By the look of things Santa is always ‘happy’. Advertising tends to do that…sell happiness as if it comes in a bottle or a can or a box or something like that.
We can have a tendency to do that with our own lives too, take a short cut to happiness. When God wants us to slow down or stop & wait, we want what we want & we want it now.
We imagine we have the wisdom & God is like a child, we imagine we are King of the road...If you want to put the pedal to the metal you need to have your ears on in the slipstream of life.
