Happy Birthday Jessica

when this poem "Christmas in Heaven" was posted on Love2Scrap i knew i had to use it to create a special tribute layout to remember our precious Jessica Joy on what would have been her 16th birthday, today! Dec. 22 2006. December 22, 1990 was a special Christmas, having our first child, and although she was in the hospital with serious health issues we were thankful for her none the less. So Happy 16th Birthday my sweet Jess, and Merry Christmas in Heaven.


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 the tear
for I am spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs
the people hold so dear
but the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.

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.
For I can't count the blessings or love
He has for each of you.

So have a Merry Christmas and
wipe away that tear,
Remember, I'm spending Christmas with
Jesus Christ this year."
