Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Christmas in Heaven!

Posted by wordforit on December 21, 2007

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 that tear
for I am spending CHRISTMAS


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


I know how much you miss me,

I see the pain inside your heart
for I am spending CHRISTMAS


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

 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.

Lysandra Kay Bencke was my thirteen-year-old handicapped daughter. On Christmas day 1997, Lysandra had a seizure and was in a coma for five days before she died. During those five days, I wrote the poem “Christmas in Heaven”. I sent it out in a belated Christmas cards to friends and relatives that year. They also sent it on to other friends and relatives, thus the poem and the story behind it have been changed. See The story behind the poem .

    Thanks for sharing this. I love sweet children’s voices, and while I was listening to this, I thought for the hundredth time what peace the gospel of Christ brings. I sincerely don’t know how people face grief and loss and despair without it.

    I cannot imagine life without Christ’s strength and hope!
    I am in awe of the “wee ones”…I’ll be going to my mom’s this week end and will see everyone together as we celebrate Christmas, including the newest additions. Such a Blessing!

    God’s Love and Blessings to You, Jayne!
