Have you tried churching, friend?
It is like hiking, but you need to attend
A Church in the countryside or in town.
For this, you may need to walk or to take a ride
And to change to smile your frown.

The key is: that’s a spiritual adventure
To help you succeed in every good venture
And to get adequate rest;
To help focus on the important things
And to pass any good test.

A new day is a new life

A new day is a new life,
New beginning, new chance
For you, your worker, student, husband or wife,
Therefore, smile and join the dance!

Love story

You were several years younger
And I was so naive.
We met at the fishmonger’s,
You were about to leave.

I asked how the selection was that day.
You smiled and said what you liked.
You explained the best cooking way,
It was trout or pike.

You gave me your email
In case I forgot how.
Since then we often met; we often pray like in a fairy tale,
We’ve been married for twelve years now.

Keep a positive outlook in all

Keep a positive outlook in all.
I do not say, “be fluffy”.
Just do not lose a good disposition of your spirit to avoid a fall.
Practise this when all is good and when projects are stuffy.

Smile for all occasions

In every business – smile:
At work, in studies, at home;
Even when you are pushing a shopping cart through an aisle;
When yo are in a trench or under a dome.

Doing so will brighten your way,
And it will help achieve your goal.
Therefore, practise smile at night and during the day;
When you are at rest and when you are unloading coal.

Your eyes are deeper than Moraine Lake

Your eyes are deeper than Moraine Lake,
Your voice is more tender than the wave of the sea.
Your smile makes my sadness flake;
A talk with you is like a refreshing shade of a tree.

Your hair is softer than silk;
Your “hi” is reviving.
Your skin is milder than milk;
Your love is worth surviving.

I thank God that above all you are my friend.
We are as we are, we do not pretend.

Quoique arrive, la vie continue

Quoique arrive, la vie continue,
Ce n’est pas le temps pour être triste.
Souris, ton sourire pur est bien connu.
Combien de merveilles il existe!

Nous n’avons pas de temps
Pour pleurer à cause des banalités.
Tu as du bon sens,
Vivons aujourd’hui, c’est la réalité.

Les problèmes ne sont que le passé.
Donc, agissons pour faire du bien aux gens.
Tout est pour l’amour et c’est pas assez:
Petite pluie abattra grand vent!

Salt and light

You are the salt of the earth truly.
You are the light of the world indeed.
Live up to these words of our Saviour fully.
Smile and with caution and wisdom proceed.
