Merry Christmas from Heaven!

caption on Lilly ornament:

I love you all dearly, now don't shed a tear, cause I'm spending my Christmas with Jesus this year

"Merry Christmas from Heaven" by John Wm. Mooney, Jr.

I still hear the songs,
I still see the lights
I still feel your love on cold wintery nights

I still share your hopes and all of your cares
I'll even remind you to please say your prayers

I just want to tell you, you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders above all the crowd

Keep trying each moment, to stay in His grace
I came here before you to help set your place

You don't have to be perfect all of the time
He forgives you the slip, if you continue the climb

To my family and friends, 
Please be thankful today
I'm still close beside you,
In a new special way

I love you all dearly,
Now don't shed a tear
Cause I'm spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year.

Sweet and sad, isn't it?  So now for some smiles:

Clive was hiding in Lilly's angel stocking this morning:

Merry Christmas from our elf and LillyBear:

Solomon says, "Merry Christmas in heaven, big sister Lilly, you couldn't be in a better place!"
