Het leven is een tuin

Winter zonder lente.

A beautiful summer, but
Winter without spring.

What do you want from us, Lord, for your generous gifts?
What are the benefits that you have not measured?
The Church will not embrace you, everywhere you are full,
And in the abyss and in the sea, on earth, in the sky.

I also don’t want gold, because it’s all yours,
Whatever is changing in this world.
Lord with grateful heart, we confess
Because we don’t have a more handsome victim.

You are the Lord of all the world, You have built the sky
And he embroidered beautifully with golden stars;
You founded the unearthed ground
And you covered her nakedness with various herbs.

At your command the sea stands in the shores
And the intended borders jump over afraid;
Rivers of uncounted waters have great generosity.
White day and dark night know their times.

You will see many flowers Spring gives birth,
You are in a wreath of flowers Summer is here.
Autumn wine and various apples,
Then lazy Winter gets up.

By your grace, the night dew on bland herbs will fall,
And the die-hard grain rain comes alive;
At your hands every animal looks at its food,
And you feed everyone on your generosity.

Be praised forever, immortal Lord!
Your grace, Your goodness will never cease.
Hide us while you deign in this low land;
Let me be one under Your wings!

[Jan Kochanowski, XXV Song from the Second Books, published in 1562. A masterpiece of Polish poetry.]

Jan Kochanowski, (born 1530, Sycyna, Poland—died August 22, 1584, Lublin), humanist poet who dominated the culture of Renaissance Poland.

Born into the country nobility, Kochanowski studied at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków and later, between 1552 and 1559, at the University of Padua in Italy. On his return to Poland in 1559, he served as a secretary at the royal court in Kraków. He married about 1575 and retired to his family estate at Czarnolas, in central Poland.

Wat wilt u van ons, Heer, voor uw gulle gaven?
Wat zijn de voordelen die u niet hebt gemeten?
De kerk zal je niet omarmen, overal waar je vol bent,
En in de afgrond en in de zee, op aarde, in de lucht.

Ik wil ook geen goud, want het is allemaal van jou,
Wat er in deze wereld verandert.
Heer met dankbaar hart, we bekennen
Omdat we geen knapper slachtoffer hebben.

Je bent de Heer van de hele wereld, je hebt de hemel gebouwd
En hij borduurde prachtig met gouden sterren;
Je hebt de opgegraven grond gesticht
En je bedekte haar naaktheid met verschillende kruiden.

Op uw bevel staat de zee in de oevers
En de beoogde grenzen springen bang over;
Rivieren van ontelbare wateren zijn grootmoedig.
Witte dag en donkere nacht kennen hun tijden.

Je zult veel bloemen zien De lente baart,
Je bent in een bloemenkrans. De zomer is hier.
Herfstwijn en verschillende appels,
Dan staat de luie Winter op.

Bij uw gratie zal de nachtdauw op zachte kruiden vallen,
En de die-hard graanregen komt tot leven;
Naar je handen kijkt elk dier naar zijn voedsel,
En u voedt iedereen met uw vrijgevigheid.

Wees voor altijd geprezen, onsterfelijke Heer!
Je genade, je goedheid zal nooit ophouden.
Verberg ons terwijl u zich verwaardigt in dit lage land;
Laat mij er een onder uw vleugels zijn!

[Jan Kochanowski, XXV lied uit de tweede boeken, gepubliceerd in 1562. Een meesterwerk van Poolse poëzie.]

Jan Kochanowski, (geboren 1530, Sycyna, Polen – stierf op 22 augustus 1584, Lublin), humanistische dichter die de cultuur van het Renaissance-Polen domineerde.

Kochanowski, geboren in de adel van het land, studeerde aan de Jagiellonische Universiteit in Krakau en later, tussen 1552 en 1559, aan de Universiteit van Padua in Italië. Bij zijn terugkeer naar Polen in 1559, diende hij als secretaris aan het koninklijk hof in Krakau. Hij trouwde omstreeks 1575 en trok zich terug in zijn familiebezit in Czarnolas, in centraal Polen.

Tri-Haiku XXV (October)

Poet's Corner

And so October
Memory of summer fades
and chill settles in

And yet the promise
as greenery turns to gold
with treasure to find

And as winter looms
summer falls from all the trees
as we wrap up warm

My favourite colour is October – Il mio colore preferito è Ottobre

In the Woods

Before speaking about anything else we just wanted to show you what is going on outside.

Prima di parlare di qualsiasi altra cosa vi volevamo far vedere cosa sta succedendo fuori.

It feels like autumn has arrived a little early this year and already the trees are almost bare, so we just wanted to share with you the beauty of one of the four seasons right here in our home.

Sembra che quest’anno l’autunno è arrivato un pò prima e già tanti alberi sono quasi spogli, quindi volevamo giusto condividere la bellezza di una di quattro stagioni qua, in casa nostra.

We can already feel the cold weather knocking on our door and there have been a few mornings when we woke up to the ground covered in frost. Winter is coming….

Si sente già l’aria fredda in arrivo e ci sono state un paio di mattinate quando ci siamo…

Summer Breeze

JamieAdStories

For many months we wait to be warmed,

Till leaves have blossomed and bees have swarmed,

The winter, cold and bleak and long,

Finally is submerged under a blanket of song.

As birds rush out and insects thrive,

Us humans grab our cars and drive,

To places full of sand and fun,

Our summer of love has just begun.

And as the evenings draw out wide,

Our barbecues fire up outside,

As parties start and drinks will flow,

And sun tan lotion helps our new tans grow.

We emerge into the summer bright,

Absorb the heat and sweat through each night,

We cherish every moment with ease,

Just waiting for a summer breeze.

A great evening and special days to look forward in 2019

Everywhere Spring is in the land, you might see that people want to clean and get rid of so many things gathered in Winter.

In several countries we also find that people want to get rid of their governments, though many of them do not look forward to the government the Most High Elohim has planned. They should know that this by God ordained government shall be the most efficient government and shall come to last for ever.

The coming days we shall remember how that king for the earthly kingdom was presented to the world. He was honoured when he entered Jerusalem, but soon lots of people shouted to kill him.

After his glorious entrance in Jerusalem he one night went into an upper room to be with his closest friends and to break bread with them. That “Breaking of bread” (or Betzi’at halechem) was so special we may not leave it un-remembered. The Nazarene rebbe asked his followers to take it in remembrance in the same way as his heavenly Father asked all God loving people to remember what He did for the enslaved in Egypt.

Concerning this special day I not invite you to read “Soon it shall be Erev Pesach and Passover 2019″ but also hope you shall be able to find near you a group of believers remembering that special gathering of Jeshua, Jesus Christ, the Messiah. And in case there is no Memorial Meal near you, why not invite others at your home to have one there?
