My First Christmas in Heaven

Written by (Mom) Patricia L. Pettit-Staffeldt

My first Christmas in heaven,

When I leave this world behind,

Knowing it will be so wonderful,

A heavenly place I’ll find.



My Jesus will be there waiting,

With a mansion built just for me,

I will celebrate with my family,

My mother, sisters and brothers I’ll see.

There’ll be no tears or sadness,

There’ll be no weeping there,

We’ll be celebrating together

With shouts of “Praise the Lord,”

And dancing together everywhere.


But this Christmas, I am so grateful

For Jesus’ gift of love,

He was willing to give His all for us,

When He came down from His throne above.
