Watching my son and his younger cousin play "hide and seek" this morning was hilarious
(click here for a snippet of "Hide Me")
(who has yet to understand the concept of the game)
could not stay put long enough to conceal his hiding place
while the elder...
(played along, pretending to be surprised, upon "finding" the restless younger)
I could hear them roaming throughout the house, and when they found their way into my room
I tried to help...
wanted to help...
the younger learn how to find and keep his position a secret from the seeker
But I realized a lesson like that only comes with
And that it is two lessons really...
Learning to find a valid hiding space
Learning to be quiet while in that space
It is impossible to teach 37 years worth of hiding knowledge to a 3-year old in a moment
But if he only knew...
that there is a perfect hiding place
|My first trip to "The Grand Canyon"|
A place within a place...
that can be hidden inside of
a moment of quiet reflection
And I'm glad that I've found that place
A place in plain view
where I can remain hidden
while learning to be
in the moment
which direction He will show up
which direction He will take me next,
but just learning to
go with the flow
relax, enjoy, and hide
in the beauty of His presence
