Just for today

Just for today,
I will be happy truly;
I will live a worry-free day;
I will fulfill my duties duly.

I will not overwork,
But I will do just right;
I will pray before I use my fork,
And I will focus on light.

Each person has her/his own day

Each person has her/his own day.
Even if everyone around seems so smart,
Pay attention, keep doing the right thing the right way, pray.
Start with faith and humbleness that come from the heart. Use art.

Don’t be envious, do not freak out.
Keep calm, be simple and wise.
Stout or slim, with a workout or without,
Awesomize; remember that steady wins the prize and he who tries.

Борітеся, поборете

Jasper Athabasca Falls
Борітеся, поборете
І всяку навалу підкорите.
Борітеся, сміливо стійте,
Із молитвою і любов’ю дійте.

Це – правда не тільки для загалу
І у захисті від ворожого навалу,
Але для кожного з нас на плоди чудові –
Стіймо у дусі сміливості, здорового розуму, любові.

Hold your faith at all times

Hold your faith at all times
Although life may have presented limes…
Hold and keep on praying.
There is time for reflecting and time for playing.

Above all, stay in love that is true,
Let it get you all the way through!
Rely on God and go
And you will have good fruit to mow!

Glorify God in all your deeds

Glorify God in all your deeds,
Both big and small.
Let your praise precede your needs;
Open your heart and thankfully call.

Don’t doubt,
As long as strength abides,
Whether in or out,
Glorify God in a quiet prayer and presentation slides!
