Love God with all your heart

DSCN0601
Love God with all your heart,
Be frank in it: in whole, in part.
You will see the way!
God will show, so love and pray.

Love in word and love in deed
For love is dead without good seeds.
So many brothers are in need,
Look at your neighbour, his poverty pleads.

Love God and remember:
From January through December,
From morning till night,
Let your love shine, let love be bright!

In such a way

Live in such a way
That nothing overshadows your day
Because you skip good words to say,
Good deeds to do, a long-awaited visit to pay.

You work a lot, but remember to rest;
No need to overwork, just do your best.
In studies, prepare timely for your test.
Say prayers and with love build your nest.

Que la paix soit sur le peuple de Dieu!

DSCN0308
Dieu voit les chemins des hommes pour le jugement et pour l’honneur.
Il juge des méchants dans chaque lieu,
Et les bons ont peur et glorifient le Seigneur.
Que la paix soit sur le peuple de Dieu!

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.

Smile for all occasions

DSCN0307
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.

Where there is God, there is victory

Forget_me_not_ponds_Kananaskis_Alberta_Canada_(23455900701)
Where there is love which is true,
There is truth and God indeed.
Where there is God, there is victory all the way through.
It is in word, in thought and in deed.

Only make sure that your love is not blind,
But patient, forgiving, orderly truly.
On God, your neighbour, the truth set your mind;
With that you will win, you will overcome duly.

Де закриваються двері, відкриваються ворота

Де закриваються двері, відкриваються ворота;
Тому шлагбаум в одному місці – не сумна, а весела нота.
Отже, звеселися і далі певно йди,
А щоб вірним був шлях – молися і Господь направить куди.

Де любов, там – Бог; де Бог, там – перемога

Forget_me_not_ponds_Kananaskis_Alberta_Canada_(22911267723)
Де любов, там – Бог; де Бог, там – перемога.
Тому, якщо ти щиро любиш, це – вірна дорога.
Любов – не безумна, а натхненна, любить порядок, добро,
Тому вір, надійся, люби, – бо переможе саме воно.

Hiding place

Eiffel_Lake_Hike_Alberta_Canada_(19486011932)
Have you ever thought
That the Church can be a hiding place
For all who sought,
For a novice and an ace,

Especially on Sundays and feast days?
It keeps us busy
And to sin we are deprived of ways.
Therefore, have time to stop by and take it easy.

Інколи буває сумно

Інколи буває сумно.
Сумно коли не цінують,
І важче стає цінити розумно.
Вони лише критикують.

Критика часто руйнує,
А будувати так важко.
Від того серце сумує
Й на душі якось тяжко.

Та чи вони знають?
Думають, так,
Насправді ж ламають;
Нове їм не на смак.

Не розуміють,
Тому й відкидають.
Непевність легко сіють,
Про відкриття мало дбають.

Але ти не сумуй,
Знай переможе добро.
Своїм шляхом сміливо крокуй;
Утверджуй розумом житло.
