Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Arleta. Married 45 years, 4 children, 12 grand-children; we became great-grandparents in 2010, with three more in 2013-2014 (and I'm so young!). Life is exciting to say the least.

We love the Lord Jesus, believe in salvation by grace, and in the power of prayer. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." –Romans 10:13

Christmas in Heaven!
~ by Wanda Bencke © Copyright 1999

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 that 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 of 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
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place
Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell you of your love
So, then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing
For I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

"This poem 'Christmas In Heaven' written by Wanda Bencke has appeared on the internet in different forms. The above poem is the original. Here is what the author has to say about her original poem. The story behind the poem... Lysandra Kay Bencke was was my thirteen year old handicapped daughter. On Christmas day 1997, Lysandra had a seizure and was in a coma for five days before she died. During those five days, I wrote the poem 'Christmas In Heaven'. I sent it out in belated Christmas cards to friends and relatives that year. They also sent it on to other friends and relatives, thus, how the poem and the story behind it has been changed. I wanted people to know the story about 'Ben' is not true." Dot McEntire
