I had a HUGE breakdown last night, a combination of things.  The holidays getting closer and closer, the first snow, the 5 month anniversary.  All just TOO much.  I had friend who's mom died of cancer suggest this poem to me.  It is beautiful and so very true.  I plan on making ornaments for my mom and grandpa using this and also one to put on grandma's grave. 


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 SOUND 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 SAVIOR 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’m walking WITH THE KING.
