Rejoice despite all!

Rejoice despite all!
Have faith that you will overcome the wall;
That in front of you, there is an open space.
Pray, believe and wash your beautiful face.

L’amour

L’amour est patient,
Il est plein de bonté.
Ce secret est ouvert aux enfants.
Même le soleil a besoin d’amour pour monter.

L’amour n’est point envieux;
L’amour ne se vante point.
Qui peut dire mieux?
C’est vrai et beau au moins.

L’amour ne s’enfle point d’orgueil,
Il ne fait rien de malhonnête.
L’amour est frai et pur comme une feuille
Et aussi doux comme une sonnette.

Il ne cherche point son intérêt,
Il ne s’irrite point.
Regarde, il faut être prêt,
L’amour est là, ici, pas loin.

Il ne soupçon point le mal,
Il ne se réjouit point de l’injustice…
Écoute, c’est pas une chose banale.
Les mots sont divers et l’idée est lisse.

…mais il se réjouit de la vérité;
Il excuse tout, il croit tout.
L’amour fait le cœur battre et rêver.
Il espère tout, il supporte tout.

L’amour ne périt jamais.

*See the Bible: 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13.

Affordable asset

Banff_National_Park._Canada._(12092150206)
Is a must to win a deal;
Is an aid to succeed;
An asset to get a project done without any appeal;
A spice to flavour a meal;

A gulp of water to help cover a mile;
A great support in need;
A beautification to any style –
This simply is a sincere smile.

Alone

Lake_Moraine_(9309191259)
Never be alone
Unless you need to.
God created woman from man’s bone
And bode her to help him break through.

Saint Paul instructs to love your wife
As Christ loved the Church – in the truth, forgiveness, care.
Beautify with love and good deeds your life;
Discover, awesomize, dare.

Souris, ton sourire est si beau!

Johnsons_Lake_Alberta_Canada_Banff_national_park_(16055273314)
Souris, ton sourire est si beau!
Souris et le monde entier te sourira.
Sois sûr, le soleil apparaîtra de nouveau,
Le jour manqué bientôt finira.

Il ne faut pas désespérer ou être triste,
La nuit portera conseil.
Tout passera, sois comme un touriste –
Aujourd’hui une mauvaise maison, demain une autre, sans doute, sera une merveille!

Never knowing what is ahead

DSCN9552
Never knowing what is ahead,
Where you’ll lose, where you’ll find.
Never stubborn, always wiser instead
Keeping good things on your mind.

What you’ve got, hold,
Even more, multiply!
Cultivate good in yourself being bold.
Enable your heart and brain to amplify.

And me, I am with you.
How much we can save!
How beautiful are flowers in dew!
It is time to be brave!

Pray on

The darkest hour
Is before the dawn.
A bud comes before a flower;
Mud grows a beautiful lawn…

Your hope is your light,
Keep it in sight.
Your anchor is faith, true.
Love is your cleansing bath, keep it if you want to break through.

Whatever happens, stick together

Whatever happens, stick together,
In a bad storm and in good weather,
To overcome all misfortunes;
You will feel like a feather.

Supposing, you fall – you’ll get a support,
Each of you will stand like a fort!
He, who’ll try to defeat you, will lose.
You’ll be like a glorious caravel which enters a port.

Whatever you plan, you will do
‘Cause on God your hopes will be fixed by both of you.
Love is your shield,
You are protected from burning arrows, it’s true.

Beauty decays, love never ends.
Rudeness destroys, a kind word mends.
Stick together, good friends!

La vie chante une chanson

La vie chante une chanson,
Ecoute et tu entendras;
A chacun sa façon.
Le bon bientôt viendra.

Quoi qu’on dise, la vie est belle,
De temps en temps dure,
Pleine de sucre, pleine de sel,
Mais bonne en tant que telle!

Tu vas réussir, je te dis
Parce que le soleil est si beau,
Le ciel ne sera pas toujours gris.
Tu vas réussir, j’enlèverai mon chapeau.
