Sunday's Food For Thought: Loyal To Love...Loyal To God (Poem)


Oh Most High God,
there is none like you....none above,
or before you in all the heaven's
or this physical land
Your Holy Spirit lives forever,
your perfect love only expands

Your heart is so generous
in its giving,
like a river of abundance
that never ends
Your compassion, grace, 
and mercy you never
fail to lend

Your love is like no other,
there is no place, space, or time
it cannot transcend
There is no problem you cannot 
solve...
No broken heart your love
 cannot mend

Why you're so good to me
my human mind may never fully
understand....my human intellect 
may never know
Yet I'm so deeply grateful Lord,
for the loving ways you gently
mold me, shape me, 
help me to evolve and grow

You are my first true love...
my most intimate life partner,
as a matter of fact
I have studied your word
and your ways since my youth,
and still today I proudly tell
all who are willing to listen, 
of your mighty wonderful acts

As long as you allow me to,
I will pour out my heart
and love to you
My poems will be my songs of praise
to say thanks for being 
so faithful and true

I will forever boldly tell
all who are willing to hear,
of all the countless reasons
I remain so loyal to thee
I am so deeply grateful Lord,
for your high favor, constant love,
and generosity....
That all my life you have 
allowed consistently
to follow after me



This is a poem from my personal gratitude journal to God. It is one of my many private love notes I love to write to the Most High, my Source, Substance, and Supply to give thanks for my wealth of creative and abundant talents, gifts and blessings in my life. Today I share it with you as my Inspirational Love Notes message for today.  I hope that it will touch your heart and soul in a way that inspires you to draw nearer to God in your own unique way as well.

No matter what you're going through...talk to God about it. He hears every prayer and answers always in a divinely ordered and perfect way. May this message serve you well as your Sunday Food For Thought to carry you through your week. 

Until next time....remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!! ~ Your Inspirational Goddess of Love - Anna MsPoet Hendricks

Sunday's Food For Thought: Leaving A Legacy of Love




There is a famous quote by, essayist, poet, and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau that says, "When it comes time to die, let us not discover that we have never lived." I really like this train of thought. I also agree with the philosophy of it as well. However, I'd like to add my personal philosophy and creed for life to it by saying, when it comes to living, never let us reach the point of our life being over and discover we have never truly loved. 

In the world we live in today of social media that, in my opinion, does more harm than good to the nature of our relationships by promoting more separation than it does to encourage us to connect on a profound level beyond the superficiality and surface level of a persons public persona, it's difficult to really get to know anyone anymore. Added to that is the new form of communication of texting rather than calling to have a more in depth conversation. 

Then there's the dating scene where people's "representative" shows up rather than allowing you to get to know their authentic self. And, more times than not, this results with you falling in love with the person you "thought" they were only to be faced with the overwhelmingly painful and disappointing shock of discovering who they really are six months to a year later when all the mask finally come off the person they really are begins to show. 

As if that isn't enough to make you run from the thought of being in a relationship and the L word, there is the loss of beautiful dating rituals like chivalry that, for the most part these days, is either hard to still find or is virtually dead. With all these changes to relationships in the world we live in today it's no wonder so many people have pretty much resolved to just give up on love. But to give up on love is not only counter intuitive, it goes against the very nature of our soul and inner being.

We are created to have relationships and deep bonds with one another not remain isolated and alone. No matter how much people put on fronts, facades and try to deny it, truth is, deep down the thing we all have in common is that no one...not one single person....really wants to be alone. No matter how accomplished in your career and other area's of life you may be successful in, life is still so much sweeter with someone special to share it with who truly loves you , supports you, appreciates you, cherishes you, and inspires you to be the best version of yourself you can be.

True, we've all had bad breaks, disappointing, and painful relationship experiences where we have loved hard and still things didn't work out as we had hoped, intended, or planned. Let's face it, finding true love is not easy and maintaining it is even harder. It takes work and commitment from both partner's involved in order for love to continue to grow, blossom and last. Yes, a life with love will definitely have some thorns but life without love will have no roses. I don't know about you...but I love roses. They make the whole room more beautiful and filled with their sweet aroma that automatically puts me in a better mood. Having true love in your life has the same effect.

There's a song I love by a rapper named Fabolous called, Make Me Better, that features R&B singer Ne Yo on the hook that says, I'm a movement by myself but I'm a force when we're together."  The overall message of the song is that he's fully aware that on his own as a single man, he's incredibly successful, accomplished, strong and confident. But with his woman by his side truly loving him, supporting him and having his back...together they are a force to be reckoned with and nothing is impossible for them to achieve. That's what love does for us all and it's why I am a huge fan of this song. Because it totally supports my own personal philosophy in life and the moral of my message here today. 

