Joyce Meyer Daily Devotion James 5:12

Today's devotion speaks to me! 

Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned. (James 5:12 NIV)

Be Decisive! 

Indecision is a miserable state to be in and certainly is not a fruit of the simple life. The apostle James said the double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. 

Never making a decision because you're afraid you'll make the wrong one will get you nowhere. How much time do you think we waste when we can't make up our minds? 

We often labor over the choices before us when we just need to make a decision and let it stand. This may be a simple example, but think about it: When you stand in front of your closet in the morning looking at all your clothes, just choose something and put it on. Don't go back and forth until you make yourself late for work! 

Let me encourage you to start making decisions without second-guessing yourself or worrying about the choices you make. Don't be double-minded or wishy-washy because doubting your decisions after you make them will steal the enjoyment from everything you do. Make the best decisions you can and trust God with the results. 

Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, thank You for showing me that indecision doesn't really get me anywhere. Help me to let my "yes" be "yes," and my "no" be "no." I know I can't go wrong when I make decisions the best I can and simply trust You with the results.

Joyce Meyer Daily Devotion; Ephesians 4:23 NIV

to be made new in the attitude of your minds; (Ephesians 4:23 NIV)

Experience a New Beginning 

The Bible is filled with stories about people who experienced new beginnings. Moses became a leader after being a shepherd for 40 years. Paul hated Christ until God renewed him and made him the greatest apostle of all time. 

When we receive Jesus as our Savior, it is the ultimate new beginning. We become new creatures with an opportunity to learn a new way of living. But the first step to experiencing that new life is believing that it's available to you. 

Ephesians 4:23 says we must be constantly renewed in our minds and attitudes. It's easy to read about great people in the Bible and think that you are nothing like them, but when you start to think that, you need to renew your mind right away. 

Choose to think according to God's Word, not how you feel. Receive His love and experience a new beginning. Life will become so much sweeter if you live with an attitude that says "God is completely changing me from the inside out. He's giving me a new beginning and there are greater things ahead." 

Prayer Starter: Lord, I renew my mind in You. I know that You have a new beginning and a calling for me just like you did for Moses and Paul. I receive it today, believing that You can bring it to pass.

Joyce Meyer Daily Devotion, 2 Corinthians 10:3

I loved today's devotion! Some days are just bad days for me, someone disappoints me, annoyed by my job, things may not always go my way and then I find myself in a bad mood. When I'm in a bad mood I try to list all the things I'm grateful for and it usually helps but I often remember to do this hours later lol. So when I read today's devotional I thought this is perfect! Next time I'm in a bad mood I will refer to this devotion! Please enjoy!

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. (2 Corinthians 10:3 NIV)

Your Three Best Weapons 

Through careful strategy and cunning deceit, Satan attempts to wage war against you and keep you in a mindset of defeat. But God has given you spiritual weapons to use against him. Here are the main three spiritual weapons you can use to fight off the enemy: 

1. God's Word: Receive it through preaching, teaching, reading and private Bible study. Continue in the Word until it becomes revelation given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. 

2. Praise: This defeats the devil faster and more efficiently than any other battle plan, but it must be genuine heart-praise, not just lip service or a religious ritual. 

3. Prayer: Prayer is relationship with the Godhead. It is communication with God, asking Him for help or talking with Him about whatever is on your heart. To have an effective prayer life, we must develop an intimate, personal relationship with the Father. Know that He loves you and that He wants to help you. 

There is a war going on, but God is fighting on your side and has given you the weapons you need. Use them to send Satan running! 

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You so much for giving me the spiritual weapons I need to fight my enemy. With Your help, I know that I can win the battle today!

Summertime Chic

Hey Ladies! It's finally summertime! While we love going to the beach, some of us dread what to wear to the beach. Most of us focus on our swimsuit but I think the most important beach accessory is our swimsuit cover-up.  The cover-up is so important because not only can it be worn to the beach/pool but also around town running errands. Below are some hot cover-ups to get you through the summertime:

 These cover-ups can be found at your local H&M or Hope you all have a fabulous summer! XOXO -Angelle

Start The Day Off With The Spirit of Expectancy

Good Morning!!!!

