Christmas with Jesus

by Lois Gaddy

I see the countless Christmas trees

around the world below,

with tiny lights like

Heaven's stars

reflecting in the snow.

The sight is so spectacular

Please wipe away that tear,

for I'm spending Christmas

with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs

that people hold so dear

but earthly music can compare

with the Christmas Choir up here.

I have no words to tell you

the joy their voices bring,

for it's beyond description

to hear the Angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,

trust God

and have no fear.

For I'm spending Christmas

with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you the splendor or the peace

here in this place.

Can you imagine Christmas

with our Savior face to face?

May God uplift your spirits

as I tell Him of your love.

And pray for one another

as you lift your eyes above.

So let your hearts be joyful,

and let your spirit sing.

For I'm spending Christmas in Heaven

And I'm walking with the King!

Written by Lois Gaddy after her mother died in November 2005.

There is a similar poem found on my website, Christmas in Heaven.  It may be an adaptation of the poem above.  I have included both as I believe that each can minister to those mourning loss.
