Serendipity Sundays ~ Something for Paw Paw's 1st Christmas in Heaven

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Handsome Hudson made something special for Paw Paw this year. I bought a fresh wreath with pine cones for Christmas to place at his resting place and Hudson wanted to add an ornament to the wreath. It's hung now which I'm sure makes Paw Paw very happy.

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® wrote a post I read today and I couldn't believe how appropriate the poem is she shared. It's perfect for my Geno so I hope you don't mind I'm posting the poem again. Thank you Rebecca


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’m 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.


For I have no words to tell you, The joy their voices bring. For it is beyond description, To hear an angel sing.


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 light your spirit, As I tell Him of your love; So then pray for one another, As you lift your eyes above.


Please let your heart be joyful, And let your spirit sing. For I’m spending Christmas in Heaven, And I’m walking with the King!


I know how much you miss me; I see the pain inside your heart. But I’m 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 the gift, More precious than pure gold. It was always the 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 the love He has for you.


So have a Merry Christmas and Wipe away that tear. Remember I’m spending Christmas With Jesus Christ this year!
