From Heaven

I've wondered so often about what my late husband can see from Heaven.  I've wondered if he knows my struggles, and sees my victories.  Last week, during a discussion with my pastor, he shared  that biblically our loved ones can see us from heaven.  This brought such great comfort to me.  I've been struggling and I'm sure he sees it.  Today I found this poem, and it was such a blessing to me.  Especially because of my struggles and my striving for perfection and falling so short.  I really believe God wanted me to read this.  He wants me to hear these words as if Jonathan was speaking them directly to me.  May this poem bless you and bring you comfort this Christmas.

I still hear the songs
I still see the lights
I still feel your love
On cold winter 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 come here before you
to help set your place

You dont have to be
perfect all the time
He forgives you the slip
if you continue to 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

-John Mooney, 1989
