Attitudes towards Unity

“Be completely humble and gentle, be patient bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”

Your Father Loves YOU by Rocco DiTrolio

Your Father Loves YOU!

I remember when our first son was born. What an incredible feeling to know that God had gifted us with this child. Throughout the years I’ve learned how to love him, understand him and to give him what he needs. It was fun to be able to give him gifts that first Christmas (he was only two weeks old) but as he grew and came to understand the value of a gift, it was even more satisfying to be able to give him what he wanted. As he grew and came to realize the he could actually ask me for something, it gave me great pleasure to be able to respond to his request. Now that both of our boys are older (and the cost of the gift seems to be getting higher each year!) I still enjoy giving them gifts. Read the rest of this entry »


 

The Alabaster Box by Ellen DiTrolio

The Alabaster Box

There will always be critics. It seems at times that no matter what you do, it just isn’t good enough for some people. There will be times when others just won’t understand the motives behind your actions. That’s when we really need to rethink why we do what we do? Matthew 26:6-13 tells us the story of a woman who gave the best she could for her savior and then was actually criticized for it.

Matthew 26:6 begins our story: “There came to him (Jesus) a woman having an alabaster box of very precious perfume and poured it on his head as he sat eating.” Sounds beautiful right? Well listen to verse eight. “But when the disciples saw it they had indignation saying “why this waste? They asked. This perfume could have been sold for a high price and the money given to the poor.” Read the rest of this entry »


 

Thoughts from Ellen- Resolutions 2008

December 26th, 2007

Resolutions

It’s January and that means it is time to make a new years resolution. Well this year I am on strike. I will make no resolutions, no new goals or plans for this year. Every year prior to this one I have made my list like all the other hopeful people in the world. So what stopped me? I believe that it is important to set goals; but are most New Years resolutions reasonable goals or unrealistic fantasies? I have decided that making a new years resolution is a set up for failure. Most of us will say that we want to lose weight, (it really must be the number one resolution…..don’t you think?) Some will decide they will be more punctual and others will decide to make changes in the bad habits that they want to be rid of. Read the rest of this entry »
