“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
Hiding his eyes behind two pudgy hands, my toddler grandson starts counting. “One, two, three, four, five…” His excitement builds and he rushes, “Eight – nine – ten…here I come!” He’s now in hot pursuit of his slightly older sister. Oh, how he thrills in the pursuit.
He searches all the obvious spots—behind the couch or the chair, under the kitchen table, or behind a closed door—and calls her by name. Barely unable to contain her giggles, his sister stays hidden until she just can’t stand it anymore and yells, “I’m here! I’m here!” And willingly, she becomes the pursuer.
We still play Hide-N-Seek—you and I—only it’s not as obvious.
(Pssst...You'll find me playing over at 7 Days Time today. Join us, wont' you?)
