Never stop improving

Never stop improving,
No need in proving.
Just build upon good stuff;
Learn from failures and that’s enough.

Do all things with love sincere

Do all things with love sincere:
You will go far, you won’t go near;
You will improve the world around you;
Your light will shine to others, true.

Твори добро

Твори добро,
Велике і маленьке.
Твори добро,
Хоч каже хтось “слабеньке”.

Нехай у цьому
Будеш щира/щирий.
Зростай, укріплюйся у ньому,
Хоч сумніваються усі, ти віруй!

Твори добро!
Не будь переможений злом,
Але перемагай зло добром.
Твори добро!

Нехай лице умию
І серце з радістю відкрию;
Нехай по милості Твоїй дістану
Та на молитву подячну стану!

Ways to take worry under control

It is nearly impossible to avoid worry,
But it is possible to take it under control;
To prevent health issues and to deserve glory.
Worry is a dangerous beast, it’s not a doll.

The way number one is to pray,
In the morning and in the eve,
Without haste and without delay;
It doesn’t have to be long, but make sure you believe.

Another way is faith at all times.
God loves you, right?
Act accordingly even when you get limes;
Remember about the Kingdom and focus on light.

Control your hunger to achieve

Control your hunger to achieve
Your goals such as catching a bus,
A good mark to receive,
To avoid any extra fuss.

I do not say forget food
Because this stuff is good,
Only be mindful of extras, sizes and what is on the plate
And do not worry if your lunch is five minutes late.

Simple acts of kindness

Today I was running late.
The bus driver noticed and waited.
This was a simple act of kindness, what else to state?
I am going to phone his organisation – his deed will be highly rated.

My God is my Saviour

I thought that I had lost,
But You changed my losses
Into victories of precious cost.
And my foot safely crosses

On an invisible bridge
That only You have spread,
On a ridge…
In peace, Your servant eats his bread!

Thank You, Father!
