Is it Winter or Spring?

Standard

The weather is so confusing these days.

Just now it was snowing and it felt like -2 degrees

and on my walk I find this pretty thing braving the cold .

Tomorrow it is supposed to be +11 degrees.

The bulbs think it is Spring as they come already.

We take it as it comes and

let the sun shine from our heart!

My Garden Heaven

Standard

Come with me in my little garden.

Small but so enjoyable and beautiful.

Enjoy the small things and see the beauty in it.

My strawberries are coming so lovely this year.

They are bigger in size, as we had lots of rain,

still not quite red as we do not have enough sun, but…..

All things grow with love!

Slowly they are getting red though, see for yourself:

Almost any garden,

if you see it at just the right moment,

can be confused with paradise.

Live today / The sun always shines – Udo Juergens

Standard

 May I quote some sentences taken from songs,

written and performed by Udo Juergens,

an Austrian Singer and songwriter, whose music

I grew up with. He sadly passed away unexpectedly on 21.12.2014.

May he rest in peace, he will always be remembered.

His songs are famous, he wrote many songs to give hope, and make you think about life!

I chose 3 which I love and their message is important! ( I have translated these important verses)

Hast du heute schon gelebt….

1988

Hast du die Sonne auf der Haut gespürt?

Hast du heute schon den Menschen, der dich liebt berührt?

Hast du schon gestaunt heut?

Hast du schon gelacht?

Hast du heut schon nach dem unmöglichen Traum gestrebt?

Hast du heute schon, heute schon gelebt?

Have you lived today?

Have you felt the sun on your skin?

Have you touched the person who loves you ?

Have you been amazed today?

Have you laughed already? 

Have you reached out to the impossible dream?

Have you already lived today!


Heute beginnt der Rest deines Lebens…

1995

Jetzt oder nie – und nicht irgendwann!
Schau’ auf dein Ziel – kein Traum ist vergebens.
Heut’ fängt die Zukunft an!

Today is the beginning of the rest of your life….

now or never – not anytime,

look at your goal –  no dream is in vain,

today the future starts.

Immer, immer wieder geht die Sonne auf

1967

Wenn ein Traum, irgendein Traum sich nicht erfüllt,

wenn die Liebe zu Ende geht,
wenn selbst die Hoffnung nicht mehr besteht,
nur Einsamkeit,
wenn ein Blatt, Irgendein Blatt vom Baume fällt,
weil der Herbstwind es so bestimmt,
wenn das Schicksal uns etwas nimmt,
vertraue der Zeit.
Denn:

Immer, immer wieder geht die Sonne auf
und wieder bringt ein Tag für uns ein Licht,
Ja, immer, immer wieder geht die Sonne auf,
denn Dunkelheit für immer gibt es nicht,
die gibt es nicht, die gibt es nicht.

The sun rises again and again

If a dream is not fulfilled,

when love comes to an end,

when hope no longer exists

only loneliness,

when a leaf, any leaf falls from the tree as the Autumn wind determines,

when fate takes something from us,

trust time, because

The sun rises again and again

and again the day brings us some light,

yes the sun rises again and again,

because forever darkness does not exist, does not exist!

 

Have you lived today?

The sun shines for you every day.

May the sun shine in your heart everyday!

Wishing you a wonderful end to this year and let us welcome the new one soon!
