The right choices aren’t always easy,
But they aren’t always hard.
Take prayer, for instance, when you are free or busy,
It protects from being caught off guard.
Use it in the morning, at night
And as often as needed.
Let your soul be light,
Let good stuff in your heart be seeded.
Prayer “takes away” minutes, but saves days;
It promotes health and cheer;
It opens new ways;
It directs to God and all things that are dear.

Respect your woman, gent.
Put her before play, work, rent.
Not only will she be your blessing day and night,
You yourself will feel confident, light!

Oh God Father, thank You
For kind people around!
Thank You for the crystals of life which we call ‘dew’!
Thank You for a forest creek sound!
If not Your gracious support,
I would be in the kingdom of night.
But Your Word is Life, an invincible fort!
You cure my wound, You make my burden light!

Shine your way –
Hard or light –
Have courage to say:
“You are so bright!”
But saying is insufficient –
Believe if you want all to be efficient.
Be of good cheer!
Share the things that are dear!

I like when you are around –
It’s like serotonin and vitamin D that abound.
Your eyes are of the most beautiful hue;
I like speaking with you.
You make hard things light:
Your ideas are effortless, bright.
I am your gent, you are my dame;
I like the sound of your name.

Forgive although you were right.
Forgive to make your heart light.
Forgive not because of what they do,
But because of who you are, because God loves you.

Love God with all your heart,
Always in prayer, thank for success.
If you have problems, use them to improve your “learn and move on” art –
By doing so you will achieve more, not less.
Be cheerful, with lightness in heart,
Know that night will not last forever.
The morning is soon to start!
In the meanwhile, be clever!

More important than money,
More important than food.
Better than honey,
Lighter than wood.
It is weak…
But stronger than rock.
It is a clear creek.
Wider than ocean, faster than clock.
Above all it is kind,
Jealousy melts like coal.
It brings to Heaven a devoted mind.
It heals a soul.

If things do not stick together,
Patience, it will soon pass.
You will spread your beautiful wings feeling lighter than a feather.
Fill up with patience as you fill up with gas.

The sun is shining,
But you are the only thing that’s blinding.
All this time, girl, where have you been hiding?
You are like a yacht that’s gliding.
We enjoy our shared time
You write the best greetings for me, and I compose you a rhyme.
We cook and enjoy our meal together.
When we pray we are lighter than a feather.

Did you know that the first carol ever
Was sung by angels and shepherds heard?
They left all to come, but brought their herd.
Magi came too: their decision was clever.
Let us set aside all cares of life –
Let’s come to Church to celebrate Christmas together!
Be your kind self, bring your friends, your children, and wife.
Set aside worries, today be lighter than a feather!

A good way to share the Christmas Spirit is to sing together,
To make people’s mood lighter than a feather!
So, come, join the song,
Don’t be afraid to be wrong.
Let’s sing about His glory and love!
Let’s ask for a peace dove
For all the people, near and far!
Let’s wait and watch the first star.
It’s Christmas, do sing and believe!
You will receive
The things you need.
The reward is great for every kind deed.
God loves you very much;
The extent of this love is such
That He gave His Only-begotten Son for you.
He wants you to be happy and to break through.

Our environment is our home.
Nature is fragile and needs protection.
We get food and all we need under its dome,
But today it is in a state which requires a decisive action.
Wars, transportation, air pollution,
These things require a wise solution.
Man is a reason-endowed creature, not a dumb vulture.
First we need to control our appetite,
Then we should develop alternative ways –
Each of us can make his/her impact light.
We should act fast – within hours, not within days.

You have been beautiful a million times,
But nothing can fully describe how you look tonight, not a hundred thousand rhymes.
Something in your attentive eyes
Remind how much luckier I am than all those other guys.
Something in the way you smile,
Something in the dress and make-up style;
Something in the way you step which is so light –
You look so good tonight!
