Sayings and Proverbs
Nails on the Door
The wind blows, the boat is ready.
The waves roll and fly, evaporating.
The Sun smiles, while stars hide their faces.
The breeze is cold, numbing, like kisses;
The kisses of an enemy who called herself sister.
Liberty that enslaves, making soul-less shadows
At the feet of the mighty, the powerful.
Open shackles that drag behind our feet,
"Fers" still around our ankles.
Empty crosses hanging on empty hearts--
Les coeurs de los que se dicen chretiens.
Deadly selfishness, pride, and negligence:
Weapons with which estas matando a tu hermano
Jesus Christ is a swear word
Because of fishes sans amour,
Wolves in sheep skin, dead pulpit y bancos;
But Jesus died on the cross for you--
Pas de conte, true truth, no es un cuento
His love for you is alive,
As real as His resurrection.
There are a few lights shining around you.
Get close to them, cheer up, and don't despair.
Receive God's love and share.
It is not the sheep's, but the wolves' deception.
