Naming Day©

Early Sunday Morning

When the sky was a fluffy baby blue

You could see clearly til the next day

No seats left to fill

Family and friends from near and far

Gathered closely to hear me named

It was my “Christening Day”

The day I was named before all who cared

All dressed in white

Alert as could be

Ready and willing

Understanding nothing

But accepting all that came

Bouncy and nervous

Laughing then crying

Prayers and blessings

Being passed about

To and from

All those that will guide me

My heart became open to all that would come ahead of me

My head fully anointed

Greeted by all

Then the celebration began

Glad to be among all who celebrate me

On the day that I was named me, again

Before the lord
