One hour in the morning is worth three

One hour in the morning, friend,
Is worth three in the eve,
Whether you begin an activity or end,
Whether you come or leave.

Therefore, do what’s important early in the day –
Add a step toward your dream;
Do morning exercises, pray.
Live, be happy, gleam.

Be patient in all important things

Be patient in all important things.
This means – do not worry.
However much waiting life brings;
However much trial and error – do not be sorry.

You can make corrections along the way.
However hard or busy – remember to pray.
Small as this thing may seem –
It will help approach your dream.

Keep your kind dream in sight!

Keep your kind dream in sight!
Keep working, perhaps, it is within a byte.
Perhaps, you’ll need more work, more thinking power…
Pray on; keep it simple; dedicate to it the morning hour.

Bells are singing a merry tune

Upper_Kananaskis_lake_(15621455067)
Bells are singing a merry tune
Above the city and country, forest, and dune;
The Wonderful Day is coming here,
Fairy Christmas is already near.

Don’t hesitate,
Open your heart till it’s not too late:
All your dreams will come true,
Believe and the rain of grace will pour upon you.

You are free in God, so –
More confidence, be ready to mow.
Merry Christmas I wish!
Be blessed and enjoy your Christmas dish!

До Різдва Христового

20161222_174838
Різдво! Хай кожен радіє
Бо прийшов Спаситель у світ.
У серцях добро хай вільно панує і діє,
У країну миру здійснімо політ!

Природа Божа спокоєм дивує,
Горобці щиро радість сповіщають.
Відкрите небо здійснéння мрій дарує.
Віра, надія, любов нас, людей, обіймають.

Уважний побачить,
Дуже ж поважний – можливо.
Щирість кожного собі розтлумачить,
Чиста любов, проста радість – як це важливо!

Pretty girl, don’t cry

Pretty girl, don’t cry;
He left you, but try.
Wipe off your tears and fly
On the wings of your dreams so high.

You left her, what for
Still seeking anything more?
You say you broke no law –
I say you declared a war.

What a disaster a hypocrite heart can bring –
It’s like a sharp sting
Which hurts a bird’s wing
Not allowing her to fly or to sing.

Різдво Христове

cam00203
Дякую, Боже, за дивне життя,
За любов попре усе,
За грішного сина Твого прийняття.
За підтримки Твоєї він всяку скорботу знесе.

У свято Різдва серце співає!
Боже, за радість дякую щиру.
Душа невимовно Тебе вихваляє.
Ти Один подаєш справжню силу!

Боже, з нами будь завжди, благаю,
Ти – Великий, Єдиний, на Тебе надія!
Що буде завтра не знаю
Та за віру, любов я іду, така наша мрія!

It’s easy to give up

It’s easy to give up
And not difficult to fall,
To stumble and to stop, to lose all.
But to go on, to make up…

It’s not shameful to misfire,
But it’s shameful not to get up.
Try, a bright ray will light up,
A clear dream will inspire.

Whatever happens, believe

It is easy to believe when all is smooth,
But try to be consistent whatsoever:
No matter who would like you to lose,
God is with you forever.

Whatever happens, believe.
Let your heart follow your dream.
Whatever news you receive,
Let your soul faithfully gleam!
