Confirmation Day


I ask the questions, give the answers
Listen as they repeat the answers
Back to me, to the congregation,
To God, to all of creation, to angels and archangels
And the whole company of heaven
"I will, and I ask God to help and guide me."
Youthful voices making eternal promises
Setting their intention, deeply meant, to be sure-
And I know the testing that will surely come
The rocks and brambles on the path
Which will tangle and grasp, trip and challenge
Not an easy road they have chosen, I know,
And I smile at their youthful determination
And breathe a blessing from my heart
