Santa’s House

Originally uploaded by claypotparker

Santa was in Albany last night at the home of Red & Shirley Alexander. The boys were mesmerized by the lights that the Alexanders have been putting out for the past sixteen years. Although I had told them to have in mind what they wanted to ask Santa for, they were both a bit tongue tied when they say on lap of the jolly old elf.

Although I know analogies between Santa and God are dangerous, I wonder if there is a comparison in there somewhere with being speechless in the presence of an awesome and holy God, whose dwelling place is far more glorious than any earthly dwelling.
