I Can Carry Pain

Posted by Christina Morley |

I can carry pain
And still wear a smile
The promise I’ll gain
May take a while

The road may be long
And my heart weary
But I’ll still have a song
My load He’ll carry

God knows my heart
The sacrifices I’ve made
He’ll do His part
His life He gave

Deep cries out to deep
It’s not in vain
My heart He’ll keep
He’ll carry my pain

His joy is mine
His life fulfilling
I’ll be fine
His peace indwelling

Passion for Life

Posted by Christina Morley |

When I was a child, I thought like one
But now my childish days are done
Though I’ve grown up, I still like fun
As wife and mother, but not under the thumb
My passion for life continues at a run
There’s lots of adventure under the sun
And I don’t want to miss any one
As I share little joys with everyone
Who said my childish days are done?
Childish yes, but carefree – none!
