“Come To Me” My Journey to Confirmation.
A thunderous roar, a storm rushing
seized my soul and I was there.
Ethereal in light,
fierce Love flooding my spirit.
Blinding Love, a pure white sphere of fire.
“Come To Me” Love called from the flame
and grasped for my heart.
Frightened, I turned away,
rushing back, downward, into myself,
into paralyzing emptiness, darkness without.
And in that hollowness time passed and I stumbled. Please, I prayed, come back to me.
I cautiously began to seek,
following breadcrumbs along His path
to this sacred Parish home.
Broken, I was enfolded in many arms,
gently guided by many hearts.
And now, mended and reconciled
I climb back in faith
joyfully awaiting this precious moment —
Love’s sweet Confirmation.
Imperfectly I pray,
come back to me.
I will not turn away from your flame,
your Holy Spirit.
Finally, freely, lovingly, I turn to Thee.
