Writing out my Christmas cards made me a little sad knowing that some of my friends and loved ones are no longer about this year and I know that many friends in blog land have lost loved ones so I thought I would share this verse that a friend sent me when my Mum passed on. I hope it might give someone a bit of comfort.
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 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, even though I am so far away, we really aren't apart.
So, be happy for me, loved ones. You know I hold you dear.
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 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 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
Love and Christmas Blessings,
