A Poem From A Loved One - From Chattanooga Funeral Home

Friday, December 1, 2017

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,

Because I’m 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.

It is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me.

I see the pain inside your heart.

But it’s only for a while that we will be apart.

I’ll ask him to light your spirits as I tell him of your love.

So, please pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

I can’t tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place.

Can you imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face!

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirits sing.

I’m spending Christmas in heaven,

and I’m walking with the King!
