By God’s Grace

I am more educated than my instructors
Because I reflect on God’s ways.
I am more vigilant than orchestra conductors
Because I listen to God since the youth of my days.

He made me wiser than the old
Because I follow His commandments day and night.
He makes me whole and bold
Because I glorify Him with all my heart, knowledge, and might.

Une compagnon, mais pas trop sage

Je suis à toi
Un compagnon, mais pas trop sage
Je n’ai pas d’argent comme des rois,
Et j’ai jeune âge.

Mais j’ai aussi un cœur fidèle,
Une âme qui a de l’espoir,
De l’amour qui est plus doux que miel,
De la foi qui aide à marcher sans savoir.

Merci, o Seigneur!

Perennial values

Sometimes she makes mistakes.
It’s natural, it’s alright.
Nevertheless, her young heart aches.
She’s a modern girl and is always ready to fight.

She works hard
And can never forgive herself a blunder.
They say, “It’s a normal state of things, dear bard.
Calm down, we need no thunder”.

How can it be OK
If she has no time for her family and friends?
Her work is a beast and she is a prey.
Pure soul is the treasure, but not what money sends.

Love

Love.
What else?
Like a white dove…
It cures, brings good health.
Real love is a shield for the soul.
In summer it is like a gulp of fresh juice,
In winter it is better than coal.
Love is rich & that’s the truth;
Love is young and mature,
It will win in any strife.
With love we endure.
Love is life!

Dressed up for weather

Do not be shy of dressing up for the weather.
Do not consider too much what people will think:
They will admire! Whether
You realize this or not. Appropriate clothes are a link
To healthy you. Who needs young people who are sick?
Before going out, search the weather, make that extra click!

Cheer up, don’t be upset

DSCN9503Cheer up, don’t be upset,
You’re strong and young.
How many miracles you haven’t seen yet!
Come on, find and learn your tongue!

Don’t allow yourself to be sad
About unimportant things
Because this state is rhymed to “mad”,
Melancholy can only clip your wings.

My students

University students
My students are smart.
They may lack wisdom, but they are working on it;
They are making much progress, not just a bit.
To advance is what they have put to their heart.

Students are juice of economy in any city:
They are young and ready to work;
For them, job comes first and only then a spoon and a fork.
They work a lot and they are witty.

So teach students with appreciation;
Hire them for the best jobs as soon as you can.
They will help you to make a plan
To succeed and to advance your business among the whole population.
