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 that tear.
For 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.

For I have no words to tell you,
The joy their voices bring.
For it is beyond description,
To hear an angel sing.

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 light your spirit,
As I tell Him of your love;
So then pray for one another,
As you lift your eyes above.

Please let your heart be joyful,
And let your spirit sing.
For I’m spending Christmas in Heaven,
And I’m walking with the King!

I know how much you miss me;
I see the pain inside your heart.
But I’m 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 send you each a special gift
From my heavenly home above.
I send you each a memory
Of my undying love.

After all “love” is the 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,
For I can’t count the blessings
Or the love He has for you.

So have a Merry Christmas and
Wipe away that tear.
Remember I’m spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year!

  1. I would like to tell all of you God Bless you on this christmas year of our LORD 2013 AND MAY ALL THE BLESSINGS COME FOR ALL…………

    • Lyndall and family, I have not felt the severe pain of losing a child which has to be the most painful and difficult loss for a parent. losing our parents was difficult enough..but Will was way too young,so full of life and had so much to offer. I admire you all for bringing his life full circle to us all since his loss..when I just read this poem about first Christmas in Heaven I totally it and the tears keep flowing. Love you all

  2. Your music is such a comfort to me. I am 78 years old and have played the piano since I was six years old. The poem “My First Christmas In Heaven” was so moving. Our only child, a daughter, passed away in March so this is her first christmas in heaven. I got an E-mail form AllWorship last night and read it through my many tears. God bless your ministry.

  6. Our 24 yr. old son just died of a sudden heartache. Brad Towe. Brad was a strong Christian with a wonderful wife and 7 yr. old twins. Besides Brad’s work he was a Sunday School teacher to boys at our church, Hendersonville Church of Christ. He was also a basketball coach to his son’s team at our private Christian school where his children go along with it being where Brad went to school for 12 years. Please pray for Brad’s family, especially his wife and twins along with his 2 brothers.
    Thank you so very much. In Christian love, Dianne Towe

    • We will be praying for you this Christmas. This is our first Christmas without our little Sophia. She was my sister’s first and only child. Her father forgot to drop her off at day care on May 8th of 2014. She was left in the car all day. She was 13 months old and it completely devastated us. It’s not been easy…i have three children of my own that wonder where their cousin went and why. I hope your family finds peace and i wish you the best. Remembersophia.org

    • Dianne, I am praying for you and Brad’s family this morning. I can’t imagine the pain and loss you are all experiencing. May The Lord pour out His comfort and peace upon you. We also belong to church of Christ here in Oklahoma City.

    • I love you Dianne❤️ I know this was our first Christmas without Brad but we know we will see him again. Our twins had the best Christmas possible without Daddy. We have been reading a book at night called ‘God is Always Good’ given to us by Gil’s wife, Janet. I am so sorry that you have lost your son, my husband, loving brother & awesome Dad. We love you dearly ❤️

  14. A friend found this and sent it to me this morning. My husband passed away unexpectedly November 19th, 2014. I have been trying to celebrate his new life and rejoice for him daily, but my heart is still pierced with the agony of loss. His favorite music was Bing era Christmas music so I rewrote the words to I’ll be Home For Christmas to sing at his memorial. Wish I had one more chance to show you and tell you how much I love you.

And her only sibling her brother. He is in such pain. I want to beleive that is where she is and she is watching over us. But my pain is so great right now it is hard to believe in anything. She was the best ever and so good. Does not make sense

There is not a day that how’s by that I do not think of her and miss her terribly and she told me before she passed do not shed tears for me because she would be happy where she was going.

  36. my nephew found this poem on Christmas Eve. Little did we know, his mother, my sister ,would spend Christmas this year with Jesus. She passed away Christmas morning. It is so appropriate for our family and was as if it was sent to comfort all of our family.

  37. i PRINTED THIS OFF AND PUT IT ON MY DAUGHTERS GRAVE (37) IN SEPT 2004. HAVE LOST MOTHER, FATHER, DAUGHTER, GRAND DAUGHTER AND WIFE ALL WITHIN THE LAST 11 YEARS. THIS IS VERY COMFORTING.

