A place to learn, mingle, and share

This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."

Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

..the good humor enjoyed by reading the 'family' comment above - (and understanding it COMPLETELY) rolling eyes laughing

..for the free will to make my own decisions - even including those that ended with me flat on my face - He allowed me that opportunity to grow and learn.

..for the MANY 'do-overs' He gives us every single day -
in our choice of half empty / half full attitudes, our actions and reactions, choice of how we're going to treat people or allow them to treat us, choice of how we spend our time and energy, choice of mood we can embrace at any given moment. While He has a plan for each of us, He still allows us control over much of how our lives unfold - we can alter or change some of the things that are not working out the way we'd hoped - and He supports us in each step along our journey of faith and love. theheart rose

...for the people He's put into my path for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. I've been blessed beyond measure! hug
AND for the many chances I get to spend time with those quality people - such as (shameless plug alert wave ) during the upcoming Indy Fall Camp Out Oct 11-13! Check the Event page (under the 'more' tab on your home page) for details and sign up asap, deadline is 9/15!)

Great topic, Jerry! heart The uplifting threads are why I keep coming back into the forums (when I should be doing other things still on my 'to do' list for today!) shhh wink

I thank God every day for life, living, that His mercies are new every morning, for all that He provides, direction and correction. I thank God that he sent his son Jesus so that all may choose The path of salvation through His ultimate sacrifice of Love.

Wonderful post Mary! This reminds me to be thankful to God EVERYDAY for the "free will" has given ALL of us. And with this free will we are given the opportunity to CHOOSE to be happy. And I thank God for all of you... for these profound posts of gratitude. I am amazed at all the Faith-filled people in CM and what they contribute~
