This is for those of you who, like me, have suffered a loss in your life. Maybe your loss was years ago, and you still feel sad during this 'Season of Joy'. For me, it was to be my only child. I lost him on December 14, 1999. A close friend of mine lost her father-in-law suddenly about 2 weeks ago. And this week, our County Manager's mother-in-law passed away from a sudden illness. My dear friend and 'partner in crime', Julie, is feeling a tremendous loss this year without her mother, who passed away earlier this year. I hope this blesses your heart, as it has mine.
My first Christmas in Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees, around the world.
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away your 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 way, 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 gold.
Love was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other like my father said to do.
I can't count the blessings of love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away those tears,
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