As a single person myself, I too am fully aware of my strengths, my talents, my area's of assets and where I still have room to grow. I've gone after my dreams, at times, with fierce tenacity, fortitude, and perseverance. And for the most part I've accomplished many of the things that, when I took the time to really focus with a made up mind, I really wanted to achieve. Still, nothing will make my life feel as successful, when I come to the point of making my transition from this physical body and world, than to look back and see that I have truly loved and experienced true love in return. 

You see, my ultimate goal in life is not to leave a legacy of money, fortune, notoriety or fame. My biggest, deepest, most meaningful and most important aspiration, goal, and dream in life is to make my exit from this life leaving a legacy of love. To fail at accomplishing that goal would make me feel like I have not truly lived the life I set out to or was born to do at all. Living a life rich in love is the core value and motivation that drives me and inspires me most. In fact, my dream to leave a legacy of love is more than just a dream...it is a deep inner calling within me. It is also the very thing that inspired me to use my talent and passion of creative writing to create this blog as a platform for sharing my inspirational messages of love with you every day this way.

It is my sincere hope, intention, and prayer that by sharing my Inspirational Love Notes messages with you like this, I will not only fulfill my dream to leave a legacy of love upon this earth, but also help awaken the place in other's where love eternally resides and abides in us all. Additionally, my intention for doing this is to inspire you to never give up on love as well. After all, it is the life force energy from which we were all created and the purest, truest nature of our very being. So in all you set out to accomplish in life make sure you leave you room for love. To do otherwise is to have missed out on the sweetest part of life over all.

Until next time....Remember to keep your hearts open and your LOVE light on! ~ Anna MsPoet Hendricks - Your Inspirational Goddess of Love

Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow: Be Still And Know...


Hello again beloveds,

How was your day? You know, Wednesday's are called "hump day" for a reason. And if your day was anything like mine, depending on what side of the globe you're reading this from, you're probably just glad it's over now. 

I woke up today with so much weighing on my heart and mind. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't seem to pull it together. And I ended up having a pretty emotional, energy all over the place, difficulty finding my focus, feeling so out of balance kinda day.  

But at the end of the day, after putting my daughter to bed, I finally had a moment to myself. So I used that time to sit down and do my journal writing and have my quality quiet time with God as I do every night. And rather than venting to God about all the complaints I had about things gone wrong or not yet going as I would like, I chose instead to express gratitude for all the things that God has already worked out for me. 

I chose instead to write down in my gratitude journal all the things I could think of that I really appreciated and recognized as blessings that happened throughout my day despite how my day began. And when I finished writing to God my gratitude list instead of my list of complaints I heard this:

"Be still and know that I AM God.....
Be still and know that I AM your true Source....
Be still and know that I AM your true Substance.....
Be still and know that I AM your true Supplier....
Be still and know that I AM your true Supply.....

Be still and know that I AM your true Provider....
Be still and know that I AM your true Peace.....
Be still and know that I AM your true Protector....
Be still and know that I AM your true Prosperity....
Be still and know that I AM the answer and fulfillment
of all your Prayers....

Be still and know that I AM with you....
Be still and know that I AM for you....
Be still and know how much I Love you....
Be still and know how infinitely much you mean to me....

Be still and know that I AM yours and you beloved
will eternally be mine....
Be still and know I will NEVER leave you....
Be still and know I will NEVER forsake you....
Be still and know I will NEVER abandon you....

Be still and know through it all I will always be there....
Be still and know I AM working all things together 
for your good....
Be still and know...
Be still and know....
Be still and know.....All is well."

And after hearing that and writing it down I simply closed my journal and said....Wow....Thank you God!!!

Just a little "Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow" and ponder as you fall asleep tonight.

Until next time...Remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!! Yours Inspirational Goddess of Love ~ Anna MsPoet Hendricks

Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow

I wish you may....I wish you might
Go to sleep in peace tonight

Leave all your worries in God's hands
And trust He has a master plan

Then in the morning upon sunrise
As you take your first breath and
open your eyes
Take a few minutes to kneel and
say....
All to thee I surrender today,
May your perfect will be done God
In your time....and your way.


Just a little "Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow" to ponder as you fall asleep tonight.

Sunday's Food For Thought:Let Go and Let God - A Poem of Serenity and Surrender


Dear God,

Help me to surrender all my hearts desires
into you loving hands
Help me to trust in the perfection of your 
divinely orchestrated plan

Sweet serenity in you Lord,
is what I most yearn
So unto you I surrender
my daily worries, frustrations, 
And worldly concerns

That in exchange you may
fill my mind and heart,
with your perfect peace
Causing every single doubt
I have in me to cease

Help me remember Lord,
You are my true Source, substance,
and supply
Abundant and generous is your 
giving to me from your bountiful
well that never runs dry


This poem is dedicated to anyone who is or has been praying for something, worrying about something, pushing against something, trying to control something that is beyond your human power and control. If any of these descriptions sounds like you and your approach to whatever you've been going through and after all your efforts you still haven't figured out how to make it work out the way you want it to. Perhaps it's time to take a different approach. Let Go and Let God do for you what sometimes only he can. 

