TEXT: Psalm 139:7b - Where can I flee from Your presence?
Have you ever tried to hide -- only to find your spot really wasn't the most creative of hiding places? I care for a two-year-old girl named Elizabeth. We have a rule that shoes must be worn outside to protect from prickly thistles and fire ants. Just the other day Ellie decided she wanted to go outside but was going to take her shoes off first. When I wouldn't let her go outside without her shoes, she had a classic two-year-old meltdown on the floor. I carried on doing something else while she sat and sulked. Then, thinking I couldn't see her, she grabbed a blanket and put it over her head. Little by little she peeked out ever so vigilantly from under the blanket. Then, in a slow and rebellious manner, she proceeded to take off her shoes and socks, one by one, still defiant in her stubbornness. She thought she was hidden under the cover of her blanket.
