Christmas in Heaven

It is hard to imagine that this will be our first Christmas without my grandmother. She passed away this past July 24. My family went to a Memorial Service today for her at the cemetery, and the preacher read a poem that made me smile. As we left the service, they handed out bookmarks with this poem on them.

Many of you may have seen this, as I found many references to it when I was searching the Web for the proper attribution. If you are missing a loved one this holiday season perhaps this will help you put things in perspective.

Christmas in Heaven
by Wanda Bencke

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
with tiny lights like heaven’s stars reflecting in 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.

I wish everyone a blessed and peaceful Christmas season!
