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.

Keep on going

Love God with all your heart!
And do not doubt in any part.
God loved you from the beginning,
He wants to see you winning!

Allow your faith to guide you,
Let it shine like crystal dew,
Take love in all your ways:
It will prolong your days.

Believe in God and go!
Let your hope grow,
Let your light shine!
You are a grape – He is the Vine.

Вище ніс

Johnson_lake_Banff_Alberta_Canada_(16442418910)
Не падай духом, друже
І не засмучуйся дуже.
Тримай вище ніс;
Ти вже набагато більше зніс.

Вір і сміливо крокуй уперед.
Хай інколи слова чи справи – не мед
Та у тебе ж серце, голова!
Роби добру справу і фільтруй нечемні слова.

Here we are

Lower_Kananaskis_Lake_(15852755977)
Here we are,
One more year has passed.
People are brothers, they are not far;
Bad luck will end – it won’t last.

What have we managed to do?
Did we cope?
We could have much better, it’s true.
Let’s try and next year will bring much success. I hope.

What one needs is being sage,
And we’ll arrange our time.
We’ll avoid everyday’s vanity cage.
Who believes in God will enjoy the real prime!

Believe

Johnsons_Lake_Alberta_Canada_Banff_national_park_(16490012738)
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!
