A friend of mine just came back from Japan and they gave me piece of fortune paper.

Unfortunately, it's in Japanese and I can't read Japanese so I was hoping if someone can please translate this?

I'm intrigued to know what is actually written here :)

I have tried Google Translate but that wasn't useful at all.
Appreciate the help :)

Blessing (the 4th grade in (usually) 6 or 7)

霜いくたび おけど かれざる 松が枝の ときわの 色の うつくしき かな
How many times frost falls on pine tree branches, they don't die. How beautiful their evergreen color is.
(written in a traditional Japanese poem style)

なにごとにも心動かず常業を守ってゆくときは おもいがけぬ幸をうることあり
If your mind is unshaken by anything and you keep your daily works, you might get unexpected good fortune.

いろいろと迷うときは人にたぶらかされて身のおき所にも苦しみます
If you can't make a decision, you'll be tricked by others and be troubled with what to do with yourself.

願望 心長くして騒がねば時いたりて叶う
If you keep cool, your wish will come true in due time.

待ち人 来てもおそい
The one you are waiting for might arrive, but it will be too late.

失物 出る 低いところ
You can find your lost thing at low place.

旅行 利なし ひかえよ
You'll gain nothing in your travel. You shouldn't go.

商売 利少し 物価定らず
You'll gain little in your business. Price is unsteady.

学問 努力すればよろし
If you work hard in your learning, it's good.

相場 変動激し 要心せよ
The market will strongly fluctuate. Take care.

争事 静かにすればよし
You'd better keep quiet in a conflict.

恋愛 今の人が最上迷うな
The one you are loving is the best. Don't be indecisive.

転居 よろしからず
House-moving is not good.

出産 よろし 安心すべし
Childbirth is good. You don't need to worry about it.

病気 心長く保養せよ
Take a rest slowly for your health.

縁談 人のことばに迷わず心を定めよ吉
Decide about your marriage by yourself without obeying others. It will be good.
