Have you tried churching, friend?
It is like hiking, but you need to attend
A Church in the countryside or in town.
For this, you may need to walk or to take a ride
And to change to smile your frown.

The key is: that’s a spiritual adventure
To help you succeed in every good venture
And to get adequate rest;
To help focus on the important things
And to pass any good test.

Believe, amis!

Believe despite hardships, ami(e)!
Whether you like cheddar or brie,
When all is good, remember too:
Faith, hope and love are a must to break through.

Your eyes are deeper than Moraine Lake

Your eyes are deeper than Moraine Lake,
Your voice is more tender than the wave of the sea.
Your smile makes my sadness flake;
A talk with you is like a refreshing shade of a tree.

Your hair is softer than silk;
Your “hi” is reviving.
Your skin is milder than milk;
Your love is worth surviving.

I thank God that above all you are my friend.
We are as we are, we do not pretend.

Giving birth to children

Giving birth to children, friend,
Has never been about money –
It has always been about love you send,
Not about an extra mouth to take away “your” honey.

Thus, it’s not about money to support –
It is about love to give.
If you have love, never fear to give birth to whole cohort.
If you lack love, it’s better if by yourself you live.

Whatever happens, stand
Despite all hardships and misfortunes,
Despite your words or deeds you need to amend;
Despite all losses and fortunes.

When it’s more than you can handle, pray.
You have the Church, your family and friends, hey!
No need to wait for a negative thing to arrive…
Keep praying and in prayer thank, share, ask – you are alive.

Вище ніс

Не падай духом, друже
І не засмучуйся дуже.
Тримай вище ніс;
Ти вже набагато більше зніс.

Вір і сміливо крокуй уперед.
Хай інколи слова чи справи – не мед
Та у тебе ж серце, голова!
Роби добру справу і фільтруй нечемні слова.

Through all your life length

Have courage, my friend,
In any situation till the very end!
Let your heart not faint,
Remember people who are saint!

God is with you!
You will break through.
Have courage and strength
Through all your life length.

Тримай вище голову

Тримай вище голову, друже.
Ти – особливий і так само те, що маєш –
Все буде добре, пам’ятати то треба дуже –
Цінуй, що є, сміливо крокуй попри все і ще більше надбаєш.
