Missing Someone?

Some of you will be missing a loved one this year; a loved one who has passed away.  This season of hope, peace and love may be frequented by feelings of sadness, longing and with unwelcomed changes in tradition.  Pray and trust your heart to make the adjustments.  Reach out to others who love you and look up! 

The following poem is shared every year this time, as a gift to the bereaved.  It is my hope and prayer that it comforts many.
 

“My First Christmas In Heaven”

 

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 that 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 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 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 dear.

And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

 

I sent you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.

I sent you each a memory of my undying love.

 

After all, love is a gift more precious than pure 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 each of you.

 

So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.

Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
