A “donkey”

Have you ever thought that your body, indeed,
Is a “donkey” carrying you to the Kingdom of God and your task is to feed
And to take care for it in a proper way:
To prevent a disease, to get enough sleep, to pray…

If you overfeed it, it will go mad;
If you underfeed, it will go bad;
If it gets sick, it will carry no more.
Therefore, be smart and care to reach the Door.

When there seems to be no escape

When there seems to be no escape,
Pray, my friend!
Do not run away from your landscape;
We never know what will be in the end.

Maybe, God has lowered us for an instant
To bring us yet higher at a later time.
Keep on trying although victories seem distant!
Let us pray to make juice of our lime!

Для енергії на день потрібна зарядка ранкова;
Для душевних сил – молитва – християнський захист і підтримка виняткова;
Для настрою ж гарного, – посмішка, тому старайся:
Хай складно як, віруй, будь спок, посміхайся.

Dream your dreams

Dream your dreams of the most beautiful hue
And work to make them come true.
Eat your veggies every day;
Be gentle, patient and faithfully pray.

Sail Day

Today in the Church we had a sail day.
It is not when we get a discount,
But an uplifting opportunity, to gather with like-minded people to pray;
To say “forgive me”, to commune, to do all things that really count.

Твори добро

Flower and Grass
Твори добро,
Велике і маленьке.
Твори добро,
Хоч каже хтось “слабеньке”.

Нехай у цьому
Будеш щира/щирий.
Зростай, укріплюйся у ньому,
Хоч сумніваються усі, ти віруй!

Твори добро!
Не будь переможений злом,
Але перемагай зло добром.
Твори добро!

Нехай лице умию
І серце з радістю відкрию;
Нехай по милості Твоїй дістану
Та на молитву подячну стану!

Ways to take worry under control

Dog in Water
It is nearly impossible to avoid worry,
But it is possible to take it under control;
To prevent health issues and to deserve glory.
Worry is a dangerous beast, it’s not a doll.

The way number one is to pray,
In the morning and in the eve,
Without haste and without delay;
It doesn’t have to be long, but make sure you believe.

Another way is faith at all times.
God loves you, right?
Act accordingly even when you get limes;
Remember about the Kingdom and focus on light.
