When you can, give

IMG_3635
When you can, give.
And you will be given.
Be gracious and thankful and live,
You never know where you will be driven.

What you have, do not hide,
Open your mind, be bright.
Let your life outlook be wide;
Keep your inner spark always in sight!

Even blind person can see while believes

You went bust
And tried to drown the misfortune in whisky.
Your mind dimmed and liver suffered rust.
Became better? No! More risky!

Have you lost your hand
Like the guy?
Or your eyesight? So tell me why,
Why can’t you see the rich land?

Even those poor guys
Do not look back closing their eyes.
A deaf man will see the rise,
A blind man will hear it ’cause he tries.

Enough, stand up, just start.
Think about your heart
Which you can’t deceive.
You’ve got to believe.

More important than money

♥ ♥ ♥

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.

Saints Among Us

SONY DSC
Have you ever thought
That there are saints among us?
In the street, in Church, at school, at work, on a bus?
Maybe, when you forgot

To lock your car,
They were there for you.
They went the way all the way through.
They cared whether you were close or far.

They looked after your baby.
They fed your dog.
They protected against a rogue.
They did not read your mind, maybe,

But they prayed for you every day.
I know, somebody hurt us in the past –
Now for seeing good stuff we are not fast,
But let’s keep our hearts open June through May.
