The First Noel
Posted by Becky Carroll on December 25, 2007
In this case, a pregnant woman, ready to have her baby at any moment, went with her husband to a hotel far from her home. Even though she was weary and at the point of going into labor, the hotel turned her away. They didn’t even book her at another hotel nearby or offer her a free stay in the future. Instead, she and her husband had to go to a nearby barn to stay the night. While she was there, her baby was born among the barn animals. Of course, this is the story of the birth of Jesus who, Away in a Manger, overcame a poor customer experience and entered this world on a Silent Night.
I wish all of you and your families a peaceful and joyful Christmas!
