A new day is a new life

A new day is a new life,
New beginning, new chance
For you, your worker, student, husband or wife,
Therefore, smile and join the dance!

Smile to brighten the day

Smile helps build a house,
Work and study each day;
Whether you wear a khaki uniform or a teacher’s blouse,
Use it to brighten your day.

In such a way

Live in such a way
That nothing overshadows your day
Because you skip good words to say,
Good deeds to do, a long-awaited visit to pay.

You work a lot, but remember to rest;
No need to overwork, just do your best.
In studies, prepare timely for your test.
Say prayers and with love build your nest.

Rejoice when it is day and at night!

Rejoice when it is day and at night!
Rejoice in all God’s works!
Rejoice for you live and have sight!
Accept with gratitude drops of water and food loaded forks.

God gives all

God gives all:
Happiness and health,
With or without wealth;
He also hears when you call.

Be brave, He is with you.
Do good and live.
The time is short, the days are few.
Be brave, kind and wise; when you can, give.

Love story

You were several years younger
And I was so naive.
We met at the fishmonger’s,
You were about to leave.

I asked how the selection was that day.
You smiled and said what you liked.
You explained the best cooking way,
It was trout or pike.

You gave me your email
In case I forgot how.
Since then we often met; we often pray like in a fairy tale,
We’ve been married for twelve years now.

A scientific perspective

Have you ever thought
How man is made:
How countless cells are built together from naught;
How carefully the organs are laid?

Was it possible that cells themselves agreed
That they would stick together to cope with any need?
Or did the brain existed by itself and one day
It said to the stomach, “Hey,
Let’s work together, bud!”
And they found the feet to step over any mud?

No, this was not possible at all
As cells have no ability
To communicate enough or call;
And organs are a subject to a high fragility.

So, did this happen by chance?
Shall we adopt an unscientific stance?
This complexity is so immense
That even the brightest of us all together have nothing to say in their defense.

It only makes perfect sense
When we think of the Creator Who loves, cares and directs to enhance.

Smile for all occasions

In every business – smile:
At work, in studies, at home;
Even when you are pushing a shopping cart through an aisle;
When yo are in a trench or under a dome.

Doing so will brighten your way,
And it will help achieve your goal.
Therefore, practise smile at night and during the day;
When you are at rest and when you are unloading coal.

Is the sun still shining bright?

Is the sun still shining bright?
Let’s go and check a weather site.
Because there is no more desire
To live, live real, there is no fire!

Does love still exist?
“Oh, yes!!!”, postcard companies insist,
“Oh, yes!!!”, jewellers support,
“Just purchase, buy; the time is short!”

Has Jo turned off reason?
Has gotten used to indifference and treason?
Perhaps, in this Jo found pleasure…
Alone all day, almost blind by a screen, Jo’s “sacred treasure”…

But eyes are to see –
Jo’s soul is free.
Ears are to hear –
Jo will change and win, no need to fear!

Hiding place

Have you ever thought
That the Church can be a hiding place
For all who sought,
For a novice and an ace,

Especially on Sundays and feast days?
It keeps us busy
And to sin we are deprived of ways.
Therefore, have time to stop by and take it easy.
