It was a stable, not a mansion It was a star, not a parade of dignitaries It was quietude, not a party of notables It was animals, not the masses And yet, It was safety It was protection It was a divinely provided sanctuary It was exactitude It was divine placement It was Love’s gift to humanity It was the coming of the Christ It was the magnitude of divinity recognized It inspires our story, also, if we live in stable quietness, allowing the Christ-idea to animate our thinking and actions And that is bringing the Christmas story daily in consciousness It is not allowing the noise in the inn, the human story of mortality, to dominate our thought It is Christmas to be seen and felt It is seeing our divine oneness dawning It is staying out of the inn and in the stable —Melissa Baker.
