I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happier New Year
I am spending my Christmas in Heaven that is crystal clear
I know your heart is broken because I seem so far away
I want you to know; I am in your loving heart to stay
My Soul and Spirit lives within your heart
and I am promising you, we will never part
I will continue to whisper to you like a gentle prayer
trying to assure you, I am in God’s Eternal Loving care
Mail out your Christmas cards and hang up our stocking too
because I am filling your stocking this year just for you
I am stuffing your stockings with Peace, Joy, Happiness, and Love
from all the Angels, Saints, and our Father from Heaven above
I am enjoying the Peace, Joy, Happiness and Love in Heaven
because Jesus died on the Cross with His last words of Seven
Remember the Kingdom of God is there for us all to share
as long as we remain in His Grace until our last prayer
My wish for you this Christmas is that you shall hear
my Joys of Peace and Happiness in Heaven is quite sincere
I am sending you His Gift of Love for you my dear
Have a Merrier Christmas and a Happier New Year
(by Pamela Marie Graul-Gwizdala)
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus’ arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust our Father’s Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth–
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

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 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 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
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 blessing or love he 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.

A rose once grew
where all could see,
a garden wall,
And as the days passed
it spread its branches, straight and tall…
One day, a beam of light
a crevice that had
opened wide ~
The rose bent gently
toward its warmth
then passed beyond
to the other side
Now, you who deeply
feel its loss,
be comforted ~ the rose blooms there ~
its beauty even greater now,
God’s own loving care.

If you knew where I am standing
If you could see the sights I see
If you could hear the angels singing
The songs they sing eternally
If you knew the One I’m holding
Could see the smile He smiles at me
If you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me
I’m resting in the arms of Jesus
No other place would I rather be
So if you shed a tear
Please don’t shed it for me
For if you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me

At last I reach my final home
The gates swing open wide
I get a glimpse of glory
I can’t wait to get inside.
An angel beckons to me
I hurry up to him
He opens up a golden book
And lets me look within.
I see my name is written
On the page that he turns to
He says you finally made it
I’ve been waiting here for you.
He points in one direction
And tells me “go that way”
So I start my tour of heaven
The place I get to stay.
I see the many mansions
And walk the streets of gold
And hear the angels praising God
Just like I had been told.
And then I spot my loved ones
They’ve been here many years
We hug and kiss each other
All smiles, there are no tears.
I look around for Jesus
I know He’ll soon appear
I want to kneel and praise Him
He’s the reason I am here.
He took upon Himself my sins
He paid the price for me
And by His victory over death
He finally set me free.
Free from all my worldly sins
And the evil Satan sent
Jesus came into my heart
Because I did repent.
I’ll finally get to thank Him
When I bow before His throne
For all the times He carried me
When I couldn’t walk alone.
I’ll dwell with Him in heaven
With no sorrow, tears or pain
This was His promise to me
When to this earth He came.
There are many mansions up here
There’s room for all of you
So to join us all in heaven
I’ll tell you what to do.
Accept Jesus as your Savior
He will wash your sins away
He’s waiting here to greet you
When you join us here one day.
(by Emily McAdams)
The night the angels took you
to live with them above-
the world we live in down below
lost someone truly loved.
I know we were extremely blessed
when home with mom you came-
the first thing that we learned of you
‘Buster’ was your name.
Rowdy and rough, you made us laugh
and sometimes made us cry-
you were the youngest of us all
giving anything a try.
Through the years you grew into
the name that you were given-
a name that surely without doubt
came from the wings of heaven.
We were the same, you and I
from looks to our expressions-
we did our share causing mom and dad
Two black sheep, among the five
we were so much the same-
I laid the path with mom and dad
and then along you came.
You lived your life the way you chose
on the edge, some people said-
No matter where you were or what you did
you chose the life you led.
Our family and friends were there
as we wept and cried-
I know God was there watching too
with the angels by his side.
Some would say that can’t be so
some say it isn’t true-
but I know God was watching
the night the angels took you.
( by Leona M. Infantino)
You were so full of life,
Always smiling and carefree,
Life loved you being a part of it,
And I loved you being a part of me.
You could make anyone laugh,
If they were having a bad day,
No matter how sad I was,
You could take the hurt away.
Nothing could every stop you,
Or even make you fall,
You were ready to take on the world,
Ready to do it all.
But God decided he needed you,
So from this world you left,
But you took a piece of all of us,
Our hearts are what you kept.
Your seat is now empty,
And it’s hard not to see your face,
But please always know this,
No one will ever take your place.
You left without a warning,
Not even saying good-bye,
And I can’t seem to stop,
Asking the question why?
Nothing will ever be the same,
The halls are empty without your laughter,
But I know you’re in Heaven,
Watching over us and looking after.
I didn’t see this coming,
It hit me by surprise,
And when you left this world,
A small part of me died.
Your smile could brighten anyone’s day,
No matter what they were going through,
And I know everyday for the rest of my life,
I’ll be missing you.
(by Kelsey Y. Sheppard)
God help me
I feel so helpless
I can’t stop these tears
I can’t stop this tragedy from unfolding
I need help
My tears have flooded this river
Am I drowning or is it the knot in my throat?
I can taste the bitterness
I can feel it
Or is that the knife in my back?
This beating is unrelenting
This treachery is so poetic
By my blood I am betrayed
I am consumed
This anger, this pain, this sadness
How can I still believe that things will be fine?
This rope is unraveling before me
Can I share this burden?
Will anyone help?
God help me
(by Harry A. De Torres)
Lord you care so much
For the tears of a hurting child
Who has felt the grief of tragedy
Now no longer wears a smile
Unable to clearly express
How much he’s hurting inside
Not fully understanding the pain
Nor knowing the reasons ‘why’
He wants so much to reach out
To someone who will listen
Someone that can hold him close
And respond with godly wisdom
For he just needs a grown up
To know what he’s going through
But often we don’t realize his grief
Because we are hurting too
Let him know you care Lord
And will be there when we’re not
The emptiness he feels within
May be filled with you oh God
May he know you as a father
And know you’re by his side
To come and wipe his tears away
When alone he silently cries
Hold him in your arms Lord
So he will be at peace
Allow us all to give him time
In dealing with his grief
For tears may last all night
But joy comes in the morning
So let him grieve throughout the night
For a new day will be dawning.
