Have a heart and intelligence hold

Have a heart and intelligence hold;
Be loving, but also be smart.
Remember your Heavenly Father, be bold.
To win – do your part.

Power, love, wisdom

Peyto_Lake_-_Banff_National_Park_2
Christians should act
Boldly in all good things
Because God did not give us the spirit of timidity, in fact,
He gave us the spirit of power, love, wisdom and the positivity it brings.

Rely on God and boldly step ahead

Western_Brook_Pond
Rely on God and boldly step ahead.
Let Him direct your way, let Him anoint your head;
Let Him remove your sorrow and let Him give you joy instead.
He is the One Who redeemed you, protected and fed.

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!

By God’s Grace

I am more educated than my instructors
Because I reflect on God’s ways.
I am more vigilant than orchestra conductors
Because I listen to God since the youth of my days.

He made me wiser than the old
Because I follow His commandments day and night.
He makes me whole and bold
Because I glorify Him with all my heart, knowledge, and might.

Don’t be afraid of saying good, kind words

Moraine_Lake_Half_Frozen
Don’t be afraid of speaking about your feelings in life;
Don’t be afraid of saying good, kind words however harsh is the daily strife.
Be bold to say the words “I love you!”,
And they will follow you as if attached with super glue.

Believe in God and boldly step

Mount_Fay_Banff_2009
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!

Live as if tomorrow never comes

SONY DSC
We tend to live
As if we are here forever.
We keep things forgetting to give;
We tend to be thrifty rather than clever.

But what if tomorrow never comes?
What if God calls us today?
Do we realize to what our life sums?
Therefore, act boldly, remember to love, and pray.

За Причастя можливість

За Причастя можливість
Приношу Тобі, Боже, подяку;
За силу, сміливість
І підтримку усяку.

Милість Твоя – безкінечна
Бо не дивлячись на лиця рятуєш.
Сила Твоя – незрівнянна, мудрість – беззаперечна
І розкаяного всякого Ти нагодуєш.

Люблячий, завжди будь з нами.
Знаю, недостойний я просити,
Але крім Тебе нікого іншого не знали.
Один Господь! Тільки Ти можеш нас заступити.

You’re at the fire-place

populus_tremuloides_foliage
You’re at the fire-place
And do not feel cold,
And you’ve got some stores just in case,
But don’t be bold.

Everything is in God’s power.
Do you remember paupers near your house?
They aren’t afraid of showers,
They believe though they’ve got as much as a mouse.

All you have is like a passing dream;
Even some paupers used to be rich.
Life is faster than a mountain stream –
While you can, help those who can’t do a hitch.

What you have, hold

dscn9511

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!

Best investment

Mount_Robson_Provicial_Park
First best investment is education,
It does not matter where you were born, to what nation.
Money gets cheaper each day –
Education will grow in price without delay.

Second best investment is your wife.
When it gets tough in life,
She will sell her jewellery to support the family: your children and you.
Whatever the situation is, good or bad, keep your love true.

Third best investment is children indeed.
When the time comes, invest in their education, word, and deed.
When you grow old,
They will support you, among your neighbours you will be bold.
