Hide and Seek

Hide and seek – is it only a child’s game?

Not necessarily. Adults like to figure things out, hunt for buried treasure, and make ground-breaking discoveries.

It is in man’s DNA to investigate and unearth. Personally, I believe God intended it to be so, and I wouldn’t be surprised if He takes great delight in our discoveries, much like a parent watching their child do the same.

The Scriptures say, “It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them” (Proverbs 25:2 NLT). Almost sounds like a cosmic game of hide and seek.

However, people hide things too, hoping (or not) that their stash will be found. Geocaching is a world-wide hide-and-seek adventure enjoyed by thousands.

Sometimes people conceal information and items for less than honorable reasons, but often they do it simply for safety or protection, as in the case of my heroine in An Unexpected Redemption.

Today just happens to coincide with my monthly blog post for Heroes, Heroines, & History. The post is titled, “Safe, Secure, and Secret,” and discusses Victorian-era trunks with secret compartments similar to the hiding place used to conceal a private journal in An Unexpected Redemption.

Speaking of journals, where do you suppose I hid my very first journal as a child? If you’re curious, stop by Heroes, Heroines, & History to find out.
