June moon with different aperture and shutter speeds down the Windy Gap, in Co Mayo, Ireland
I used one of my photographs and added this lovely poem to it. It’s very sad time of year when you’re thinking of loved ones that are gone. I don’t know if this poem helps or not, but I guess its nice to think that they are getting to celebrate Christmas somewhere.
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights like Heaven’s stars reflecting the snow.
The sight is so spectacular – please wipe away the tear,
For I’m spending Christmas with Jesus this year.
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 the joys their voices bring,
For it’s 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 for 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,
For I can’t count the blessing of 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.
