THE SPIRIT OF SANTA CLAUS
I invite you today to read an old writing of mine about The Spirit of Santa Claus.
I love analogies and many of the advent devotions you will read are life experience analogies. This writing from 2010 is an analogy on anticipation. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ and prepare for Christ to come again, we do so with anticipation.
After you read about the Spirit of Santa Claus, every time you see the anticipation of giving and receiving during this advent season, you may bring to mind the anticipation of Christ.
I choose the above Bible verse on the margin strip that goes with my story in that as I lay awake at night thinking I have heard Santa, I was "yearning in the night" and as I was waiting for the clock to tick tock while laying in the early morning under the Christmas tree, I was "longing."
May you yearn to celebrate the baby Jesus this season and long for Christ to come again as you prepare your heart this advent season.
