Christmas With the King

 

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.

MOM

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…

Blessings

Wow I needed this today. As you may know my mom passed away last Jan 21st. She passed of cancer as well, my dad 7 wks later and I miss them more than I could of ever imagined. This is my first holidays, birthdays w/o them. I was with my mom when Jesus took her home. It was the most peaceful thing I have ever witnessed and brought me such comfort. God is faithful. Bless you and yours this Christmas. Thank you for this post today!

I cried as I read this. Thank you so much for sharing it. Four years ago December 31, I lost my beautiful father who was not only my father buy my best friend. The peace that helps me through is the fact that he knew Christ as is Savior and I look forward to the day when I shall see him once again.
I am sorry for your loss. My heart aches for you because even though time aids in helping us deal with our loss, the scars on the heart remain.
I wish for you a Merry Christmas this year and trust that you are remembering and thankful for those precious times you spent with your dear mother.
God bless you.

Becky, I also lost my mom to ovarian cancer in 2005. She would have been 85 next week. I lost my dad two years before her and she missed him terribly every day. I try to think of them in heaven doing the polka and playing pinochle. :-)

Thank you for this poem, Becky. My dad passed away 4 years ago too, on Dec. 9th. It was 2 days before my parents' 55th wedding anniversary. He had battled several types of cancer for 16 years so when he died, I was happy that he didn't have to suffer anymore, even though we were all so sad to lose him. But I know we'll be together in Heaven someday and that's what gets me through the hard days of missing him.

Thanks for this. My brother died four weeks ago, today. It has been a very hard holiday season. I just have to keep remembering that he isn't suffering anymore!

Becky...this poem is very comforting right now. I lost my father 3 years ago tomorrow to lung cancer. I knew he was in a much better place but it hurt to know he wasn't with us for the first time.

Thank you so much for this post. You are so sweet and thoughtful.

XO,
Jane

I am sorry for your loss as I share your grief with my own. My dear mother died in March. It seems like yesterday. The holidays have been so hard. Thank you for sharing this poem with us. It really does help.

becky, first of all, i am sorry for the loss of your mother. i did not know.
secondly, i shared this same poem on my blog after having lost my oldest
son, jordan, in 2009. you know, we share the same perspective with our
faith in the fact that this earthly time is temporary. life ever after, in HEAVEN,
with our father God will be so beautiful...and without tears...and without loss...
but more importantly, together again with those we love.

God bless you and your family this year and always....

becky
