BLESSINGS

For uncounted generations
priest told congregation

Dominus vobiscum
God be with you

They replied

Ed cum spiritu tuo
And also with you

Marvelous blessings to share
Grant one another

What a change
if instead

We blessed
May you know that God is with you

Responded with
And may you know as well

The difference between
Uncertainty
Fear
Loneliness
Shame
Anxiety
Longing

and

Joy
Companionship
Serenity
Peace
Love
Gratitude

How to let people know
God lives
tucked warmly behind
each person’s heart

Waiting to be found
