Love Refuses to Keep Score

“Love …. does not take into account a wrong suffered.” …I Corinthians 13: 4-5 (NASB)

Have you ever been hurt or wronged by someone?

What a question.

We all have been disappointed and hurt by the mistakes of others.

And so has God.

Sometimes that is weird to think, but God has feelings too. He too feels hurt when we make mistakes.

But God is so loving, and is so good, and is so merciful, and is so quick to forgive.

Create your very own fairy tale: Rapunzla

by HANNA FOX, Age 12

There once was a kingdom named Corona. It was a beautiful island. Inside the walls of Corona the queen was having a baby girl. But the queen was getting really sick. The king could not find a cure for this sickness. He searched every corner of his library. Then he found this tiny book stuffed away. The king looked in the book and he finally found a cure. It was for a fruit which was scarce. Ezra, the awful witch coveted the fruit. So the king took his 5 best men to look for the fruit. They looked for a week before they found the fruit.

Lieutenant Dennis Edward Vacenovsky led a life dedicated to service. He was a teacher and coach at Hernando High School and could have used this to obtain a deferment from being sent to the Vietnam War. His morals led him to voluntarily enter into service of his country.

Dennis and his brother Tommy were born in Binghamton, NY and moved to Masaryktown as young children. Their father Thomas Vacenovsky Sr. worked as a bus driver and eventually became Supervisor of Transportation for the Hernando County Public School District.
