad I realized it.