I like to start my day off with a daily devotional reading from Joyce Meyer. Today my reading essentially was about having the spirit of expectancy, hoping for good things to happen in our lives. So, I hope today's devotional spiritually feeds you and is a start to a great day! 

Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you. (Zechariah 9:12 NIV)

What Are You Hoping for? 

I have a question for you: What are you hoping for? What are you expecting in life? Are you looking for something good to happen or are you expecting to be disappointed? 

So many people are feeling hopeless these days. However, Jesus did not die for us to be hopeless. He died so that we could be full of hope. 

The devil wants to steal your hope and he will lie to you. He'll tell you that nothing good can happen in your life or that the things you care about won't last. If you're struggling with a difficult situation, he'll tell you it will never end. But you have to stay full of hope and remember that the devil is a liar. God can change everything! 

Our Father is good, and He has good plans for your life. If you will maintain your hope, especially in the midst of troubled and uncertain times, He has promised you "double for your trouble". So refuse to give up hope. Start expecting God to do something, something good! 

Prayer Starter: Lord, my hope is in You. Satan is a liar and I will not listen to him and lose hope. I expect You to do good things in my life.

Start The Day Off With Love

Good Morning!!!

Love attracts love, love is the main ingredient for supernatural, divine power. Practice love daily by thinking of all your loved ones and express how grateful you are to have them. Then, think about the love of Christ and how faithful and true his undying love is for us. Celebrate the fact that nothing can seperate us from the love of God! Now, take a moment and close your eyes(after reading this whole post lol). Slowly Inhale then exhale and visualize your most perfect dream setting, whether a new house, your wedding, a luxury vacation whatever dream setting you want and picture yourself there with all of the people you love. Really get in the moment, hear them say their favorite lines, hear them say they are proud of you and they love you, feel their hugs, feel the positive energy in the place. After you are finished you should feel the great power of love working in your life. You have now attracted more love into your life and that dream situation. 

Have a great week! 

Blessings to you,

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life ? (Matthew 6:27 NIV)

You Can't Add One Inch to Your Height! 

Worrying does us absolutely no good. It doesn't change one thing, and we waste time by being upset over stuff we can't do anything about, things only God can change. 

The Bible says we can't even add one inch to our height by worrying. Yet, we worry, worry, worry, which gets us nowhere. 

Every time we get really upset, it takes a lot of emotional energy, tires us out, messes with our health, steals our joy, and still doesn't change one thing. We need to stop trying to fix things that only God can fix because the only one who's clapping is the devil, saying, "Ha, ha, ha! Got 'em again!" 

Jesus tells us to "calm down" in John 14:27 and"cheer up" in John 16:33. I think it's a one-two knockout punch to the devil when we do. When you realize you can't fix everything, that calms you down, and when You know that God can, it cheers you up! 

So don't worry. Instead, calm down, cheer up, and send the devil running! 

Prayer Starter: Lord, my worrying really doesn't accomplish anything, so I leave it behind. I'm so thankful that You can fix what I can't. You calm me down and cheer me up!

So true!

My bro Tony placed a dose of truth on my IG timeline today. 

I will like to further say, you can't change anyone but yourself so you should only be worried about yourself. If you can't take any responsibility for the relationship woes in your life then you are a lost cause and bound to have a life riddled with problems and no solutions.

Joyce Meyer Daily Devotion, 1 Corinthians 12:11

Good Morning, 

I read another daily devotion I wanted to share with you today. Enjoy your daily bread.

How to Develop Your Gifts 

People ask me all the time how to discover and develop the gifts God has given them. Here are a few helpful steps that I've discovered: 

1. Focus on the strengths God gave you. Concentrating on your strengths will help you fulfill the calling God has put on your life. 

2. Exercise your gift. Find something you like to do and that you do well, and do it over and over again. Want to know what will happen? You will feel better about yourself because you won't be constantly failing. 

3. Have the courage to be different. Unhappiness comes when you try to be like everyone else rather than embracing the unique person that you are. 

4. Learn to cope with criticism. Have enough confidence in who you are in Christ that you can listen to others and be open to change without feeling you have to agree with their viewpoint or attain their approval. 

God has planted greatness in you. Let today be the beginning of a great adventure as you step into the gifts He's given you. 