  38. My beautiful sister Jennifer, who loved The Lord and couldn’t stop talking about Christ was a mother of four young boys and she passed away 12/20/14 in an untimely manner.
    Jennifer, you would light up the room when you walked in, no matter day or night. You touched so many peoples lives that you didn’t even know about….especially mine.
    I am truly sorry for the tough love that at the time I thought you needed. I hope and pray you understood and could forgive me, because I can’t forgive myself. The last two months of us not speaking has opened up a huge hole in my heart while your heart was the one that needed the love and understanding from me. Forgive me Jennifer and now that your perfect, ask Jesus to help me forgive myself. I Love you sis.

  42. Just lost my son *12/18/14 this is the most difficult thing ever in my life.Blake mono misses u more than words will ever say!!!!!!!! This is a beautiful poem!!!!!!

  43. Such a sweet message. What a wonderful descriptive of what it might be like to be with Jesus. Praise to the King!

  44. Our mother passed away 11years ago this coming 2015 Christmas morning.
    I know my sister will love this as much as I.

  45. Our son, Peter at 16 was killed as a result of a car accident 11/23/13. This will be his third Christmas in heaven. Reading all these messages is comforting I’m that I’m not alone; there are so many people who are feeling the same acute loss right now. Christmas is so much more meaningful now, knowing Peter wouldn’t be in heaven if Jesus hadn’t come to earth to be his Savior. Still, it’s lonely without him. It blows my mind to realize God willingly gave His Son to die, when it hurts so much to have a child die.

  46. Such a Lovely Poem for such a lovely person, I know you will enjoy this Christmas with our Lord and saveure Jesus Christ, I miss you so very much and now at this time of the year……….

  47. Wish I could see for myself what it is like and meet my family all that have passed. And being with someone I know who watches over me and the entire world.

  50. Thank you for that wonderful poem God always has a way of being there to comfort us and send us a message from our sweet angels in heaven.

  51. I will always Love you Larry I know it not my first Christmas it’s my third Christmas that you be gone I miss you as it was my first

  52. We lost our sweet baby, Pete, at 35 weeks on 11/23/15. This will be his first Christmas in Heaven. The line that struck a chord for me was “For I can’t count the blessings or the love He has for you.” We have felt the love of God in a way we’ve never before experienced and I am so thankful for the words you penned. You made me cry! What an encouragement to a mama whose heart is still very broken. Thank you.

  53. There is nothing harder than having to bury your child. I had to do that this year. My 25 year old son died suddenly of myocarditis Easter morning April 5 2015. It is the hardest thing any parent would have to do. My friend sent this to me and it is by far the most beautiful poem that I have read. I will read it everyday to help get me through my first Christmas without my beautiful son. I miss you so much Johnathan! I hope your first Christmas in heaven is a beautiful as this poem?

    • I, too, lost a child this year … just two weeks ago on Dec. 3, 2015. You are so right – it is extremely difficult; almost too hard to wrap your head around. My daughter, Cathy, was 51 and died of a massive heart attack. Eventually, the pain will ease and life will go on, but life can never be the same once you’ve lost a child. Stay strong, Michele … and know that one day we will be able to remember them thru smiles rather than tears.

  54. My World has Changed when I lost my Dad this year, Yet when I read something so Beautiful as this Poem I feel him right by my Side as he always was..Thank You Dad for being My Angel on Earth and now My Angel in Heaven. ..Your Michael. .

  55. This year is hard we lost our sweet sister Ninfa and brother Pete it’s not the same all our lives have changed thank you for the poem helps everyone we know we love you and miss you so love from the Family

  56. To my loving wife who just passed a few months ago. When I’m sad and miss her, I think of the freedom she is in and no pain, but pure Joy in heaven. Somehow I know she is celebrating with me in heaven. She and the angels rejoice……… Until we meet again, be sure you are missed and loved.

  57. We miss our daughter Bronwyn who went to be with the Lord on 15 August 2015. She loved Jesus so much & showed this in her walk through her life on earth. She left this legacy with every one especially her children. We can just imagine her joy when she saw Jesus standing beside the throne of God the Father to welcome her.

  58. My husband passed away November 5th 2015 the day before his 42nd birthday. He has left behind me and our two daughters (10 and 6) who miss him so much. Our two daughters and I don’t feel much like celebrating Christmas this year with out him. We talk about what he is doing up in heaven everyday and trying to be positive that he is having fun with Jesus now and watching over us everyday. Thank you for this my daughters really liked it.

