UNCONDITIONAL LOVE (Part 3)

ARTWORK BY Jorge Cocco Santangelo     Of all the things Jesus Christ taught us, loving each other was the core principle.  He set the example by being willing to die a horrible death....all alone.

WHEN THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE PROBLEM

Have you ever been curious as to why your grown up children can make you feel so sad or so mad?  Or do you think you know exactly why...."it's the way they treat me". What if I was to tell you that what they do or don't do isn't the reason that is causing you to have […]

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

It's a gift we've all been given....well, really it's a gift we give ourselves.  To choose to love someone (even if they're difficult to love or underserving of our love) is the most important gift we'll ever give ourselves.  Love is an emotion that can swell up inside us and flow into every part of […]
