New commandment

We have received a new commandment truly:
“Love each other”.
This is how they will know that we are Christians fully:
When we treat people as a sister and a brother.

Love your neighbour as you love yourself

Have you ever thought
That loving others
As we love ourselves, which should be a lot,
Is being accepting of your sisters and brothers?

It is being forgiving and patient in all;
Loving God, including in His creation;
Being happy, faithful, hopeful, and tall
Despite shortcomings and an awkward business presentation?

Love God and love your neighbour,
Love yourself in studies, rest, and labour.
Smile often whenever you can.
Melting ice inside and keeping positive is the plan!

Як сумно часом буває

Як сумно часом буває,
Чому успіх чужий комусь заважає?
Чи ми, люди, брати?
Чи не тому ми тут, щоб один одному допомогти?

Та дехто забуває,
Через дрібне головне зневажає.
Люди різні та є добро,
Назавжди переможе Воно.

Хай жорстокий розуміє,
Любові тепло синів-дочок зігріє.
Лагідні яскраво засяють.
Терпінням й добром вони перемагають.

Sincere smile

dscn9457

Sincere smile, how much it means!
It is like bread and oil, beans
For a hungry soul.
For a fan it is a goal.

Just smile and improve the world around.
The birds are singing, what a sound!
The past is past, we live in the present.
Your smiling face is so pleasant!

Your smile is a cure for others,
It does support your brothers.
Be yourself, it is worthwhile.
How much it means, sincere smile!

The only way to multiply joy

Clark's_Nutcracker_-_Nucifraga_columbiana

The only way to multiply joy
Is to share it with others;
To do a kind deed
And to make happy your sisters and brothers.

How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to be together in unity

How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to be together in unity,
How much strength it adds to the whole community.
Things get done better,
Opportunities are open faster.

When a brother relies on his brother,
They both will go farther;
Their business will succeed
When with mutual love they proceed.
