"Where my soul is at home
and the longing in my soul
is echoed and met in the lonely places—
in the wild Highlands of my Scottish forebears
echoing down the centuries
to meet and touch the need I did not know I had.
Have you set these places LORD?
Have you set these places where our souls
reach out of us
to something beyond?
Is it you calling us?
Does your soul yearn for us
as ours years for you?
Have you set places where our souls can touch—
yours and mine?"
Some Questions to Ponder
What places are Soul Places for you? In what places do you feel a sense of rest or peace? Or of being especially close to God or to your deepest self?
Are there themes in the places you dream of going to? What regions or cities or types of places have consistently exerted an attraction? What are the things you imagine finding there?
