Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow:Two Hearts Are Better Than One

In case you weren't aware or hadn't checked your calendar, today, December 21, 2016 marks the first day of winter, also known as, the Winter Solstice. It is also the shortest day and longest night of the year.

So for those of you, like me, who live in the region of the world where gets pretty cold outside during the winter months, that means it's time to stock up on your hot coco with marshmallows, hot apple cider, and your favorite tea with a little, "something special" in it, to keep you warm on the inside.

And while you're at it, make sure you also have your favorite blanket ready. So you can snuggle up in with someone you love and keep each other warm on the outside as well.

Until next time....remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!!

Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow:God Provides

I went to bed early last night and was awakened at exactly midnight hearing this song in my spirit. Then I was led in spirit to get up and share it here as my Inspirational Love Notes message for you today.

I don't know what you're going through or who this is for other than myself. But this much I know for sure. I have been through many trials and tribulations in life that's just part of living. I have had people who swore they loved me fail to actually show it time and time again. Some, if not most, of those same people have also devastatingly disappointed me repeatedly. 

I have had people that I was loyal to, who were in some cases either a romantic  partner or business relationship, that did not return my same level of loyalty. Other times, I've also had people who were supposed to be my friends, that disappeared, stopped calling, and failed to step up or show up when I was going through situations where the support of a true friend would've really mattered most.

I've even had biological family, as well as people I considered as family, because I mistakenly believed we were really that close, to end up being the ones to have my back the least and hurt me the most. And as I get older my personal circle of people I feel close to and can truly trust gets smaller and smaller. 

Yet, through it all, I have never seen a more loyal and truly unconditional demonstration of love and support, nor have I ever had a better Ride or Die partner in life, than I have found in my very personal, intimate, sacred relationship with the Most High.

Regardless of whatever or whoever tries to break me, God just keeps bringing me through, over and out of it. Like the bionic woman the Most High keeps making me stronger, faster, wiser, more resilient, resourceful, creatively abundant, and better than I was before, despite how painful it may have been while going through each experience.

I'd be here writing this forever if I tried to tell you all the challenges I've faced and things God has brought me through. So I'm just gonna end this message by telling you this. No matter how long you've been going through your situation or whatever it is you may need....God Provides.

Ask God....Trust God....Try God today. There is NONE more faithful, loving, loyal, reliable, dependable, consistent, gracious, merciful, compassionate, infallible, powerful, generous, Infinitely Intelligent and wise, superbly supportive, and perfectly able to provide than the great I AM.

Talk about an Inspirational Love Note....listen to this song, God Provides, by Tamela Mann then put whatever you're going through in God's hands. That's all I've been led to say. And So It Is!!! Amen

Until next time....remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!!

Sunday's Food For Thought:The Magic of Christmas is Not Just for Kids

As we countdown these last seven days until Christmas I was wondering....
Do you remember what it felt like when you were a child and used to have a particular toy or thing you really wanted more than anything else in the world to see under the tree on Christmas with your name on it? Remember how it felt to have your little childhood heart set on getting it? Nothing could make you stop thinking about it and believing you would actually get it.

My four year old daughter is in that exact place in her childhood right now. She's totally immersed in the magic of Christmas believing she can have whatever her sweet little heart desires. Nothing can diminish her expectation of receiving what she has made up in her mind that she wants and is set on getting  come Christmas day.

She told me at least two months ago about a special toy she saw an advertisement for and decided she really wants, called a Word Whammer by Leapfrog. It's actually a very good choice of a Christmas wish that she picked because it's an educational toy that will help her further develop and improve her spelling, vocabulary, speech, and communication skills. So it's already been mom approved by me. Lol

But she doesn't know that nor does she really care if I approve of it or not. She's four years old remember. So all she cares about is that this particular toy has become her hearts desire. And she is determined to get it for Christmas no questions asked.  So with absolutely not a shred of doubt in her mind she has kept a tunnel vision focus on getting this toy for Christmas.

