All things are good in measure

All things are good in measure;
And too much of one thing is good for nothing, truly.
Enough work, a little leisure…
A bit of sadness, enough of happiness with gratitude fully.

No good deed is too small

No good deed is too small,
Whether it’s picking up a glove,
Holding the door or being gentle on a phone call,
Whether it’s feeding a man or a dove…

Be thankful for a good deed;
Accept gratitude with a gentle, shining smile too.
You are changing the world taking lead:
One good deed at a time, true.

Happy because alive

Happy because alive;
Snappy because I strive;
Thankful – I have so much;
Hopeful; with friends in touch.

Always, always, and always
I must be grateful –
As the real faithful,
All days, all days, and all days.

I don’t know what is ahead.
I don’t feel lack of bread.
My brain, my way, my strife.
My heart, my soul, my life.

Every breath is a gift

Alberta_Rocky_Mountains_(39358603442)
Every breath is a gift,
Rejoice, do kind, silly things, be swift.
Let your gratitude be obvious in your deeds and voice.
Whether you are going close or far, rejoice.

Не боюся

Дякую, Боже, за любов, яку раб Твій відчув,
За людей Твоїх, яких раб Твій зустрів,
За слова підтримки, які раб Твій почув,
За все, що рабу Твоєму простив.

Більш ніж будь-що, раб Твій – вдячний.
І хоч інколи шлях – лячний,
Не боїться раб Твій іти.
За провини, Господи, прости.

Try everything

When you are too afraid to go,
Try everything – all worthy things to grow.
When you are ready to quit,
Just try your wit.

In all good business keep smart and fair;
Before you make an important decision, remember to say a prayer.
Be simple and clever,
Be grateful ever.

Praise God with a grateful heart

20161106_073657
Praise God with a grateful heart.
Let your praise, both big and small be sincere.
Have time to say “Thank You” to Him whether you go far or near.
God will make a way, continue doing your part.

They have surrounded and encircled me

They have surrounded and encircled me,
But I have overcome them by the Name of the Lord completely.
They were going to advance, but had to flee.
God’s work is revealed to those who believe not abstractly, but concretely.

Lord, may Your slave be faithful,
Let Your slave be grateful.
Let Your slave speak of Your magnificent deeds.
Let Your might help your slaves in their needs.
