When we are in extreme situations,
It’s what seems the least that matters the most:
Prayer, a word of support, and patience,
Faith, hope, love a quarrel closed,
Repentance, Communion, communication,
Fresh air, sleep, enough water and rest.
Therefore, remember these at all times, in any nation.
In loving God and neighbour – do your best.

Travels make me wise and stronger
So that I could stand longer.
And what I missed at school,
I will learn, it’s like a rule.
New people, communication,
Good friends, fresh information,
I’ll learn and see much new;
It is like a breeze, like morning dew.

Life is new,
Life is fresh,
Life is indescribable!
Every morning brings new life,
I wake up and live anew.
I am brave to face a strife,
I am glad to see the dew.
One morning -> one more hope,
I am so lucky to live,
Friendship and love are in scope,
We will win, I believe.
Thank You Father for life!

Like a white dove…
It cures, brings good health.
Real love is a shield for the soul.
In summer it is like a gulp of fresh juice,
In winter it is better than coal.
Love is rich & that’s the truth;
Love is young and mature,
It will win in any strife.
With love we endure.
Love is life!

I am Alberta-bound.
I fell in love with this province completely;
In no other place have I found
Air which blows so sweetly;
Mountains which soar so acutely;
Lakes with water so fresh and lots of fish;
Deer, squirrels, bunnies that run freely absolutely.
Alberta, wherever I travel, you are my wish.

Do I still have the wisdom
To be happy about little things?
Can I still spread my little wings;
Listen to a running stream without boredom;
Smell fresh air, flowers;
See the blueness of the sky,
The greenness of the grass growing by;
Marvel at ancient towers?
Oh, I think I do.
I just forget sometimes.
Thank Thee, Father, for these rhymes.
Thank Thee for taking me through!
If it doesn’t stick, bud,
Use a tape around that part.
If a car has passed and got you in mud,
Take it easy, be kindly smart.
Remember to run –
This is to cover your winning mile.
Remember to enjoy fresh air, bright sun.
Remember to smile =)

Fresh air, physical + thinking exercises, and water
Are some of the things that help maintain health and stay sharp.
These things are good for you, your wife, your son and daughter.
Implement to feel like fish in water, like a carp.
Another thing is sufficient sleep.
Use it to stay active during the day,
To be able to think in a way which is deep,
To have strength to prepare more hay.

Blueberry! What a delicious thing!
If you go to visit a friend, that’s the best thing to bring!
It is rich in antioxidants and healthy all over
With tart, sweet taste and gentle scent as freshly cut clover.
