Removed R's ~ Life Lessons from Peek-A-Boo ~ A to Z Blog Challenge

When I began thinking about the A to Z challenge, I thought for a long time about what I wanted to write. I tried to think of ways to find neat things about the English language with each letter. And then I thought, what if that letter didn’t exist? So I am doing an abbreviated version of my Life Lessons series that I normally do on Fridays, but without using the letter of the day. What would life be like without that letter? Let’s find out...

No this isn't my child, but with
all that twisty hair it could be!
I tossed a blanket on my son’s head today. I also placed one on the head of my youngest female child. They then giggled like hyenas as I began asking about my kids’ location. I faked like I couldn’t find them. Judging by the happy smile when they flung away the “hiding spots” they believed that I couldn’t see them.

But I could.

While they thought they hid well beneath small sections of cloth, I could see them the whole time. I know all the things they did while beneath the blanket. And they had to know that because they also had me hide beneath the blanket.

Yet the acted like I couldn’t see them.

We do the same thing with God. We think if we huddle in the closet we can be safe, his disappointment held at bay. Maybe if sins only happen when no one is with us, they won’t count. And then we pop out and go to God’s house with huge smiles on the same faces that hid away days ago.

What makes you choose to play Peek-A-Boo with God? Do you think it’s successful?

  1. Oh, My! A wonderful post, and so on-the-spot! Thank you so very much. I fear we often do play the peek-a-boo with our Lord and forget He knows all and sees all. Oh, yeah, we do love playing that game with the kids, too. Been awhile since mine were young. They are 59 and 55 right now, with kids and grandkids. God bless you.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Ruby! I hope you find plenty of time to enjoy all those great-grandkids.

  3. there is no use in playing any games with our Lord, is there---i wrote a song about this once---great thought and post

  4. Amen. I don't think I realized how ridiculous our games are to God until I had kids. Then I see them play hide and seek. They think they are so well hidden and I can see and hear them the entire time. I act like that with God so often.
