The baby was staring intently at other people, and as soon as he recognized a human face, no matter whose it was, he would respond with absolute delight.
I realized that this is how God looks at us, staring into our face in order to be delighted.
I suspect that only God, and well-loved infants, can see this way.
Even when we try to run away from our troubles, as Jacob did, God will find us, and bless us, even when we feel most alone, unsure if we’ll survive the night.
God will find a way to let us know that [God] is with us in this place, wherever we are, however far we think we’ve run.