For the last two months straight, the Word Whammer has been the first thing she talks about with excitement when she wakes up every morning . She tells me about it all throughout the day as she describes every feature it comes with in great and vivid detail. She also ask me several times a day to pull up the video ad for it on YouTube, or the picture of it on the Walmart or Toys R Us website, so she can see it. 

When I do she is overjoyed with excitement from just watching the kid in the video ad playing with as if she already has her own in her possession. It's also the last thing she thinks about when I'm tucking her in bed at night. She's counting down the days until Christmas so she makes sure to tell me every night how many days are left until she gets her Word Whammer. Lol

It's amazing for me to see the level of focus and ability she has been holding the clear vision of getting this toy that is her only hearts desire for Christmas. She's been believing with unwavering faith that it's already hers. And she is right. Because between you and me, I have already bought it and it's waiting in a safe hiding place for her until Christmas day. Lol

That brings me to the moral of this Inspirational Love Notes message and my reason for sharing this story about my daughter with you. Like her, we too, as adults, would do well to reconnect with the child in us that used to believe in the magic of Christmas.

As you read this article, ask yourself, when is the last time you allowed yourself to just dream big about something your heart really desires. Think about that and then get a vision of what you want to see manifest in your life in the coming new year. Then ask your "Divine Parent", the Most High Eternal Loving God, to fulfill that desire of your heart for you. Next, hold on to the vision of receiving it with laser focus, unwavering faith, and an unshakable belief that it's already's already yours.

Just like my four year old daughter did, go look it up on the Internet, in a magazine, on YouTube or find it in the store that sells it. Become familiar with every intricate detail of it. Think about it every morning when you awake giving thanks in advance to God that it's on the way. Talk about it to your close friends who you know will support you in holding the vision for it. 

Lastly, ponder on it every night as you get in bed and fall asleep until it shows up in your dreams while you slumber throughout the night. My point is, no matter what, just like my daughter, let nothing deter you or diminish your expectation of receiving that thing you so deeply desire in your heart, whatever it may be.  Like a little child, let the magic of Christmas remain in your heart while holding the vision for the desires for your life not just at Christmas time but all year long.

Until next time....Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!!! And as always, remember to keep your hearts and your Love lights on!!!

Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow: Kindness Is Still A Virtue

Someone, in one of the many Facebook groups I'm in, posted this image earlier this week. And I found it worth sharing with you as my Inspirational Love Notes message for tonight on the importance of  being more sensitive and compassionate to one another. 

You never know the full scope of what someone has been going through until you have walked in THEIR shoes. Compassion is always a better approach than having a judgmental, critical, unsupportive, superiority attitude. 

If you can't find anything uplifting and encouraging to say, then perhaps it's better that you say nothing at all. If the most positive thing you can offer is to pray with or for the person sometimes that can be just as helpful as an encouraging word. But it's definitely better than offering critical comments or a negative opinion with a judgmental undertone attached to it. 

Remember...everybody is either coming out of, going through, overcoming or just on the other side of making a comeback from something....including you. The only difference is that some people are better at hiding and disguising it than other's. Yet everyone deserves to feel that whatever they are going through is validated and respected. Be kind to one another. No one likes feeling judged or invalidated. Especially when they are already hurting while working through their situation.

This is just a little "Something To Tuck Under Your Pillow" to ponder as you fall asleep tonight. Until next time....remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on. ~ Anna MsPoet Hendricks - Your Inspirational Goddess of Love

Sunday's Food For Thought:A December to Remember

So here we are....December. The final month of the year. The month that also brings with it the biggest holiday season of the year and all the increased levels of stress and anxiety that comes along with it as well. So for my Inspirational Love Notes, Sunday's Food For Thought message for you this week I thought I'd suggest a few ways you can make this a December to Remember. 

The first way you can make this a more pleasurable and memorable final month of the year, is by not putting so much focus on the commercialism built up around Christmas. Instead, try putting more emphasis on making your new year start off with you feeling good. And the way to do that is by making choices now that will make your future self happy.

So just what do I mean by that? are a few examples of how you can make choices now that will make your future self happy:

1.) Don't over spend on gifts you really can't afford and will have to face the debt you created later. Your future self will be so happy that you made wise financial choices now that will make life and your bank account much better off for you later.

