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.

Life is good

Life is good
Because it’s a flow.
It is like trees in a wood:
Never the same wherever we go.

Where there is no loss,
There is no gain.
Misfortunes remind about victory’s worth.
No exercises is starvation for brain.

A load is needed to make steel from muscles.
Without work a good gear rustles.
So, life is great forever!
Live and learn, be clever.

Try everything

When you are too afraid to go,
Try everything – all worthy things to grow.
When you are ready to quit,
Just try your wit.

In all good business keep smart and fair;
Before you make an important decision, remember to say a prayer.
Be simple and clever,
Be grateful ever.

Be clever

Love God with all your heart,
Always in prayer, thank for success.
If you have problems, use them to improve your “learn and move on” art –
By doing so you will achieve more, not less.

Be cheerful, with lightness in heart,
Know that night will not last forever.
The morning is soon to start!
In the meanwhile, be clever!

Life is too short

Life is too short
To be sorry about little things.
Ahead there is a reward
With wind blowing up your wings…

Night does not last forever,
Darkness is followed by light.
You can achieve, you are clever!
Look around, what a wonderful sight!

On Easter

20160424_154343
Easter! What a fine day!
No one’s gloom will stay.
Today no place for fear!

Life has won!
Today forget problems, have fun.
Thank Thee Father for all!
Thou saved us from a terrible fall.

Hallowed be Your Name!
Thou crown people with fame.
Easter! And life rejoices forever!
Thou make us happy and clever.

The first carol

Moon_over_Jasper_(2)

Did you know that the first carol ever
Was sung by angels and shepherds heard?
They left all to come, but brought their herd.
Magi came too: their decision was clever.

Let us set aside all cares of life –
Let’s come to Church to celebrate Christmas together!
Be your kind self, bring your friends, your children, and wife.
Set aside worries, today be lighter than a feather!

He will not suffer your foot to be moved

Anas-strepera-001

He will not suffer your foot to be moved,
He will help all your affairs to get improved.
God That keeps you will not slumber.
He multiplies your posterity without number.

The sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.
He sends success, peace, and might.
Glory to God now and forever!
Live your faith and be clever!

Життя – це великий дар

Життя – це великий дар,
Не варто про це забувати
І тільки Господь може ним наділяти;
Життя наповнює все від моря до хмар.

Але той, хто його має
Розпорядитися ним правильно мусить,
Найвищої мудрості життя вимагає
І розумний для початку язика закусить.

Не варто життя марнувати,
Його треба цінити, сміливіше крокувати.
Кожен сам все зважить, але час швидко спливає,
Укріпиться той у житті, хто надію на Бога покладає.
