Scavenger Hunt...

So I have been thinking about scavenger hunts lately... you remember the game from your kid-days. You get a list of random things (0ur's always contained a green tissue) that you had to go scavenge from the neighbors... they were good times... I still remember the one from my 11th birthday, pouring rain and my aunt Phyllis carrying a golf umbrella to help keep 3 10/11 yo girls dry.

Anyway, I have been thinking about them because I have been working on a decluttering scavenger hunt from FlyLady's website... a list of random places to declutter that we might not otherwise think of.

So, this really got me to thinking (I know ... its scary) I sometimes think God made the world a scavenger hunt. The (very partial) list would look something like this:

  • Penicllin

  • Paper

  • DNA mapping

  • Ethanol

  • Great Marriages

  • Jell-O

The things on the list are things He knows the secret to, but we need to find them... like pencillin from mold...tree pulp into paper...corn into fuel for ethanol...itty bitty pieces of things into DNA maps... Love and forgiveness (and HIM) in great marriage...Jell-O, at every church event.

I do sometimes think there must be so many "secrets" that God has planted into our everyday lives... it is like a scavenger hunt.
