I am writing to tell you of the wonderful things taking place here in preparation for Jesus’ birthday. Yes, we celebrate Christmas here, too. If Jesus had not been born on earth, none of us would be here in Heaven. Therefore we have great reason to celebrate!
The golden streets are lined with white, spiring trees bejeweled with the purest diamonds, emeralds, and rubies. And the mansions are vibrant with heavenly lights. I peeked into the Grand Auditorium a few minutes ago. The pipe organ sounds like the pealing of hundreds of church bells on Sunday morning. The entire sanctuary is decorated for the occasion. There are no pews like in earthly churches. We don’t need them because when we enter it is natural to fall on our knees and sing praises to Jesus.
The angelic choir was practicing the most beautiful Christmas hymns. The choir loft holds ten thousand or so angels all dressed in robes of white and gold. When I hear them join together, their angelic voices in perfect harmony, I realize what it means to me that Jesus did not call those ten thousand angels to carry Him from the cross.
I love seeing the preparations that are going into this celebration. I thrill at the thought of spending Jesus’ birthday with Him! I caught a glimpse of His birthday list. As always, He is giving to everyone else. You should see the blessings He has in store for you this coming year. If only you could see how much He loves you, you would spend Christmas day on your knees praising Him too.
Well, dear family, I must close. I hope you will no longer grieve for me as you can see how happy I am. Please, do not be despondent. It will not be many years before we are reunited and celebrating Christmas together in the presence of the Lord.
I love you each dearly. Keep your hearts right and your eyes on Jesus, for believe me, great will be your reward!
