"Christmas in Heaven"

Its 4:21 am on Christmas Eve and I cannot sleep.
I decided to check up on blogs and clicked on katie's keepers.
I have mentioned her before and what a wonderful blog and story she has.
She posted a poem today that touched my heart.
To anyone who has lost a loved one, Christmas is a hard time of the year.
This poem makes you think of Christmas without your loved one in a totally different way...

"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 sound of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you of 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.
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."
