Doorways to the Soul, Elisa Davy Pearmain, p. vii. "Hide and Seek," Cleveland: The Pilgrim Press. Copyright (C) 1998. Used by Permission for this one time use. No reprints or use permitted. All Rights Reserved.

Once upon a time when the earth was new, the Creator decided that she wanted to play a game of hide-and-go-seek.

It was at about this same time that the Creator's angels were having a meeting. They were afraid that people might try to kidnap or monopolize God, and so they decided that she had to be hidden in a safe place, a place where all people would be able to find her if they searched, but where none could own her exclusively. So they sent out angel scouts to find this perfect place....

Meanwhile, the Creator had already found her hiding place—the safest, fairest, and warmest place to hide, and yet the most difficult to find—inside each and every human heart.
