Up the river from our ranch the North fork of the Shoshone River tumbles from the icy springs and glaciers of Yellowstone Park. Through the years it has left behind in its path unusual rock formations. One of these formations is named Holy City. In stone it mirrors the city of Jerusalem. A marvel in stone.
But an even greater marvel is that the King of Glory would come to earth and choose to be born in a stable. No gold domed palace with fine silks and linens to line a luxurious bed; no host of palace servants to care for Him.Just 5 miles south of Jerusalem lies Bethlehem--the birthplace of our Lord. A stone stable for the animals, with a feed trough for a bed. But a host of angels to announce Him, and lowly shepherds to welcome Him. And so the King of Glory became Man and dwelt among us.
