However hard, avoid despair.
Be sure, God is strong to repair.
However broken, believe
That when the time comes, you will receive.
Be simple and stand in hope.
Stock up with faith to cope.
Cherish love and abide in it.
Be strong, be friends with wit!

Sometimes I get so busy
That in prayer I am far away.
Lord, let me stay focused although it ain’t easy;
Let me believe, love, and pray.
Iaroslav Sunday 06.05.2018
Love God with all your heart
And bravely act!
Let your love be full and not in part,
Let not routine of everyday distract.
You have so many gifts,
Believe and act!
Do honestly your shifts,
But also use wit to promptly react!
Iaroslav June – July 2012
Smile and let the world smile too!
Smile, believe you can come through!
Rely on God and go.
While the sun shines – mow.
Smile, let the world smile too!
Smile, for you can win, it’s true.
Your prayers are heard.
Let us rely on our Father’s Word!

Iaroslav Sunday – Thursday 15-19.07.2012
Who are true believers?
They are the ones who stay when it is tough –
They are non-leavers –
They do not give up their friend in water that’s rough.
They start a task with hope
That they can win,
That God helps to cope;
He more than just exists, He loves, He helps overcome a sin.
When they see a person in a less fortunate range,
True believers offer some help:
Be it a cup of hot coffee or some change –
They do not harden their hearts when the poor yelp.
Iaroslav Monday 20.02.2017
Most mothers, I believe,
Qualify for sainthood truly.
They love, they sacrifice, they forgive;
They are not afraid of the unruliest bully.

Iaroslav Sunday 15.04.2018
When your hand can give, let it give.
When you can save your little brother, let him live.
Our time is short,
Neither tomorrow nor later it can be caught,
Do not say ‘tomorrow’, ‘later’ or ‘soon’.
Life is now, at this moment, slipping away like a balloon.
Live now, be free;
You are a blossoming tree!
Live and do good till you can,
No one will stop you or ban!
Your strength is inside.
Believe! Your kind deeds will abide…
Iaroslav Wednesday 17.12.2008
Each of us is valuable truly.
Each of us is important fully.
Avoid thinking otherwise;
If needs be, do awesomize.
We are bought with the Precious Price:
Christ gave Himself for you and me by device.
Knowing this, go, believe and act.
You are important, it’s a fact.
Iaroslav Saturday 28.04.2018
Both hardships and treasure will fade away,
But love is forever.
Watch what you do, what you say,
Decide for yourself what is clever.
There are things, deeds, and words that lead to death.
Faith, hope, love are the way of life.
Believe till the last breath.
To mow peace, do not plant or engage in strife.
Iaroslav Saturday 09.06.2007
When you’re ill,
It’s time to change,
To jump over the hill,
To switch to a better range.
Think what you can do.
You can improve the things,
Believe, it’s true.
You can readjust your strings.
So, it’s time;
Keep your heart pure and your vision – clear.
Sour is a lime,
And your deeds are dear.
Iaroslav Tuesday 05.05.2009
You should believe in such a way
That your face is smiling,
Because Christ cares for you at night and at day.
Start sharing your faith and smile, stop compiling.
Iaroslav Sunday 04.03.2018
Never settle for the path of least resistance.
A lot of things have been achieved through persistence.
Don’t be shy to use your family’s loving assistance.
Pray and believe at all times and God will make you go a long distance.
Iaroslav Sunday 18.02.2018
As much as you can, believe –
Let God tell you, “Your faith has saved you”.
When it seems impossible to receive,
Believe and work hard with a rolled up sleeve.
Iaroslav Sunday 29.10.2017
Have faith, have strength to smile.
You are kind, be brave.
If necessary, wait for a while;
Be not afraid of a ranging wave.
For your Creator you are equal.
Be careful though and be wise.
Believe to add a happy ending to this sequel.
Get over, smile, and work to awesomize!
Iaroslav Sunday 01.09.2013
Bells are singing a merry tune
Above the city and country, forest, and dune;
The Wonderful Day is coming here,
Fairy Christmas is already near.
Open your heart till it’s not too late:
All your dreams will come true,
Believe and the rain of grace will pour upon you.
You are free in God, so –
More confidence, be ready to mow.
Merry Christmas I wish!
Be blessed and enjoy your Christmas dish!

