First Christmas in Heaven

My First Christmas in Heaven
Author Unknown


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 this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
but the sounds of the 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 in your heart,
but I am not so far away. We really aren’t apart.

So be happy for me dear one. 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 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 count the blessings or love he has for you.

So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear,
remember I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year


Dear Jacob,

We miss you so much. I hope that you are enjoying your Christmas and that you can see all of the lights down here. I hope that Christmas is wonderful in Heaven and that you always feel surrounded by love. We love you just as much as we would have if you were here in our arms and we will always be sad that you were called away so soon. Last Christmas, we were so sure that we would have our baby in our arms by this Christmas. Then we found out about you in January and it seemed like our hopes for that would come true. You will always be included in our everyday lives and in all of the special events and holidays. We have alot of ornaments on the tree just for you. I hope you like the bear we got to include in our family pictures. Your Dad and I get really sad everytime we look at it and even sadder when we hold it.

We wish more than anything that we were holding you.

I hope you were there to welcome August and Cub when they joined you. You have so much company up there. It is beartbreaking to see all of the babies that are up there with you, and all of the pain that their families are going through. Please help all of those families to feel their babies close and to feel some peace.

Please help you Dad and I to feel you close. We thinking about you constantly and miss you every second.

We love you so much,

Mom

What a sweet letter to Jacob, Dana. The poem and your letter are so heartbreaking. I wish our children were with us this season. But I am comforted thinking that they are together in Heaven watching over their families on Earth. I am so glad that Christmas was a little easier. So many people were thinking about him and sending him love. And that always helps, I know! I love you!