Prayer Starter: God, I want to cultivate and develop the gifts You've given me. Give me the courage to follow You and develop the gifts and abilities You've put inside me.

You Are The Prize!

When you understand you're the prize, you won't tolerate being treated like a punishment. If a guy is interested in you his job isn't to figure out why or if you like him the first moment you meet him, his job is to pursue you in a way so that he wins your attention and later your affection.

I hate when I hear stories of guys asking girls questions like why do you like me, what do you like about me the moment they meet a girl. Those questions and girls responding is subliminally sending a message that the girl is pursuing the guy when it should be the other way around. This isn't a job interview, he should ask you what kind of things you like and be interested in getting to know you instead of asking you why do you like him when you don't even know him. Don't forget, you are the prize and everything they do should be to impress you.

Joyce Meyer Daily Devotion, Acts 17:28

Real Love - the Energy of Life! 

"Love is the energy of life. It's what motivates people to get up each day and keep going. It gives life purpose and meaning. 

People often have times in their lives when they believe they are unloved or have no one to love. They develop this mindset because they are looking for fulfillment in ways that seem good at first but often leave them feeling frustrated, disappointed and empty inside. 

Does this ever happen to you? Do you ever look for love and end up feeling unfulfilled? Let me ask you this: What kind of love are you pursuing? 

You may be looking for love, but really, you're looking for God, because He is love. Any love you gain that is disconnected from God is not really love and will leave you feeling unfulfilled. 

The Bible says that in Him we live, move, and have our being. That tells me that without Him, life is not complete. 

Everyone is looking for love, but are you looking for God's love? It's the only love that matters, the only love that lasts, and the only love that fulfills. 

Prayer Starter: Lord, I don't want to spend my life unfulfilled, pursuing love that's not from You. If it's not found in You, it's not real love, because You are love. Today, I find my love in You."

I'm a few days behind in my reading but the reading above is from May 1st and it was so good, I wanted to share! 

Love y'all!

Coconut Oil: Skincare

Let me begin by saying that when I talk about coconut oil, I’m referring to Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil. This stuff is a miracle oil! It’s so good I use it on my face! Yes my face. I have suffered with oily/acne prone skin since I was a teenager. I’ve spent money on dermatologists and high priced face products. Who knew the answer to my skin problems would come in the form of an oil.

I wash my face twice a day with coconut oil. It’s a supper easy process:
Step 1- take a dime size amount of coconut oil and massage it on face for about 1 minute.
Step 2- take a face cloth (I like to use a white one so I can see the dirt) run it under hot water. Wring water from cloth then wipe hot cloth over face to remove the coconut oil from face. I repeat this step until all of the oil is removed.

That’s it! If you suffer from dry skin you should take a small amount of oil and use it as a face moisturizer. Sometimes I use coconut oil to replace lotion when I get out the tub. My skin loves this stuff! Did I mention the smell? You’ll smell delicious with this stuff on.

"Commercial moisturizers contain lots of water, which makes you feel like your skin is being moisturized. But as soon as the water dries, your skin becomes dry again. Also, many commercial brands of moisturizers contain petroleum-based ingredients that can suffocate the skin. In contrast, coconut oil provides deep and real moisture. It helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cell on the skin's surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture.” (huffington post)

Restaurant Review: Tujague's

In case you didn't know I live (born and raised) in New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans is known worldwide for its its no surprise that I'm a foodie ha ha. This year I decided to try new restaurants instead of just going to my favorites. To kick start my "new restaurant experience" I tried Tujague's Restaurant. I give this restaurant 4.5 (out of 5) stars! I really enjoyed the entire experience.

I reviewed the restaurant on 5 categories:

1. Service- the service was superb! Not only did our waitress wait on us but so did other staff
2. Price- I thought the price was pretty reasonable for all the food we had.  Our bill was $107.00 (2 people) BUT we each had a five course meal.
3. Taste- the food was delicious! I had a shrimp  remoulade salad, gumbo, brisket appetizer, BBQ shrimp and banana bread pudding...all of it was good.
4. Location-  Tujague's is located in the heart of the city, the French Quarters. This location is great for both tourists and natives. The only down side about this location is the parking.
5. Ambiance- The restaurant had a very nice and simple atmosphere. White table clothes and candles set the mood. see picture below.

