MIssing My Grandma

My Grandma Young passed away a year ago today.  I miss her so much.  She was the sweetest lady I knew.  She never had anything bad to say about anybody.  She was always so sweet and calm.  She never got upset about anything.  I wish I could be more like her.  I used to work with the Cubbies in AWANA before I moved on to the Sparks and she never could remember what they were called and she would always ask me how my "tadpoles" were doing.  I always thought that was the cutest/funniest thing.  I have so many fond memories of her.  One of my dearest memories was I would always drink hot chocolate at her house when I was a little girl and then when I got older she would always have coffee ready when she knew I was coming.  I miss you so much Grandma.

My preacher read this poem a couple of Sunday's ago and although this will be my Grandma's second Christmas in Heaven, it still made me think of her and I wanted to share it with you:

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


  1. Your post makes me sad because this will be the first Christmas since my brother passed away.. Its difficult to think that he's gone, but as the article here say, he is spending Christmas with JC.

  3. Lori, she looked and sounded like such a sweet lady. Your description reminded me of my G'pa Troy. I used to drink hot chocolate at his house and it was there that I got my first taste of coffee (didn't like it). It's been 7 years and I still have dreams about him. One day we will see them again!!!

  4. She looks so precious and sweet. Loved the poem ~


Please leave me a message. I love hearing from you. Thanks!!
