THE HOUSE IS BATHED

IT OFFERS TRANQUIL

SOME TIME LATER, THE POET MET HIS FRIEND AND ASKED
WHETHER HE HAD SOLD THE PROPERTY?
TO WHICH HE REPLIED: I’VE CHANGED MY MIND.
WHEN I READ WHAT YOU HAD WRITEN,
I REALIZED THE TREAESURE THAT WAS MINE.
SOMETIMES WE UNDERESTIMATE THE GOOD THINGS WE HAVE,
CHASING AFTER THE MIRAGES OF FALSE TREASURES.
WE OFTEN SEE PEOPLE LETTING GO OF THEIR
CHILDREN, THEIR FAMILIES, THEIR SPOUSES, THEIR
FRIENDS, THEIR PROFESSION,
THEIR KNOWLEDGE - ACCUMULATED OVER MANY YEARS ,
THEIR GOOD HEALTH, THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE.
THEY THROW
OUT THE WINDOW
WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN
THEM,
SO FREELY,
THINGS WHICH WERE
NOURISHED WITH SO
MUCH CARE AND
EFFORT .
LOOK AROUND,
APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE:
YOUR HOME, YOUR LOVED ONES,
FRIENDS ON WHOM YOU CAN REALLY
COUNT, THE KNOWLEDGE YOU...
AND ALL THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS OF LIFE,
THAT ARE TRULY
YOUR MOST PRECIOUS TREASURE.
WE CAN NO LONGERT SHOWER KINDNESS ON THOSE WE
LOVE, AFTER THEY HAVE DIED.
IT IS USELESS TO
WANT TO RE-DO
THE WORK THAT WE
MAY HAVE DONE
NEGLIGENTLY.
IT‘S BEST TO
APPRECIATE AND DO
THINGS WELL NOW.
ASK OF GOD AT EVERY MOMENT
THAT OUR PROBLEMS AND CONCERNS
NEVER DEGENERATE
INTO FEELINGFS OF SADNESS AND ANXIETY.
BE IN UNION WITH GOD,
WHO WILL PROVIDE THE COURAGE NEEDED
TO BE CERTAIN OF VICTORY IN THE STRUGGLE,
WE ARE ALL IMPERFECT.WE ARE ALL IMPERFECT.
ALWAYS PRAISE AND VALUE YOUR FAMILY,ALWAYS PRAISE AND VALUE YOUR FAMILY,
DO ALL...
INSTEAD OF ISOLATING YOURSELF,
BECAUSE OF WEAKNESS OR FAILURE,
SEEK TO INVEST IN TRUE AND CONSTRUCTIVE
FRIENDSHIP IN YOUR ...
FAITH IN GOD IS NECESSARY
TO STRENGTHEN SELF-ESTEEM
IN DEALING WITH DAILY PROBLEMS.
MY WISH FOR YOU
BE WITH GOD – AND
MAY GOD BE WITH YOU