If you're ever in the New Orleans area I  recommend you give Tujague's a try. XOXO -Angelle

Too Good Too Be True

When things are going right I get suspicious, so when I meet a good guy and he likes me I am constantly searching for that "aha gotcha you slimy sucker" moment. I am usually testing him and waiting with such anticipation to catch him in a lie. I cant really enjoy the experience of getting to know him because I am so busy trying to get the experience over with by trying to immediately figure out his game so I dont have to talk to him or invest feelings into him.

Then I remembered awhile back I saw Brene Brown on Super Soul Sunday talking about how we sometimes have a dress rehearsal for tragedy when everything is going right, similar to that age old feeling "too good to be true."

Here is Brene on Katie Couric show.

Dear Ladies

Image courtesy of sscreations /

Ladies I need your opinion, so early 2012 I met a guy. We had great conversation and could talk to each other for hours. We once went to lunch together but other than that no dates, phone conversations, kisses, hugs, nothing romantic. I had a crush on him and I sensed he had a crush on me but it kinda faded once I learned his extremist ideology on certain controversial subjects. However, we stayed in contact, HE WOULD always check in on me periodically via text. Last month he even said "we needed to talk and catch up". He would accuse me of being "Hollywood" and not contacting him, respond to his text etc. lol 

Fast forward to Tuesday, he texts me and does the usual how are you, where have you been, jokes about rappers and entertainers. So on Thurs I was curious to know if my new friend knew Mr. Periodically Check In Guy since they went to the same college. I checked my new friend's Facebook friends list and up came Mr Periodically Check In Guy's profile. His profile pic had him sitting next to a girl in a wedding dress and I immediately debated in my head whether this girl was his wife or sister. After going through his FB profile and hers lol. I can state without a shadow of a doubt that is his new beautiful wife as of June 2013. Looking back we ALWAYS had innocent conversation, like I said nothing romantic happened between us but you would think he would mention he was married or engaged during the mini check ins, how are yous, and what have you been up tos, etc. My question to you is am I justified in being shocked and appalled in finding out he is a newlywed?!? 

Sincerely Shocked,

Eligible Bachelorette

The other day my Pastor gave a lesson on sin. He had 3 men stand on the altar, each holding a ball. One had a 16 pound bowling ball; one had a volleyball that weighed about 10 ounces; and the other a pool ball that weighed around 6 ounces. He assigned each ball a sin, the bowling ball represented murder, the volley ball represented theft, and the pool ball represented a little white lie.  The men dropped the balls they were holding at the same time. Even though each ball weighed a different amount they all hit the floor at the same time. My Pastor used this to demonstrate to us that SIN IS SIN. God looks at all sin the same…murder is not a bigger sin than a little white lie.

If we start to view all sin the same maybe we’ll show more mercy to others. I have never killed anyone but I have told a little white lie. The good thing about this is according to Romans 5:20 “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” Hope this encourages you to show mercy to others. XOXO –Angelle

Water Challenge Update

I was really admiring my skin yesterday and then it hit me, it must be the water or a combination of things including the water. So I decided to share my skin regiment and some helpful water challenge tips. Click Here for previous Water Challenge post


 Image courtesy of Naypong/


My Current Skin Regiment: 

  • I drink between 96 ounces to a gallon of water a day. 
  • I drink hot peach tea with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and honey 2-3 times a week. 
  • I take a whole foods, food based multivitamin daily
  • I take flax seed oil supplement 2-3 times daily with meal.
  • I wash my face twice a day with Vitamin E Body Shop face cleanser for 2mins using my Mia 2 Clarisonic.
  • I use my homemade half ACV, half water solution toner 
  • Then I moisturize with Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream and body shop Vitamin E moisturizer with SPF in the morning or Vitamin E intense moisture cream at night sometimes  I substitute the intense moisture cream for Burt bees sensitive skin moisturizer.

Disclaimer: I'm not recommending my skin care regiment nor products I'm just stating it for full disclosure purposes. I am only recommending you drink more water. 