Whatever happens, life is going on.
Life… How much sense there is in the word!
Whatever life brings, it is worth moving on.
Look at a little bird…
So weak, fragile,
But it will live,
It will cover a mile,
It will, for sure, believe.
Life is a precious gift!
So much for others we can do.
No time for a drift.
Stop, just think, it’s true.
Iaroslav Wednesday 26.11.2008
It’s never too late,
Whatever you feel.
Go ahead, what for to wait?
Rust covers resting steel.
When everything seems to be lost,
Start from the beginning.
Still there is something which is beyond any cost…
The bell of life inside of you is ringing!
It’s never too late,
What else to state?
Believe, wisdom makes people fly!

Є люди, заради яких на світі варто жити –
Це – ті, які вміють ще любити.
Це – мама й діти,
Це – ті, які дрібницям вміють ще радіти.
Це – закохані щиро,
Яких життя як чисте миро.
Це – бідні, але щирі люди,
Які є, повір, усюди.
Багато бачив я у світі.
Та є у ньому те, заради чого варто жити:
Джерела, гори, дерева на весні у квіті.
Є заради кого варто ще любити,
Є ті, кого потрібно захистити.
Iaroslav Saturday 11.02.2012
When I pray, I have more time
To fulfill my tasks, to compose a rhyme.
It seems you lose minutes when you pray –
Believe, you gain hours and a day.

I feel good whatever they say.
I’m all right, what a wonderful day!
I believe I can fly, I have wings
And I’ll be a success; I’ll improve the things.
Iaroslav Sunday 30.05.2004
Believe in God and boldly step,
Keep straight your awesome back!
Your pocket will not lack,
Your house will not crack
Because you called your God your Help,
Because you worked with hope.
Your business will certainly thrive,
Your household will be as full as a bee hive!

You are strong, believe and go.
Your Father is with you!
Be brave, what people can do?
Be sage, the seed of truth will grow.
Iaroslav Saturday 09.01.2010
Life of faith is when you live with love and believe,
While you still have nothing, that you will receive.
Life of faith is when you act with hope
That God will give you a Hand however steep is the slope.
Be of faith in life,
However rough is the strife.
Be of good cheer – God loves you;
Be wise and sober for it is true.
Iaroslav Sunday 10.09.2017
When you are in doubt: believe
Be brave in order to achieve.
Be brave, you will receive.
Iaroslav January 2011
What does it mean to be a man?
You should be sure to understand,
It’s not easy, but, I believe, you can –
Be brave and wise: go, run, just never stand.
Is he strong? It’s not enough,
Even if he has never cried,
It only makes him tough.
A man will never show false pride.
Iaroslav Friday 25.07.2017
Think about good
And this will help.
It will change not only your mood,
But your life, you’ll never yelp.
Still don’t believe?
Try, of course, if you can…
Why would I deceive?
Let peaceful mind build your plan.
Iaroslav Saturday 07.01.2006
Rejoice in life and live!
Praise God and thankful be.
You have so much, believe.
Here is an example: an ant and a bee.
They work with an easy heart,
They are glad they are alive
And are happy about every body part.
Don’t worry, one day all flowers thrive.
You are more than that!
You are man!
God will make your road smooth and flat.
Rejoice, enjoy your fruit and bread with bran!
Iaroslav Sunday 25.07.2017
Have strength to dream you kind dreams –
Even after you come through flames and streams –
Let your dreams be living –
For that purpose – keep trying and believing!
Iaroslav Thursday 13.07.2017
Believe as long as possible, believe.
It is always easy to leave –
Keep on trying, being persistent in good:
Studying, resting, praying, saying, working under a hood.
Be ready to say “no” to bad things
Because they will encapsulate your neck and nose with rings.
Before you answer, reflect and pray:
Give it a thorough test before you say
Iaroslav Monday –Tuesday 09-10.02.2015
You’re not alone, believe,
God is always with you!
Cheer up, it’s too early to leave,
You are right, you’re strong, it’s true!
Find your niche and go on;
Persistent thou should be,
And you’ll still admire the dawn
Enjoying the daylight brighter than you thought it could be.
We are together,
You are not alone.
Even in a rainy weather
God’s love will bring us together making stronger than a stone.
Iaroslav Saturday 27.10.2007
Cheer up, my friend!
Even if now you are alone,
We may meet in the end.
But now, stand,
You are a winner,
There is time to be sad,
But believe in yourself,
Things are not very bad.
He who searches, will find.
God is with you!
Cheer up, my friend, you are so kind!
Iaroslav Monday 30.11.2009
Love God and Love your neighbour,
Believe and go with faith on all your ways.

