Spending Christmas With Jesus…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!

I just wanted to stop by and thank all of you for your warm and caring comments!!

Our family is doing as best as can be expected. I just don’t think any of us would of thought that we would of had to bury two beautiful members of our family less than a week apart.

But they are both in heaven now with our Grandparents, who also passed away in the month of December, and I know they are taking good care of them. So, that brings me some peace…

As I had mentioned both of my Grandparents passed away in the month of December my Grandpa in 1986 and my Grandma in 2006.

I read this poem at my Grandma’s funeral…and I thought it very comforting. So, I thought that it may bring all of you who are having to spend Christmas without a loved one this year some peace, as well…

I'm Spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this Year

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 the angels 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 one for another,
As I lift you eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful,
And let your spirit sing.
For I'm Spending Christmas in Heaven,
And I'm walking with the King.
