Christmas in Heaven

Oh my goodness! I have so much to say, so much to catch up on. We are driving back to Texas from Phoenix right now. We have been gone more than home this past month, so I will hopefully get a chance to catch up. I've been journaling solely on paper lately, since Internet times are sporadic lately. But I will have many pictures to upload and share soon. Well, hopefully soon.
We will arrive home very late tonight, but first we are stopping in Lubbock on the way back. A very close family friend had a stroke, but his health and life is yet another testament to the Lord's faithfulness, as he has more in store on this earth.

I want to leave you with a gift that was sent to me by my precious friend Nikki.

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,
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place.
Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask Him to lift your spirit as I tell Him of your love,
so then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing,
for I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

  1. It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing this!


    Saw that and thought of you. Big Hug!

  3. Kate, that is so sweet...I love it! <3 Chet and I will be ordering it probably, since we haven't ordered him an ornament yet. Thank you for thinking of us.

  4. Sarah: Please know that God will heal your heart in time. Two years ago on Dec 1st my husband of 41 years passed away from a stroke. We were as one and my biggest sadness was he never got to say goodby. On the way home from the funeral home I said a prayer to God that I wished he had time to say goodby. The song Christmas in Heaven came on the radio. God was letting him say goodby to me. Cling to each other for that will add to your strength. What a wonder the human spirit is. One of my prayers to God is to give me peace of heart.
    Peace be with you Sarah,
