Watching my son and his younger cousin play
"hide and seek" this morning was hilarious
(who has yet to understand the concept of the game)
could not stay put
to conceal his hiding place
while the elder...
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...
really wanted to help...
learn how to find and keep
his position a secret from the seeker
But I quickly realized...
a lesson like that only comes with
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...
there is a perfect hiding place
(a place within a place)
that can be hidden inside of
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
which direction He will show up
which direction He will take me next,
but learning to just
go with the flow
in the beauty of His presence