  59. Oh my Darling . Sweetheart I miss you so much.?. I know God came after you to get you out of pain and so you could breathe again it’s only been ten months but it seems like an eternity since you held me and kissed me. I do thank God for the 30 wonderful years I was your wife and I thank Him that out last words were “I love you.? “and then in minutes you were gone. I know you are rejoicing and waiting for me , so just know I love you and one day I will be with you again throughout eternity.

  60. it is 1 year ago today (dec 20, 2014) that a wonderful, special lady went home to be with the lord. oh how i miss you, you are my special angel . rest in peace helen.

  63. What a gift to be able to write such a lovely poem and bring so much comfort to so many people around the world. This will be my daddy’s first Christmas in heaven after battling cancer and I’m comforted by knowing it is what God thought was best for him. I hope many others find peace with the help of your poem this Christmas

They are together again, celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary tonight looking down at all the beautiful Christmas lights.

    • I know you are correct. However as a mother trying to cope with the loss of a child year after year. The pleasant visual aids of the poem. Pull the pieces of my broken heart together for a moment. So that I can focus on the loved ones still here. And avert another bout of depression. Yes I’m am Christian. But are you a parent?

  75. My niece sent us this beautiful poem. We lost my mother on May 14th, 2015, from a car accident. My father was in it also and he survived. This poem captures exactly what my dear mother would say to her family. We are all very close and the Good Lord is helping us through it. I love and miss you so very much Mom. Until we meet again…..

  76. My, beautiful sister,is spending her 1st year in Heaven, I am sure she is with our family ,that has gone on. They must be looking down ,on us. Singing with the angles. Walking with Jesus, You are no longer in pain.from that old cancer. We,love you ,and miss you,But God knows best.

  77. This poem is so comforting. My father passed away in October this year. This is his first Christmas in heaven. Thank you for sharing the poem, your stories, and prayers.

  78. lost my dad March 24, 2016 and my husband of 23 years on August 2, 2016. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are both in the presence of God and that I will see them again one day. This Christmas is going to be extremely difficult, but I now that God will give me the strength and courage to get through whatever comes. This poem meant a lot to my husband and I when we lost his mother and father a few years ago. I know that it will be a comfort to me and my family this Christmas.

  79. My mum died on her and dad’s wedding anniversary 27Nov (2016) the minister said this poem at her funeral and it brought us comfort .

  85. We lost our Mother in 2013 to lung cancer, and Sept 16, 2016, we lost our baby sister to lung cancer. It has been really hard on my sister and I, we were all very close. I know she and Mother will be singing and keeping an eye on us, and saying don’t cry, I’ll be alright. We know they’re are in a better place than we are, but it don’t help the pain in our heart. Maybe time will help, and one day we’ll all be there together singing in that heavenly choir. Mother 82 yrs. Lisa 60yrs.

  90. This is beautiful I lost my sister on March 9 th of 2016 and my Husband march 29 th of 2016 we were married 60 years and this is there first Christmas in heaven and my first Christmas without them . But the joy I know my husband and sister are having in heaven with Jesus and all our family . Makes me happy for them but sad for me but I know Jesus knows best .but he would tell me not to be sad things will get better.

  91. This is for my sweet precious Nephew, Lyle Guthrie, who was murdered in 09-20-16. He was my everything like my own child. Christmas will NEVER BE THE SAME—-NEVER. Sweet Jesus, please hold him in your arms as we would do and let him know we will see Him soon and we love @ miss him

  92. This is so inspirational. We lost our 21 year old son July 2nd, 2016, the saddest day of my life. He was such a beautiful son and we were so close. I know he’s truly loved in heaven! They say it gets easier as time passes..but when? Every day that passes brings me one day closer to be with him. Love you Taylor Joe?

    Love you always. .Mom

  93. My cousin sent me this poem. My grandson Julian, 9 years old, was in a car accident on August 20, 2016. I say accident, however, when someone drives under the influence, it is no accident. Four days later, August 24, 2016, Julian was confirmed brain dead. It has been very hard to comprehend Julian will not be here for Christmas. This poem is absolutely right on. I know Julian is with our Lord. That is the only thing that gives me peace. Pray for Julian’s Dad, Mom and his sister and 2 brothers. God bless all who have suffered a loss of a child, no matter what the age.

  94. Iona Karber 10/29/1927 to 11/08/2015 You will forever be my rock and my foundation mom. It’s my consolation that you are now breathing easy and resting in peace in Heaven. I miss you and I love you. Merry Christmas in Heaven My Sweet Precious Mom!

