I'm Proud To Be A Christian Woman


I try to be a noblewoman.
I reach out to those in need.
I believe in planting a seed.
I give to displaced children.
I open my home to abused and neglected children.
I believe as a Christian woman it's our responsibility to be a mother to the motherless.
I believe as a Christian woman it's our responsibility to clothe the penniless.
I believe as a Christian woman it's our responsibility to offer hope for tomorrow.
These children have seen too much sorrow.
I believe as a Christian woman it's our responsibility to teach our children Biblical principles.
I believe as a Christian woman that you can still love your children, with correct discipline.
I believe as a Christian woman if children are not disciplined, they will live a life of trouble.
Repeating the sins of yesterday, we can make a difference if we step up today.
And be Jesus in the eyes' of a child.
We can possibly prevent a child from turning out wild.
Returning back to their past of drugs, alcohol, abuse and neglect.
We can show them unconditional love without reject.
We can show hurting children a positive reflection.
Of God's love living in a loving Kingdom.
Of unconditional love!

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
