Yes, it’s Christmas time! It is supposed to be happy, fun, and full of magic…
but what if your heart is aching? What if you are missing someone you love here at Christmas?
I’d like to dedicate this poem to all of you who are mourning someone close to your heart today…here at Christmas time.
Christmas With the King
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 your tears,
For I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sound of music can’t compare with the Christmas choir up here.
For I have no word to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description to hear an angel sing.
I can’t tell you the splendor or the peace here in this place.
Can you imagine Christmas with our Savior, face to face?
I’ll ask Him to light 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’m spending Christmas in Heaven
And walking with the King.
On this day, four years ago, we lost my mom to ovarian cancer…
and I read this poem at her funeral, one week before Christmas.
It helped me get through the Holidays. Maybe you, or someone you know, need this poem as comfort through this Christmas season. Your heart may be aching, however, I hope you can find joy in our dear Savior’s birth…the One that came, so that we could spend forever with Him.
Just know that this life is hard and broken at times, but what Jesus has in store for us in Heaven will be worth it all.
Do you know Him?
Merry Christmas, friends! Sending hugs…
