Quote of the Day –  “God chose the stable for His Son to be born in for an important reason. You see, when God sent His only Son to live on this earth, He made a strategic decision not to shelter Him from the harsh realities of this life. God had no intention of shielding His Son by having Him born into the make believe world of the rich and famous…..Jesus understands, He’s been there.“  – Dr. Bill Hybels in The Heart of Christmas