Until next time....Remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!! Yours truly ~Anna MsPoet Hendricks - Your Inspirational Goddess of Love

Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow: Never Underestimate The Power of God


Hello again beloveds! Can we talk candidly tonight?

Have you ever shared an idea of something you were seriously thinking about doing with someone close to you and they boldly told you they don't believe you're capable of doing it?

It really irritates me when people underestimate me. I find it really annoying when people take it upon themselves to tell me what they think I cannot do based on their limited thinking and perception of me.

I'm sure you have experienced this at some point before in your life as well. Right? And well...let's just admit it. It usually happens most often with people who have known you the longest, like family and close friends. For some strange reason they think because they've known you your whole life, or the better part of it, that they also know your capabilities best...even better than you.

So when you express something you're genuinely interested in doing, that in order to accomplish it would mean stepping outside the proverbial box they have put you in and kept you in your entire life, they seem to find it their place to boldly tell you they don't believe you can do it.

But truth is, no one knows you better than your Creator. No one knows what you are capable of doing or not better than God...your true Source. So when people tell me what they believe I can't do or accomplish it really irritates me. Because in my mind, when you underestimate me you are also underestimating my creator, the Most High God, that made me. How so?


Because God is my source and my strength. He is the one who has instilled in me the ability to do the things I am very well capable of doing. It is he who gives me the power to accomplish the things I set out to pursue and do. And the older I get, God's opinion is increasingly becoming the only one that really matters to me regarding what I'm able to accomplish or not.

The same is true for you too. God is your true source also. So let his opinion of what you're capable of doing be the only one that ultimately matters at the end of the day to you. Don't allow other people's limited perception of you to cause you to limit yourself. Don't hold back or back down from pursuing something God put in your heart and spirit to do just because the peanut gallery doesn't believe you can do it.

That being said, if there is something God has put in your heart to do, first of all it may be best to keep it to yourself for awhile until He works out at least most of the details for you. Also, everyone is not going to be on your same spiritual level of understanding and therefore will not be able to share you same level of faith about it as you or in you. Unfortunately, this means sometimes we have to walk alone for awhile in order to get where God is taking us.

Secondly, God gave
 you the vision not your family and friends. So although it does feel good to have the support and blessing of family and friends when your pursuing a desired dream or aspiration, they can't see the vision for it the way you can because God gave the vision to you not them. So they most likely won't get it the way you do or share your same level of enthusiasm about it as well. When this happens try not to take it personal.

Lastly, if you do decide to share your dream, aspirations, or plans with them and they tell you they don't believe, for whatever reason, you can accomplish what you have shared with them you have received in your heart to pursue, your best response to them should simply be the following quote from Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

This is just a little Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow as you fall asleep tonight.

Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow:A Prayer for Mother's


Dear Mom,
On countless occasions you have proven the words and sentiment of the quote taken from the poster attached to be true. But tonight it is the exact opposite.Tonight all your children, including myself, are thinking about and praying for you. I pray that God protects and heals you like only He can do. May He turn your situation around and make you brand new. I love you very much mom and I know you love me too. And So It Is!

I know Mother's Day was a few months ago but tonight my mom is weighing heavy on my heart and mind. You see, my mom is a very strong woman with a big beautiful heart. But she has been experiencing a health challenge that has been progressing and, as of this week, has her in the hospital. Reasonably so, it is a situation that is causing deep concern for myself and my family at this time.

I love my mom very much and it hurts me to see her experiencing what she's going through. However, I am a firm believer that prayer is the most powerful weapon you can use when faced with any trial or challenge in life, including physical ailments and health concerns.

In fact, I believe in the power of prayer so strongly that when done in multiples of two or more joining together, prayer can be the most effective remedy for any health condition and even produce miracles turning the situation around. With this in mind, prayer can be the best gift you can give to a love one in need of healing or any concern they may have.

So tonight let's stand together and band together in prayer for our love ones in need of a healing, especially if you have a mom or are a mom in need of prayer now.

Post a prayer in the comment section below that you would like me to stand in agreement with you on for your mom, yourself or loved one. And I ask that you stand in agreement with me as well on the prayer I included in the opening of this message for my mom too. Then let's trust God together for a miracle to happen for us all.

Until next time...Remember to keep your hearts open and your Love light on!!! ~ Yours truly, Anna MsPoet Hendricks- Your Inspirational Goddess of Love
