My First Christmas In Heaven

I am borrowing this poem from Paul's' blog site "Still Rambling".

It is such a touching poem that I thought it would be well worth printing out again.
I am sure that Paul will not mind!

"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 light 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 up here!
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring
For it's beyond description, to hear the angels sing!

I know how much you miss me,I see the pain inside 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 send you each a special gift,from my Heavenly home above,
I send you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, "love's" the gift,more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important, in the story Jesus told.

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

As I read this poem on Paul's site the other day it brought to my mind the different people that I have met this year on the blog world that have had to say good bye for now to loved ones and I really feel bad for them spending the first Christmas without a part of their own heart.
Here are just to mention a few some of these my friends,
Sabine,[Sunshine and Shadow] who's dad in November,happily saved, left for heaven, Laura-Mae[A Perfecting Love] whose grandpa passed away into the loving arms of his Savior, Morgan Denise[A splash of Color in Your Day] who had to say good bye to her dear grampa, Jessica[A Young Mother Who Lives in a Cute White House"] who's dear uncle died leaving a little hope to the family that he was saved..
And then friends that most of us know and who have met at concerts; Warren Parker of the "Parker Trio", Douglas Riley of Gold City and Anthony Burger the pianist of Gaither and Friends are now singing in Heaven!

It is a comfort that these dear ones are in heaven and even though their loved ones here below have felt the sadness of being without them, this poem that Paul put on his blog can hold some real comfort to those who remain behind for now but have the blessed hope of seeing them again!

And to quote my friends Wess and Susan Adams AGAIN! "You haven't lost something when you KNOW where it is!"

Yes, it is a comfort to know that while they're not here anymore, they are there and there is hope to see them again. I know that I'll get to see my dad again someday. I'm grateful for that.

Mrs. Mac said...

Without such hope, we have jo joy. Beautiful poem you borrowed. I like your parting words: "You haven't lost something when you KNOW where it is!"

This poem woud mean a lot to them. I am so glad that Paul put it in.. Such a comfort!...Love Terry

My first son died 14 years and two weeks ago. Christmas always has something bittersweet about it for me.

Thanks for the kind words.

I wanted to thank you for dropping by and commenting on the painting I did for my church last Sunday (Christmas Eve).

I also wanted to invite you to help yourself to the finished image (completed this afternoon).

If you can use it in anyway, please feel free.
