something for those of you who will be celebrating your first Christmas


Recommended Posts

Rather it is a friend or a loved one, I know that the first Christmas without that special someone is very tough Christmas, I faced this last year without my Daddy. the next Christmas seems so much more special. because you know that your loved one would want you to go on and celebrate this special time of year.

 

Christmas was my Daddy's favorite time of year. so I have had to remember that and do what He would want me to do.

 

I found this poem that I would like to share with all of you who are facing your first Christmas without that special someone;

 

 

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 the 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.

But I am 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 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 pure 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 blessing or love

He has for each of you.

 

So have a Merry Christmas and

wipe away that tear.

Remember, I am spending Christmas with

Jesus Christ this year.

I am sorry... sometimes I think God knows our shoulders are stronger then we do, for us to carry these heavy burdens that we carry..

This is my 2nd Christmas without my mom. It was also her favorite time of the year. She sooo enjoyed giving to others in any way that she could.

 

Thank you LR

I lost my Dad this past May (Memorial weekend) and my Mother passed in September. They were both very healthy this time last year. Of course, I had just had open heart surgery this time last year.

This has been a tough year.

 

 

I hope that 2010 will be better for you
