Christmas In Heaven...

I have so many questions and so few answers as to what my baby girl is doing on her First Heaven. Many times it seems so wrong that she isn't here with our family where her stocking is hung on the mantel and her nursery is celebrating the season. This world is fallen even as glorious as it seems this time of the year. My focus stays on Heaven...

Close your eyes and allow this song to give you a glimpse...

Oh Rebecca what a beautiful song. As I listened tears flowed down my face and made my heart ache for our little girls. Thanks for sharing this song with me and others. I think I am going to add this to Lindsay blog as well. I want everyone to hear this song. May God hold you in his arms the next few days as you and I face this Christmas without our girls.

Beautiful. Yes you can't help but wonder what Christmas is like in Heaven while hearing that song. I imagine it is quite spectacular. Annabelle is in a GRAND place.

My First Christmas In Heaven

I am having my first Christmas in Heaven
A glorious, wonderful day!
I am standing with saints of all ages,
Who found Christ, the truth and the way

I am singing with the heavenly choir
I- who so loved to sing!
And, oh what celestial music
We bring to our Savior and King

I am singing the glad song of redemption,
How Jesus to Bethlehem came,
And why they called His name Jesus,
That all may be saved through His Name!

Oh, loved one, I wish you could be here!
No Christmas on earth can compare,
With all of the rapture in glory,
I witness in Heaven so fair!

You know how I always loved Christmas,
It seemed such a wonderful day,
With all of my loved ones around me,
We were so happy in every way.

Yes, now I can see why I loved it,
And, oh what a joy it will be,
When all of my loved ones are with me,
To share all the glories I see!

So, dear ones on earth, I send greetings,
Look up! Til dawning appears,
And, oh what a Christmas awaits us,
Beyond all our partings and tears!

That was such a beautiful song that must give you some sense of peace just thinking about what Annabelle could be experiencing her first Christmas! I can only imagine how spectacular Christmas must be in heaven!
I have been thinking about you and praying for you so very often this month!
I love you!

your little girl is beautiful and I'm so sorry for your loss. You're in my thoughts and prayers this holiday season. I know your little angle is in heaven smiling, looking down on you and her daddy.

It is a beautiful song. I just "caught" up on all your posts. I have been running around to and from dr apts and the normal hustle and bustle. Something in me told me to check your blog today and I am so glad that I did. Thank you for sharing your journey and your faith with us all. It helps so many people in so many ways. I will be constantly thinking of all of you. Merry Christmas!

I have thought of you all through the day today and my focus too, was on Heaven. I love you my friend and I hope that Wyatt helped his Mommy and Daddy through today.
Merry Christmas!
Love, Suzie

Still thinking of you and your precious Annabelle.

I have written and re-written several lines and nothing sounds right. The truth is...I feel so bad for you and the fact that you have to face this Christmas without your sweet baby girl. You are amazing and doing a wonderful job keeping Annabelle's memory alive. I hope you had a good Christmas. Annabelle must be very proud of her mommy.
