2022 Blessing

There have been days of grief, when the memories of those gone haunt me. And I have teary days of aloneness ... but the Lord has been close through this year of 2022, and his love has been a blessing. He gives me strength and courage, filling my soul with tranquility and serenity. And he helps me accept my past ... so, I am able to put it within his waiting strong arms, and his love has been a blessing. The Lord is my rock and anchor, holding my hand when I whisper, please help. He carries me when I am broken ... see my tears Lord, oh, these are my tears of thanks, and his love has been a blessing. With his words I overcome pain, and I am safe in the shelter of his wings. The wicked and evil he rejects ... the Lord holds up his shield to protect me from harm, and his love has been a blessing. The Lord renews my hope, and I am able to rise up like an eagle. I will not fail in 2022 ... for I praise him each day and 'till my last earthly breath, and his love has been a blessing. __________________________ November 13, 2022 Poetry/Free Verse/2022 Blessing Copyright Protected, ID 11-1502-090-13 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Premiere contest, Best Blessing sponsor, Regina McIntosh, Judged 11/30/2022 Second Place

Genuine sentiments flowing from a heart full of faith in God's providence. When dear ones depart from us and a void is left in life, He fills that void with His love and blessings. Congratulations on your win, Constance.

As many PS poets know by now, I am not a great fan of religious poetry, but, Constance, I must say this poem really shines through with your faith, hope, and charity! Good luck in the contest. I believe Gina will love this!
