First Christmas in Heaven

This was sent to me this morning by someone who reads my blog.  Thank you Mary, it's beautiful and so comforting.  This is my first Christmas without my Mother and my Dad and MaryAnn.  We lost all three of them within six months. 


I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights like heaven’s stars, reflecting on the snow.
    The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear,
 For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs, that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music can’t compare with the Christmas choir up here.
   I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
     For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,  I see the pain in your heart,
          But I am not so far away, we really aren’t apart.
 So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you near,
And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I send you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above:
           I send you each a memory of my undying love.
        After all, “Love” is the gift more precious than gold.
       It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

     Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do,
       For I can’t count the blessings or love He has for you.
         So have a Merry Christmas, and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