Some Thing's I Found Helpful :

  • Buy a 32 ounce container and fill it up 4 times throughout the day, that should result in you drinking 128 ounces of water also known as a gallon. 
  • Time is another great tip. You aren't suppose to drink water too fast just so you can get your gallon in lol. Instead have a time target or estimate time for completion. For example  sip on 32 ounces every three hours.  I start drinking my first 32 ounces at 7am and I'm completed by 10:30 am. My second set of 32 ounces usually last me from 10:30am - 1pm. My third set of 32 lasts me from 1 - 3pm. Then I drink my last 32 while I am home usually between 5-9pm at night. 
  • Buy a Brita water pitcher or dispenser. Drinking 8 water bottles a day can be expensive and wasteful! Not to mention how strenuous it is for a single female living in an apartment complex trying to carry and unload a pack of water bottles from her car to her front door lol. Either you can constantly carry a ton of water bottles or you can have an unlimited supply of water and replace your filter every two months for $8 its totally up to you lol

Nothing is impossible -Joyce Meyer

Dear Mr/Ms Hopeless,

I love you and I want to share my daily devotion from Monday with you. It starts with a scripture then a word from Joyce Meyers.

Image courtesy of Evgeni Dinev /

For no word from God will ever fail.” (Luke 1:37 NIV)

Nothing Is Impossible 

People who think positively can see potential in even the most discouraging situations, while those who think negatively are quick to point out problems and limitations. 

This goes beyond the proverbial idea of simply seeing a glass "half full" or "half empty" and extends to actually making decisions and taking actions based on either positive or negative thinking. 

Have you ever noticed how negative thinking blows things out of proportion? Problems start to seem larger and much more difficult than they really are. 

Sometimes, a problem may actually be the natural. And a negative mindset forgets that nothing is impossible to God. 

Meditating on God's Word will rid you of negativity and help you refocus on who God is. A positive mindset based on God's Word knows that nothing is beyond God. He is always present. 

I've trained my brain to believe God and His Word, and I've experienced the power available to me through God when I've trusted Him more than my circumstances. We need to always remember that nothing is impossible with God. 

Prayer Starter: Lord, it's clear to me that I have nothing to gain from a 'glass-half-empty' mindset. Even in impossible situations, I know that You are there. I choose to see the positive side of things as I live in Your Word.

Movie Review: Pompeii

When I got tickets to see the advanced screening of ‘Pompeii’ I was so excited. I learned about the ‘city on fire’ from an archaeology course I took in college.  Imagine my surprise when the movie attendant handed me 3D glasses…who doesn't love movies in 3D?!  

‘Pompeii’ is the story of star crossed lovers trying to outrun an erupting volcano. Overall I give this movie 2.5 (out of 5) stars. My problem with this movie is that everything happened too fast. Relationships were formed too fast, but I did enjoy the eye candy. The main character Milo, played by Kit Harington offered plenty of eye candy.  

Pompeii hits theaters this Friday, February 21, 2014. Will you go see it? XOXO -Angelle

Gift Ideas for Every Occasion

Recently a coworker of mine asked me if he should bring a gift to an engagement party, that question led to an entire discussion on gift etiquette. Below are some gift ideas for different occasions:

Baby’s Christening- I recommend a religious gift (exp. baby first bible or cross jewelry)
New Baby- Get something for the baby, I recommend to get it monogrammed with the Baby’s initials. (exp. Blanket, outfit, bibs)
Engagement Party- Buy something that the couple can use. Must be unisex (exp. His and hers glassware, his and hers towel set, wedding planning book)
Anniversary Party- Since the couple already lives together you should not buy anything for the house, instead get something that will get the couple out the house (exp. Gift card to the movies or their favorite restaurant) 
Graduation Party- I know when I graduated High School and College there was only one thing I wanted…MONEY lol. Make sure to put money in the graduate’s card but you can still give them a thoughtful gift (exp. Planners, monogrammed pens, notebooks and labels)
House Warming- Something for the house (exp. Tool box, a plant, doormat, monogram door wreath, coasters, photo frame)
Dance Recital- Flowers of course lol.

What are some neat gift ideas you have? Do Share. XOXO -Angelle

The Fitness Chronicles: Glutes

I would love to have a more sculpted derriere so I'm going to try this workout I found. I plan to do it twice a week starting Tuesday. I will be sure to measure my results and report back to y'all lol.