  95. Through my tears, I am writing to thank you for this beautiful poem. It could have been written by my husband as he wrote poems each year for our Christmas cards. This is the first year our family will not be complete as I lost him in August to cancer. Everybody loved him on earth and I’m positive it is the same way in heaven. My faith says we’ll see each other some day, and I believe it is truly the way. Honey, I miss you so much and will love you forever.

  96. I needed to see this today. My sister passed over on June 2 this year. We were very close.
    In memory of:

    Beverly Dickerson Cofield
    May 30, 1937-June 2, 2016

  98. This is a beautiful poem!!!! I would like to dedicate it to the family, friends, and fans of “Elvis Tribute Artist” Keith Henderson of Chapel Hill, NC who passed away unexpectedly on November 22, 2016 as a result of suffering a massive heart attack!!! By sharing his gift with us Keith brought much joy anhappiness to so many!!! On October 15th, 2016 Keith performed at a Benefit for my husband who has stage 4 kidney cancer!!! Most performers usually charge for benefits but not Keith!!! He traveled 65 miles to perform and did not charge anything!! We were allowed to keep all the proceeds from the benefit and put it on my husband’s mounting medical expenses!!! I know he is enjoying singing with Elvis who was his idol since he was 3 years old but most of all I know he is enjoying singing to the King of Kings our Precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!! Keith’s birthday is Friday!!! Happy Birthday Keith and Merry Christmas my dear friend!!! Even though I know your family would prefer to have you here they can be comforted by knowing you will be celebrating both with Elvis and Jesus this year!!!

  99. Mom left us Dec 20 so this poetry was so supportive and beautiful.
    Blessings to all who posted here and beyond. May you find peace and healing from your pain and challenges.
    Namaste’

  102. Steven Laffoon May 20, 1993-August 17, 2016 First Christmas in Heaven
    Celebrating Jesus’ birthday ? in Heaven. Return to your rest my precious son. Always deeply loved. Never forgotten

    • Pastor Dwight Smith, March 26, 2016, 5:30 pm. So sadly missed, by the whole family. Such a gentle, kind man. A blessing to many. Loved dearly and missed by your wife, Jean.

  103. That is such a heart felt poem – lost my son 14 years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t miss and think of him.

  104. I love this & it gives me comfort. Jonathan left this earth on June 16, 2016. It was so sudden. He was killed in a work accident. He was the love of my life & will never be forgotten! He spent his first Christmas with Jesus this year & I am so thankful because there is no one I rather him be with! I know you are having a time of your life with your daddy, Papaw (aka Arley), Granny Calvert, Papaw & Granny Thomas. I bet you have rubbed your hands together a million times since you left me. I love you & can’t wait until we are together again in heaven!!

  105. My dad went to heaven on December 23rd, 2016 and this was read at his funeral on December 28 28th, 2016 and it meant a lot for me and my mother to hear and also made us cry ,because my dad had a lot of health problems and now he is with God not in pain or suffering, Thank You so much, The Pinkston Family

  106. Thank you Asta for such a lovely poem. I certainly miss my beloved parents Henrietta and Raymond. My lovely sisters Angela, Sonya ,and Mary so very much. It is comforting to know that they have Eternal life with Christ and nothing here to compare with that. Our memories sustain us until we see them again. My prayer today is for those who do not know that peace. You are loved by many who know how you feel.

  107. I have seen this poem many times and it always said at the end that it was written by a Teenage boy that was dying for his mother

  108. Such a beautiful poem. It reminded me of my grandma, who was a wonderful woman of God. I also told a friend at church to go on the site and read it, for she lost her dad just this morning.

  109. This is such a touching poem. Like others, I lost my dad in 2013, then my mom joined him in July 2017.
    Tears are flowing as I read this. I miss them so much.

  110. Went to the funeral of a young man, his name is Colin Rish and we was just 23 years old. the fact that he was just 23 was tough enough but when the Priest read this poem there was not a dry eye in the house. I will remember this funeral and this poem forever. It will touch me every time I read it.

  111. This Poem is So Beautiful, So Touching. We have to Remember Our Loved Ones That have passed are No Longer Suffering, but are Rejoicing in Heaven with Our Lord and Savior. ✝️🙏🏻💖

  112. For my beloved father….12 October 2017. A patriot, father, soldier, husband, friend…. Love you dad ….
