    THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE MANY WHO LOST LOVED ONES THIS PAST YEAR...

    "MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN"

    I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below.
    With tiny lights like Heaven's stairs, reflecting on the snow.

    The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tears,
    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 is 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 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.

    This is great! In my church, two brothers left this world this year, and I know that their wives will miss them so much this Christmas. I'm going to share this with those of the church who held these men dear.

    Just thought I'd bump this up as it is even closer to Christmas. May we remember to pray for those who have lost someone dear to them this year.

    SheEagle,
    This is my first Christmas without my momma--she left the Land of the Dying and entered the Land of the Living this past April. Thanks for the poem--I can hardly wait to see her!
