Positive

Mount_Wilson_in_Banff_National_Park,_Canada
Be patient, forgive each other;
Gird yourselves with love for God and your brother;
Let God’s peace prevail in you
For you are called to it, it’s true.

Be grateful, teach and perfect in wisdom each day,
Whether at work or at play.
Let your faith and love be seen in acts;
Let your words be based on the truth and your judgement – on facts.

Oh Lord, forgive me for being slow

Oh Lord, forgive me for being slow…
Teach me in Your faith and love to grow,
To be in time for Your service and prayer,
To be kind, wise, and fair!

Все добро – від Бога

Дякую, Боже, за все, що мав і маю:
Все добро – від Тебе – знаю;
І до Тебе сміливо прибігаю,
Смиренно прощення благаю…

Господи, дякуємо Тобі за Твою Любов!

Господи, дякуємо Тобі за Твою Любов!
За дива Твої, що й досі твориш.
Помилуй і захисти нас знов!
Дякуємо, що до нас через пророків і Писання говориш!

Боже, пробач наші гріхи,
За милістю Твоєю нам чини.
Але й нас настав, укріпи
На добрі діла сміливо йти,
На щирі слова та чисті думки,
Щоб до Тебе нам руки ще піднести!
Дякуємо, Боже, за щедре добро Твоєї руки.

If love is being happy about little things

Mt_Kidd_Alberta_Canada_(25697606658)
If love is being happy about little things,
I want to be there, letting go stings.
If love means forgiving sincerely,
I want to do this fully, not merely.
If love means getting rid of fears,
I want this to happen and to wipe off your tears.
If love means to share good things,
I want you to be close for all that life brings.

Mothers

Jasper_NP_944
Most mothers, I believe,
Qualify for sainthood truly.
They love, they sacrifice, they forgive;
They are not afraid of the unruliest bully.

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!