May He prolong your days!

When you believe,
Miracles happen indeed.
However hard in work or other deed,
Somehow you will!

When you are studying for a degree,
Believe, you can achieve!
If you are tired of studying, plant a tree.
Continue rowing, till you receive!
Iaroslav Sunday 26.04.2015
Let them curse, but You, o Lord, bless.
With Your blessing I can achieve –
They want more, but get less –
God, teach us all to believe.

There is so much you can achieve!
I know, it’s hard to embrace,
But at any point believe,
Whether on earth or in space.

Shine your way –
Hard or light –
Have courage to say:
“You are so bright!”
But saying is insufficient –
Believe if you want all to be efficient.
Be of good cheer!
Share the things that are dear!

Do not give up!
That’s what you need.
You’re a winner –> that is your cup!
You love, you hope, you believe –
It’s a diamond that’s firm and not a broken reed!
Iaroslav Saturday 01.04.2006
What is my destination?
That’s the question I should ask.
Have I mistaken my vocation?
Will I be able to solve the task?
I just live my short life
Trying to hope for the best,
It’s like a strife
And I should work with zest.
All the above is right,
But sometimes I feel wrong,
Now I know my belief should be bright
And also hope and love; and they all life-long.

What you have, hold.
You are so rich indeed!
You are smart, you are bold,
Your health is more precious than gold.
So, be wise to save it and maintain.
No one knows what will happen then.
Under the sun or pouring rain,
Be sage to keep what is main.
Believe, these words are true.
You will need much strength –
Till the sky above is blue –
To do kind things, to break through!
Iaroslav Sunday – Monday 11-12.01.2009
You went bust
And tried to drown the misfortune in whisky.
Your mind dimmed and liver suffered rust.
Became better? No! More risky!
Have you lost your hand
Like the guy?
Or your eyesight? So tell me why,
Why can’t you see the rich land?
Even those poor guys
Do not look back closing their eyes.
A deaf man will see the rise,
A blind man will hear it ’cause he tries.
Enough, stand up, just start.
Think about your heart
Which you can’t deceive.
You’ve got to believe.
Iaroslav Saturday 04.02.2006
God will make a way.
Believe as much as you can!
For the things you need – pray.
To give best things to you is His plan.

Whatever happens, keep on believing.
Think, how much you can indeed,
You’re as vigorous as a living seed.
Problems are nothing more than deceiving.
Whatever happens, believe.
Everything will be all right.
Be slow to quit, to leave,
You’ll enjoy the sight.
Whatever happens, believe –
It’s never too late to improve, to retrieve.
A race is won by racing,
A problem is solved by facing.
Iaroslav Sunday 24.09.2006
How smart you are!
Believe, do not hesitate,
You’ll be like a shining star,
You will enjoy success sooner or late!
With sun light your street will be lit,
He who has doubts is wrong.
Just do not cease doing your bit,
Indeed, you are strong!
Iaroslav Sunday 23.12.2007
They have surrounded and encircled me,
But I have overcome them by the Name of the Lord completely.
They were going to advance, but had to flee.
God’s work is revealed to those who believe not abstractly, but concretely.
Lord, may Your slave be faithful,
Let Your slave be grateful.
Let Your slave speak of Your magnificent deeds.
Let Your might help your slaves in their needs.

Just keep faith and continue going.
It’s never too late to retrieve.

Easter is knocking at doors.
What a wonderful day!
We can open hearts’ stores!
It’s a day of love, of the hopeful ray!
Death will always lose.
It will never own.
Let a winning hymn make a cruise!
How high our song has flown!
Our prayers are heard!
You are not alone.
God takes care even of a bird!
Smile! Believe, you won’t knock against a stone.

