      My Thankful Thread

      I saw my friends doing this in years past on Facebook and wanted to do it here this year

      Today I am thankful for Romanos who created Christianity Haven so that we could have a forum to discuss, build friendships, support one another and laugh.

      I am thankful for a very tasty dinner
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Who can disagree with that?

      I'm thankful for the team that we have here and for the awesome work we do. I'm also thankful for our Supporting Members who have supported our site financially. I'm thankful to our whole member base, old and new, for even one post helps CH. Thanks everyone!

      Day 2

      Today I'm thankful for the CH Staff!
      @tango who has been Senior Moderator for ages now and is great at bringing up things that needs to be discussed on the site with the rest of staff. He's fair and isn't quick to dish out any reprimands and that fits with how Romanos wants staff to be.
      @ImaginaryDay2 who left staff but agreed to return to assist when needed. He has great empathy for the members and seriously has all your backs He's not afraid to work hard even though we rarely have any work to do.
      @jsimms435 who has stepped up in bringing forth great conversation which is something that is needed around here. He works hard at getting things done in a timely manner and is highly efficient!
      @Josiah who still needs to remain on staff because I have more issues going on and the more the merrier! He's eager to learn and considers all sides before giving his opinion in our staff threads.

      Thank you, guys for keeping the site going. I'm truly thankful

      Among MANY people and things, I'm thankful for @Lämmchen for her friendship over many years, for her kindness and support WAY back when I was still a teen and in the whirlpool of CF.....Lamm and I joined CF at the same time and she was my first "friend" I ever officially declared there (that was over 12 years ago). I'm thankful to her for inviting me to CH (her timing could not have been more perfect)... and all her friendship, kindness and embrace to me these past two-plus years here at CH.... and for her patience, kindness, and understanding after I came on staff here. There's a huge central theme there, going back a LONG time.

      AND.... she is passionate about this site! She really gives her heart to this community! This isn't a business or forum for her to change minds - it's a ministry. I appreciate that (it's contagious, too).

      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      Day 3

      Today I'm thankful for two long time members who have contributed almost daily!
      @MoreCoffee who creates new lines of conversation across the site and is active in the chatbox seeking to bring creativity with his ideas and responses that livens this place up.
      @psalms 91 who is excellent at befriending our newcomers and making them feel welcome. He sticks up for those who do not know how to voice their opinions and has a passion for God that shows in his love toward neighbors.

      Day 4

      Today I am thankful for ValleyGal who writes mainly in the Private Women's Forum.
      @ValleyGal who is one of my closest friends here on the site and we "talk" daily as I eat breakfast, reading what she has written and responding. She is one of my pillars of support and encouragement and I like being the same for her as we get through this thing called life. I enjoy reading her perspective and voice of reason.

      I am thankful that @Confessional Lutheran is here and for his many interesting comments, posts, and insights. Good chap all around.
