The Perfect Hiding Place

Eccl 12:12 – …much study is wearisome to the flesh.

Never fails, my most richest moments with my Creator often follow fun.

Case in point – tonight a 10 pm game of Sardines (think Hide and Seek) in an unfamiliar 3 story condo with 20 teens.  Pitch black (other than the glow from my mistimed iPhone Tweet), not a sound, even breath holding to preserve the perfect hiding place.

Note to self, do not let Joe Sanchez use restroom in the middle of game again without first confirming that no one is hiding under the sink.

As adults, why don’t we play more?

Study, study, work, work.  Good and necessary. But even the author of Ecclesiastes understood the Biblical principal of play.  We were designed for fun, ahhhh but life often does its thing.

Game over. Teens still laughing about the scares and misses.  And something feels right inside of me.  A nod to God, and I feel His smile too. I sense Him confirming what I tend to forget.  Step away from “life”. Set your self apart from your routine. Laugh, be silly, play Hide and Seek.

Find YOUR perfect hiding place.  Just be sure the cabinets are clear if you have to gooooo……
