Easter Haiku

"and a little child shall lead them..."

Spirit-whispered to my inner ear in the foyer at church Sunday, as I watched my son and the other kids hunt for Easter eggs:

The hunt. It’s not the
keeping but the finding, not
finding but being found.

I am glad to be hunted, glad to be caught. I will live a resurrected life today, as much as I am able. Since tomorrow I have to “die” again anyway, why not enjoy today?
