Count Your Blessings



Every year at this time, I reflect on the past year and think about the many blessings in my life. It reminds me of the popular song, “Count Your Blessings” written by Irving Berlin for the 1954 movie White Christmas.bowling-Debbie

If you’re worried and you can’t sleep
Just count your blessings instead of sheep
And you’ll fall asleep
Counting your blessings

This year, CatholicMatch has many blessings to count. We celebrated our 14th anniversary and reached one million registered members. A million people have decided to create an account on our site and trust us enough to give CatholicMatch a try. Its an exciting milestone and a humbling one.

But that’s what we do. We try our best to help single Catholics be in a better position to find their spouses in order to create families. And we feel very blessed to be a part of it all.

The CatholicMatch team is made up of moms and dads, husbands and wives, Catholics and non-Catholics who are so thankful for the blessing of the huge community of people who give us the opportunity to provide for our families and do a job that helps people build happy and holy marriages.

So from the CatholicMatch family we wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. Please know that we are praying for you and please pray for us.

And this Christmas I count you in my blessings and rejoice for the One whom Isaiah called “Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

    Dear God,

    We pray to You to provide continued strength and guidance to our Shepard, Pope Francis. May he sustain his vigilance to help the poor and the needy out of poverty throughout the world for 2014.

    With our gift of faith, we have abundant blessings. And with god in our life, truly embracing him, we actually don’t need to ever feel lonely. I’d say for 2014, surrender “finding our soulmate” to god and if he wishes it to be, he’ll send us our soulmate for life. A blessed new year, everyone 🙂

    I think we should be offered to be on Catholic Match, even if we have economical problems, and can not pay the fee. Blessings

    I would love to have more quiet time and be able to take care of my older mom and find a male friend for company.

    Thank you for all you do and may our Lord bless in the coming year. I haven’t been this excited about anything in a long time, but I think God has a surprise waiting for me. I know when I give him seemingly impossible problems he always finds a solution. That’s what scares me. I just hope the helpmate he puts in my life will be able to help me contain my joy, for I might simply explode. Well, not really, but I’ll probably be speechless. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see, but I know she’s coming and I pray that everyone looking for that special helpmate will never give up.

      True.. there are many “little” blessings that we may sometimes forget about.. and if we can take the time to reflect on those we’ll realize how Rich our lives really are. A Blessed and Joyful Christmas to All.
