Christmas Dedications

I would like to take a few minutes and dedicate them to special people. Imagine yourself today, being away from all those you dearly love. In a distant land, probably scared to death. Away from your husband, your wife, your kids. My first dedication is to those people. To everyone who has ever been far from home, fighting for whats right and defending your home. Our courageous, our mostly fearless, our defenders, our protectors, our soldiers: past, present and future, the ones who gave all...and their families.


My next dedication goes out to some of our own, to each and every one of you who has lost someone dear to you this year. And a special dedication to our freebie hunter with a heart of gold, Selena Ledgerton Cooper and her family.

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 the tear
For I am 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.

I have no words to tell you,
the joy their voices bring,
For it is 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,
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.
was always most important
the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other,
my Father said to do.
I can't count the blessing or love
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

What a beautiful poem. While I didn't lose any one this year there have been other years and it made me remember those who were gone. Thanks to you and all your great freebies.

A beautiful post. As a mother of a former sailor and a former Marine, thank you for remembering all those who served so we may be free.
