Seven Spiritual Resolutions

In this Five Minutes with Tony, Tony offers seven spiritual resolutions for your new year.  We are either on one of two trajectories, growing in our relationship with God, or frankly, we are growing away from God (toward the devil).  As we are reminded in the book of Romans; we are either moving toward darkness or moving toward the light.

My Christmas Train

Before I could open the box my parents sat me down and told me that a neighbor boy’s father had been laid off and they couldn’t afford presents for my friend. Wouldn’t it be nice if I gave up one of my toys so that he would have something under his Christmas tree?  In this Five Minutes with Tony, Tony discusses the tough decision he was forced to make on Christmas morning and the Christmas lesson we can learn from little children.

Christmas, The Happiest and Saddest of Times

Christmas day is fast approaching.  For many people, it is the happiest and most joyful time of the year.  For others, Christmas can be the saddest time of the year.  In this Five Minutes with Tony, Tony gives some helpful advice if you find yourself sad or lonely at Christmas and what you can do to help others that are alone, lonely, or sad at this time of year.

Your Presence is Your Present

As we get older, receiving presents at Christmas isn’t quite as important as the people we have around us.  Family and friends become very important at Christmas time.  There is not a parent alive that wouldn’t trade even the biggest present for having their family together at the holidays.  Sons and daughters, grandkids, and friends, who are living far away are the best Christmas gifts.  In this Five Minutes with Tony, Tony discusses how their presence in your holiday is the best Christmas present you could receive.

In this Five Minutes with Tony, Tony discusses Secular Advent. For those of you who are not familiar with the holiday season, it began several years ago and has grown into the biggest secular holiday of the year. But, it’s not OUR Advent!

A Life of No Regrets

A palliative nurse wrote an article a few years back about the research she had done with the elderly.  The article talked about the five regrets of the dying.  In this Five Minutes with Tony, Tony’s explains how we can all have a life of no regrets. Scripture:   It is not that I have already taken hold of it or have already attained perfect maturity, but I continue my pursuit in hope that I may possess it, since I have indeed been taken possession of by Christ [Jesus].  Brothers, I for my part do not consider myself to have taken possession. Just one thing: forgetting what lies behind but straining forward to what lies ahead, I continue my pursuit toward the goal, the prize of God’s upward calling, in Christ Jesus. –Philippians 3:12:14 NAB For godly sorrow produces a salutary repentance without regret, but worldly sorrow produces death.  2 Corinthians 7:10 Reflection : How do we live a life of no regrets?  What are the top five things we can do to live a life of no regrets?  Is Ton
