First Christmas in Heaven For Aunt Lilly


bernie and i send all of our best wishes to you all..so many blog friends and all of your families...may god richly bless you as you celebrate, not only the coming into the world of the lord jesus but also keeping in mind WHY he came...to die for us and pay for our sins with his own blood and finally to take us to heaven if we do receive his wonderful gift of love.........love bernie and terry




i received this letter a couple of days ago from my dearest friend and i am going to copy a portion of it for you to read..i am sure that felisol and gunnar and serina will not mind.

"Yesterday Gunnar’s aunt Lilly died, while we were visiting.
She had been weakening for a month, and died peacefully. She meant so much to our small family, and she had this giant heart with a place for us as well as her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great great grandchildren.
Now we are feeling a bit empty and lost even though she was saved and I was allowed to wish her a good journey to heaven."


here is gunnar and his dearest aunt lilly who he and felisol and serina were forever visiting.
and here is a lovely poem that i am dedicating to them

I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below
With tiny light, 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 up here.

I have no words to tell you
Of 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 inside your heart,
For I am spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.

I can´t tell you of the splendor
Or the Peace here in this place.
Can you just imagine Christmas
With our Saviour face to face??

I´ll ask Him to lift your spirit
As I tell Him of your love,
So then, Pray for one another,
As you lift your eyes above.

Please, let your hearts be joyful
And let your spirit sing,
For I am spending Christmas in Heaven
And I am walking with the KING.

Author: Wanda Bencke. (1998).

please pray for our precious norwegian family as they prepare for the funeral being held the 26th or 27th and they celebrate aunt lilly's life and say their farewells for now.
it will NOT be a final farewell...
thank you....love terry

Terry, thank you for this nice tribute to Aunt Lilly. She was a wonderful woman and I know that she will be sorely missed by Felisol, Gunnar, and Serina.

What a beautiful tribute to Gunnar's aunt Lilly. I'm sure Felisol and her family were touched that you did this, Terry - you're a thoughtful friend. I'll be praying for them. ♥

Hope you and Bernie had a blessed and cozy Christmas. Thank you for my birthday post at Pals, too! You are loved, dear sister and friend, and I'm so thankful to know you! ♥
