My step-dad and I had a quirky little game we played that lasted into adulthood. We’d hide a golf ball in some peculiar place for each other to find – his pillow, my purse, his lunch, my shoe. Even though my dad has long since passed away, I can’t help but giggle and think of him each time I see a golf ball.
Jesus, thank You for all the ways You tuck Yourself into our days to keep our thoughts and hearts returning to You.
Here’s a simple poem to encourage us to turn to Him today.
Joseph deeply desired
brother Benjamin to stay
so he devised a plan
and cleverly made a way
by setting Benjamin up
with a stolen silver cup
- and all his brothers -
to return again that day.
“Now his heart yearned for his brother . . .” Genesis 43:30
