Here we are

Lower_Kananaskis_Lake_(15852755977)i
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!

Love God with all your thought

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!

Smile and let the world smile too!

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!

True believers

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.

Mothers

Most mothers, I believe,
Qualify for sainthood truly.
They love, they sacrifice, they forgive;
They are not afraid of the unruliest bully.
