Recently, I read something about Dreams and Goals: “When you have Dreams and you have a Journey to reach – stay focused and remember you are who you are. God would not have given you what He gave you if he didn’t think you were the right person for it.”
This is Gods way of telling me that I have the ability to continue my race and pursue my goals and it won’t be long before I reach the stars. I must have faith, however, to believe in my dreams.
God gives each of us gifts and blesses us with the ability to fulfill our Journey in life – but if we fall asleep at the wheel, we will never be able to foresee what could have been. We may never know how valuable our ability is and how it can make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. We may never know our Dream-Ability!

It’s hard to believe that we are already in February. We all know what this month means to us? That’s right – Valentines Day!
Do we actually know how St Valentine came about? How did it become one of the most major holidays in the U.S.
Some may think that it started with the Cupid? I don’t think so. To my surprise St. Valentine has been around since 269 A.D. There is great history in all this, but I’ll just get to the point.
Valentine’s Day, as we see it today, is about Romance, Love, Sweethearts, and perhaps even going to the Chapel of Love and saying those two words that become one and that show the love between two people – “I DO”
I see Valentine’s as little similar to Christmas when the shopping and planning begin all over again. This time, it has a special meaning for couples.
Which brings me to this little story that I thought was so sweet, I was visiting this jewelry store and in walks this older man with a shopping bag, and tells the sales man that he has already done his shopping for his Valentine Sweetheart, and can you believe we were still in January!
My eyes became watery, and all I could think of was – what a lucky lady to have someone who was excited to have done his shopping for the one he Loves. He did it early, on time and did not wait to the last minute. I found that to be a Blessing.
Valentines is when we should reach out and tell that special someone in our life how much they really mean to us, and how blessed we are to have one another and to appreciate each other.
Sure, we women love Roses, Romantic Dinners, Lingerie, Chocolate covered strawberry’s, and just to be pampered on that One Special night, but this is all materialistic.
To me, and I hope to you, it is the words that people share, words full of pure love – this is what we should treasure and hold close to our heart. The rest, and I repeat, is materialistic.
But don’t get me wrong I won’t turn down the gifts. I am not that crazy!
Thought I’d add a little Humor. But seriously Ladies, just like we wonder what kind of special evening our significant other has planned for us, they wonder the same.
You would be surprise how men expect a romantic evening, and please don’t forget their gift. Trust me I know!
I find Valentine’s Day to be very exciting, I enjoy watching everyone at the store looking for that special card with those perfect words.
We know that every Flower shop is busy trying to make those deliveries on time, and the restaurants are preparing for the right setting to add that special romantic touch for every couple.
So with all this said and done I want to say to all you Love Birds: “The way you embrace each other today and especially tonight there is one thing you may want to remember – that Valentines Day does not have to end at midnight.”
Keep that flame burning and Cupid’s arrows flying; continue to embrace each other and tell each other everyday those three special words: “I Love You!”
Have a Blessed Day and Happy Valentines To each and every one of You!
Till next time, support each other and most of all, Respect each other.
From My Heart filled with LOVE:

Happy Holidays to you and your Family.
As the days get closer to Christmas, I stop and wonder: What goes on in everyone’s mind?
People rushing to get holiday shopping done on time and preparing for Christmas Dinner, perhaps holiday party’s with co-workers and exchanging gifts.
I have always enjoyed watching everyone feeling so merry and cheerful when the holidays come around.
It’s funny, because I used to be that person, always wanting to give to my family and even those I didn’t know. I have always felt that if I was going to have a warm Christmas I wanted other families with children to have the same.
This year has been tough for a lot of us, and perhaps there are some of us that don’t know how to deal with it.
There was a time when I was always able to help others with financial relief and did so without hesitation.
Today it is different, I am unable to give as freely as I used to, yet my holidays will be okay. I plan to spend this Holiday Season with Angels and Family.
I ask Jesus Christ to surround me with all his beautiful Angels and with their strong wings to lift me up in spirit, and continue to bring that smile to my face, even when I know times are tough.
I must focus on what the Holidays are about : It’s preparing me for the Birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas Day.
What I am trying to share with you is that no matter how hard things may seem, when it feels like everything is crumbling around you – you must remember that you are not alone.
You are surrounded by Angels and they are lifting you up in Spirit. You can find them all around you if you take the time to see them.
Be thankful for what you have and even for what you don’t have.
I am Thankful for my love for Christ and my Family, and friends that really care. I love you just like Jesus Christ loves me and Jesus loves you too.
So I say to you: Thank You for all you have done for me, and not allowing me to give up my dreams. This alone will make my Holiday brighter.
I hope you spend this Holiday Season with Angels and Family, and may it be merry and cheerful.
May your Holiday Season be warm and full of love, and the Greatest Gift you receive is knowing that God makes the impossible – Possible!
Happy Holidays to you and your Family,
“We walk by Faith and not by Sight”
