I watched some children play hide-and-seek at a party recently. The little girl turned away, squeezed her eyes closed, and counted. Then, with a loud giggle, she spun back around. The look on her face when she turned was one of pure joy and excitement as she anticipated finding her friends.
We are invited this day to turn our hearts towards God. May we do so with great anticipation and find joy in discovering that God is ready to be found.
