Hide 'n Seek

'You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,' declares the Lord..." Jeremiah 29:13-14

His toddler feet pedal past me resting only when he's found a suitable hiding place behind the rungs of a dining room chair - the one his daddy usually occupies. Through uncontainable giggles he yells, "Come find me, Grams!"

Playing along, I seek him out behind curtains, under the couch, around corners and with every failed attempt he squeals, "I'm here, Grams! I'm here!"

Amused by his own clever hiding skills he's more excited about being found than staying hidden. His heart soars when I finally spot his big blue eyes twinkling between the rungs of his hiding place and he runs to catch my embrace as I announce, "I found you!"

There's something about that pursuit that thrills this little boy...

    1. Good morning, Tracy. Been thinking of you a lot lately. May you continue to feel God's powerful peace as your journey continues. Thankful we serve a God that wants to be sought and embrace His children.


  2. Smiling from the picture you chose Dawn! :) Yes, I'm seeking Him along with you... knowing He actually wants to be found adds so much joy to my day! Thank you lady! ~ Blessings out, Amy
