Gas Station Jesus

Is it just the pictures or has Jesus shrunk? The one we saw is nowhere near as tall as the one in the earlier photo. Has there possibly been a Second Coming after the initial one rose into someone's garage? Unfortunately we did not take a photograph, so we sincerely hope that someone can make a comparative photo in the near future. Until then, be reassured that Jesus's spotlight is still on, showing the way.

Jesus hasn't shrunk, honest. He just looks bigger in photos when kids are posed next to him. Also, there are two Jesi at this gas station; you may have only seen the smaller one.

Watched a woman walk her dog over to the Lamb of God. The dog sniffed the back of the Holy Redeemer's robe and she spiritedly reigned him in. Fortunately, no baptism today!

It was awesome today! And now, there's also a Mary with infant statue. Bonus.

He's back!

He is risen! Or at least re-glued to his concrete base . 6/8/13.
