My First Christmas 

In Heaven


By: Tena M. Hixon 

and Pamela Hixon Rhea


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 im 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 leave 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.


In loving memory of our dad
