This picture\experience (Bird in flower pot)
reminds me of an article I read during my doctoral work.
The article was on the playfulness\mystery of God.
The story was told of a child playing
hide and seek with her father. He closed his eyes and
counted giving the child time to hide.
Just as the father would open his eyes and
begin to look for his young daughter,
she would sneak up softly behind him and
giggle with delight when she touched
"home base" where he sat; she would then exclaim
The author then wrote how he likes to think of God as being
like a child delighting in the intimacy,
back and forth action found in "play."
