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 that 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 very 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 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't count the blessings or love He has for you.
So, have a Joyous Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I'm spending Christmas...with Jesus Christ this year.

On Christmas day in 1997, Lysandra, a 13 years old handicapped
daughter of Wanda Bencke slipped into a coma for 5 days
before passing into eternity. Wanda, wrote this little poem
during those difficult 5 days, as a way to remember the hope
believers have even in the face of death. It has become a
favorite poem across the world this time of the year...
