What Are You Hiding From? (Hide and Seek Part II)

Seek within ***OLW challenge***
An ancient Chassidic ( HAH SIDIC) parable tells the story of Yechiel, the young grandson of a Chassidic rabbi, who once played hide-and-seek with a friend. When it was his turn to hide, he found a great hiding place where he waited, somewhat impatiently, for his friend to find him.

With tears streaming down his face, Yechiel ran to his grandfather and told him what had happened. Deeply moved by the hurt of his grandson, the rabbi also broke into tears saying, “God says the same thing – ’I hide, but no one tries to find me’
