My First Christmas in Heaven

It has been exactly one year ago today since my dad has passed away. It's been harder then I thought it would be trying to push away those feelings of reliving those moments over and over. My older sister Rachel passed away nine years tomorrow as well. Just overall rough time of year.I have this poem that I was going to read at his funeral but I couldn't find it the moment before I went up on stage to talk. This poem was written by a 13 year old boy who died of a brain tumor that he had battled for four years. He died on December 14, 1997. He gave this to his mom before he died. His name was Ben. I love this poem and it gives me peace to know that my dad and my sister are with our savior right now.

My First 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 withJesus 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. was always most important the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, my Father said to do. I can't count the blessing or love 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
