Here’s a poem I wanted to pass along to you. It will be especailly dear to you if you’ve lost a loved one during this year.

My mother and another dear lady were recently given copies of this poem at a special time when the memories of people who had died during 2011 were lovingly honored. Grab a tissue

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 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’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 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.
