Sound familiar? If your in your early 20’s you might remember an indoor playground featuring games and elaborate indoor mazes complete with slides, climbing play structures, and ball pits. A place where a little imagination went a long way and provided hours a fun in my youth. While the company eventually went bankrupt and was purchased by Chuck E. Cheese, the memories linger on of all the twists of the tubes and the surprises they led to.
One of my fondest memories there was with my father. He had followed my brother and I up the tubes, which was not an easy thing for a full grown man. It was so exciting being chased and watching for him in that labyrinth of goodness. He might be waiting for you around the corner or below the slide. It was a mystery that I took so much delight in.
A mystery that continues to this day with a Heavenly Father who chases me through all the unexpected twists and turns in my life. Hiding, waiting.. ever so patiently for me to find him. Longing to be found to see the surprise on my face and excitement in my heart. Expectation.-. anticipation for Him. He could be around the bend or hiding the depths of the ball pit. Who knows?!, but I will have to look.. and so discover.