2.) Don't try to buy gifts for everyone in the family and your friendship circle, the postman, the neighbor next door and co-workers too. That's absurd!!! This year, try only buying for the children in your family who are under 18 years old instead. Or even younger than that if you can get away with it. The adults should understand and be supportive of putting the children first and making it more about them.  Which brings me to my next suggestion.

3.) Be honest with yourself and others about what you can or cannot afford to do. If you are not in a financial position to buy gifts for everyone, or anyone this for that matter, don't be in denial about it. Don't spend money you really do not have just to avoid feeling embarrassed or pressured by family and friends.

Your future self will respect you for being true to yourself and your financial ability at the time that will support your financial situation later by living within your means. 

4.)  Don't make plans to go out of your way, especially if that means traveling out of town, to spend the holiday season with people who do not make you feel good about yourself when you're around them. Even if it is family(and more often than not it is) and it's tradition that you go home every year it just not worth putting yourself through the unnecessary pain. Forcing yourself to spend the holiday season with people who only make you feel depressed and put down rather than jolly, celebrated and loved does not serve you well.

As an adult you have a right to start your own holiday tradition. And your future self will appreciate and love you more for honoring yourself by no longer allowing yourself to spend the holiday season with people who don't make you feel loved, lovable, or loving. If going around certain family members and friends only brings you down instead of lift you up I say you owe it to yourself to make other plans this year with people who make you feel good about being you.  

5.) Get plenty of rest and don't over eat. December brings the holiday season where we are surrounded by the irresistible aroma's of our favorite sweets like cakes, pies, cookies and other baked goodies. We're also exposed to more than our fair share of foods that are fun to eat during this time of year but are loaded with sugar and high in fat. 

When we over indulge in them we enjoy it in the moment but our bodies pay for it later. So this year, make a conscious choice to eat your favorite holiday foods in moderation. Your body will thank you for doing so later. 

So those are a few suggestions I hope you will find helpful, should you take heed to them, that will make your future self happy after the holiday season has come and gone. But the best suggestion I can offer you that will make this a December to remember is that, whatever gifts you do give, whatever meals and sweet treats you cook, don't forget the real reason for the season. Let all you do this holiday season be done with a spirit of Love.

Until next time....have a wonderful holiday season. And remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!!

Sunday's Food For Thought: He Who Holds My Future (Poem)

I can't control what goes on 
outside my door....
I can't control between
the rich and poor....
who pays less taxes and who pays more.

I can't control the attitudes, opinions,
and behavior of co-workers,
neighbors, family and friends....
And I certainly can't control  if life
as we know it in our country
will soon come to an end.

Yet, what I can control is 
my own state of mind....
I can control if I 
am critical, judgmental, and mean,
Or respectful, peaceful, and kind.

I can control whether or not,
I live in worry, anxiety, and fear,
Or walk by faith and not 
by sight....

I can choose to keep promoting
peace and harmony,
And let love be my guiding light....

I can also control my prayers,
And keep trusting God to be my protector
when I lay down to sleep at night.

No I can't control the future,
but I can surrender my future into
 God's hands....
And I can trust that God's divine
plans for me,
will always succeed over man's.

Dedicated to all those who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt, and anxiety about your personal future and the future of our great country. I invite you and hopefully through this poem have inspired you, to let your faith in God be greater than your fears of the world. And no matter what continue to practice peace and love.

Until next time....remember to keep your heart open and let your LOVE light shine!!!

Sunday's Food For Thought: Dream Catcher (Poem)

My dreams are mine alone
both new and old....

They are desires of my heart
I long to behold....

Yet my dreams are no longer
just dreams to grow cold....

My beautiful, precious dreams
have now also become my goals.

So help me God to remember
whether my dreams are big or small....

Always keep an open heart
as my net to catch them all.

This is just a short, yet affirmative, poem from my personal dream journal. I wanted to share it in hopes that it may be an empowering source of inspiration to you as it is for me. 

Until next time....remember to keep your heart open and your LOVE light on!!!
