Scripture Reference;

6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:  7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7 KJV

11For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. 14Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones shouldperish. Matthew 18:11-14 KJV


Hide and Seek:  A Portrait of Mercy by Theresa Anne Moore

Out among the shadows,

Crouched low behind a tree,

I hoped no one would find me.

I hoped no one could see

The frightened little child

Who happened to be me.


I really was ashamed

And just a little scared

That the things I had been up to

Might suddenly be aired,

And it would be quite obvious

That I had grossly erred.


Idle thoughts and fancies,

Dark musings in my head,

The unkind words that weren’t restrained,

The list of vices that stained,

I knew they couldn’t be explained.

They couldn’t be explained”,

The mournful chorus refrained.


I wanted to run to my house

To my favorite place to hide,

But I knew that I would be spied,

So I gave up hope and cried.

I felt helpless and small like a mouse.

There was no one on my side.


Then I heard a whimper.

I looked up in surprise.

Not far from where I was crouching

Was someone just my size.

That someone also was crouching,

Tears falling from her eyes.


She drew her breath in sharply

As soon as she saw me.

Then we both nodded knowingly.

It was plain to her and me,

We shared the same dilemma.

Then we both were so relieved…

To hear “Olly olly oxen free”!
