First Christmas in Heaven

Someone sent this to me and I felt like Emma, Kelsey & Lauren wrote it to me. I wanted to share it with you all, especially for those who have lost someone this year. I will read this over and over in the next two weeks as we celebrate Christmas without our baby girls.

My First Christmas in Heaven
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. 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.

That is a beautiful letter Katie. I think you and Jeff are two of the strongest people I have ever meet... I know that this is not how you want to prove your strength, but I think you are both amazing examples of love and faith. Hug Kate for me and know that Daryl and I think of you often and continue to pray for all of you!!!
