My First Christmas in Heaven

I see the countless Christmas Trees around the world below, with tiny lights like heaven’s stars, reflecting the snow. The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away your tears, for I am sharing 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 here. I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring. It’s far beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me. I see the pain within your heart. But I am not so far away, we really aren’t apart. So be happy for me, loved ones, you know I hold you dear. And 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 those tears, for I am sharing Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
