Lets think back over two thousand years, to imagine what the Inn may
have been like.
It was probably the Innkeepers own home. He may have had a couple of
extra rooms, to rent out to travelers. This would have given him
some extra money. I wonder if there were even beds. Probably just
mats on the floor. Maybe there was room for several travelers in
each room. We wonder if these mats were kept washed after each use,
or the blankets, if they were provided. Probably each one just used
his own cloak for a cover. My guess is that you paid for a roof over
you’re head and four walls to keep out the wind and storm. There
would have been no privacy.
But, I believe GOD chose a much better spot for his precious Son to
be born. It was all in His plan.
We all know that animals will not eat hay that is old and dirty, so
the hay must have been fresh and sweet smelling. The animals chewing
and soft contented sounds must have been soothing to Mary as she
went through labor. There was privacy and quiet. The animals breath
and bodies must have warmed the area some.
Joseph could have held Mary’s hand and spoke quietly to her with no
crowd of others to be at the birth of her son.
When Jesus was born, Mary could wrap Him in the Swaddling clothes,
she had brought and lay him quietly, in the soft sweet smelling hay.
She must have rested beside Him and gazed in awe at her beautiful
new baby. All in the privacy of the stable.
I feel God must have planned it that way,
He chose the best for His
My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at
Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a
little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the
great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some
hidden part in all of us that screams out, (I BELIEVE IN MORE THAN WHAT I SEE AROUND ME.) You see, somewhere deep down inside we all
believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of
us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is
in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of
Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.
The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.
The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