Якось два мудреці розмовляли…
Один іншого мимохідь спитав
Пояснити загадку, відповідь до якої сам не знав.
Довго думали до усього рівняли:
Дивно, не заздрить, не радіє з неправди,
Не поводиться нечемно, не величається,
Не шукає тільки свого, не надимається,
До гніву не рветься, терпить завжди,
Милосердствує, сподівається всього,
Правдою тішиться, вірить у все,
Не думає лихого, скорботи знесе.
Весь день мудреці сперечалися з цього,
Не відповівши, за інше заговорили знов.
Років восьми неподалік хлопець стояв,
За розмовою довго спостерігав
І наче сам до себе промовив: “Любов”.

Believe in order to win!
Let your success be perfected.
Let your everyday life be affected!
Believe, be courageous and win.
Let God grant you faith.
Let your wisdom grow,
Let your love be in strength,
Let your life peacefully flow.
Iaroslav Sunday 17.07.2011
How important it is to be sure!
No doubt on that score.
You need not hesitate,
Believe, till it’s not too late.
You may try yourself anyway.
What else can I say?
I’ve tried, now I know:
So much time I felt low…
But you will enjoy success.
It’s up to you: either more or less.
Be strong and keep within law,
How important it is to be sure!
Iaroslav Sunday 09.12.2007
Believe, with God’s help you can win.
Have faith, keep on going.
Whether you are plump or thin,
Continue building, not destroying!

A good way to share the Christmas Spirit is to sing together,
To make people’s mood lighter than a feather!
So, come, join the song,
Don’t be afraid to be wrong.
Let’s sing about His glory and love!
Let’s ask for a peace dove
For all the people, near and far!
Let’s wait and watch the first star.
It’s Christmas, do sing and believe!
You will receive
The things you need.
The reward is great for every kind deed.
God loves you very much;
The extent of this love is such
That He gave His Only-begotten Son for you.
He wants you to be happy and to break through.
Iaroslav Sunday 20.12.2015
I have been running from believing,
Trying to find happiness elsewhere
Losing things instead of receiving
And found happiness nowhere.
The more I live, the more I see –
There is one way:
Up and it is free;
To choose love in all situations, to pray.

Have you ever felt really bad
When you’re all fingers and thumbs and look so sad?
I think you have, perhaps not once.
Perhaps you even asked God to help you not to lose your chance.
It’s very good when you believe;
This opens the door to wisdom which you receive.
Never forget to thank for what you’ve got.
Look at paupers, think carefully – you have a lot.
Have you ever had bright moments in life
When the sky is clear and you want to fife?..
Be thankful to score your goal!
Ask God to show the way and to save your soul.
Iaroslav Monday 11.07.2005
I hope you’ll never lose the sense of wonder –
After a lot of rain and thunder –
You will remember to hope
And believe that with God’s help, somehow you’ll cope.
I hope you will sing –
Without being afraid of what kind of thing
People will think or say –
Because you are like a sun ray.
I hope you will dance –
Without being afraid of giving a chance
Of saying that you are awkward or old –
Let the joyful child in you always live, let your heart never become stone-cold.
Iaroslav Thursday 16.07.2015
It is easy to believe when all is smooth,
But try to be consistent whatsoever:
No matter who would like you to lose,
God is with you forever.
Whatever happens, believe.
Let your heart follow your dream.
Whatever news you receive,
Let your soul faithfully gleam!
Iaroslav Saturday 05.02.2011
Believe and follow your dream –
You have the aim to achieve.
However hard it will seem,
Do not get discouraged; believe!

A kind smile can heal,
More than that: it cures for sure.
People will smile back whatever they feel.
It’s true in space, underground, at sea, and ashore.
Good mood passes over to people around.
Even if they are unhappy, suppressed,
They hear the jolly sound
And bad mood disappears without rest.
So, try to smile at your neighbour.
Believe! You need no hesitation,
And he will help you back with your labour.
Language of good needs no translation!
Iaroslav Sunday 18.11.2007
On a partagé tout,
Mais on ne manque rien.

Et maintenant on doit retenir l’amour et la fois
Dans ce monde fou.