If anyone wants to join in on the fun I have included the workout I found online, at

*RPE, rate of perceived exertion, is a measure of your exercise intensity based on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most effort. Adjust speed and incline to reach desired RPE above.

“People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.” - Zig Ziglar

Whatever you feed grows and whatever you starve dies. If you feed your faith the bigger your faith grows,  That's why Apostle Paul says faith comes by hearing.

If we hear a good word on Sunday or get motivated by an inspiring story on Tuesday but watch garbage tv, listen to trashy songs, have everyday problems, hear people complain about life, hear disturbing news, watch celebrities make money, and be consumed with celebrity gossip all the other days of the week we aren't focusing our thoughts and energies into creating our best life. I do all of the above lol however, I'm a strong advocate for balance. Without watching celebrities we wouldn't know the wealth possibilities that we can start to envision for our life. I also don't mind watching reality shows where the rich get richer because they are inspiring me to do the same and watching them encourages me. I just schedule the amount of time I devote to that. In addition, I schedule an amount of time to feed my spirit. I try to meditate, read scripture, read other value adding books, practice visualization, and speak affirmations daily to help keep me focus, in good spirits, and attracting all of my wants and desires.

She's Got Next!

I just can't get enough of my new woman crush Lupita Nyong'o 

"When you play it safe, you’re not expressing the utmost of your human experience.” - @LupitaNyongo"

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is often referred to as the Miracle Oil. I've been using it for different reasons for over a year now and thought others would be interested in learning about its many benefits.  There’s no way I can cover all the benefits of coconut oil in one post, so I decided to do a series on this miracle oil. The series will cover the following topics:

·         Coconut oil for skincare
·         Coconut oil  makeup remover
·         Coconut oil for hair
·         Coconut oil for cooking
·         Coconut oil for overall health

I look forward to sharing what I know about this miracle oil. -Angelle

Ain't No Feeling like Being Free!

I'm really enjoying my Valentine's Day! I hope you all are as well.

The Great Destiny Child once said,  

"Ain't no feeling like being free

When your mind's made up
And your hearts in the right place, yeah
Ain't no feeling like being free
When you've done all you could
But what's misunderstood
(It's all good, it's all good)
Ain't no feeling like being free
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feeling like being free
Cause my mind's made up
And my heart is in the right place, yeah"

And went on to say, 

"I catered to my man now I cater to me... Take me out sometime! 

P.S Agape Love > Eros Love, No matter what your relationship status is.

Single Girl's Guide to Valentine’s Day

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!!! While some are in anticipation of the day, others absolutely dread it. When I was a child I loved Valentine’s Day, I got candy and cards from my classmates. In college I became one of the people who dreaded the day of love. I only didn’t like it because I was single. I remember junior year in college Christina and myself hiding in my car because we didn't want to be seen dateless on Valentine's day ha ha.


Now, I love Valentine’s Day! Yes, I’m single but that’s no reason not to enjoy myself. You see Vday is a day dedicated to love and there are plenty of people I love (family and friends). So I decided to write this guide for single girls who don’t know what to do on Valentine’s Day:

1.       Hangout with your other single friends- You are not the only single person alive, so why not do something fun with your single gals.
2.       Throw a party/Go to a Party- Who doesn’t like a good party?! If none of your friends are throwing a party, you should throw a party…singles only of course.
3.       Watch Romantic Movies – call your best single gal pal over and park on the couch. I recommend ‘Something’s Gotta Give’, great romantic comedy, not your typical sappy love story.
4.       Go on a blind date- Have someone you trust to play matchmaker, who knows you might have a good time.
5.       Treat yourself- I don’t know about you all but I LIKE MYSELF…and I like spending time with myself. Why not treat yourself to that new restaurant you’ve wanted to try or a nice relaxing spa day. You deserve it!
6.       Be thankful! - Be thankful that you are alive with a host of family and friends who love you! Most importantly be thankful that you don’t have to share the remote and can go to sleep in the middle of the bed lol

Remember that Valentine’s Day is all about love…so make sure you tell your loved ones what they mean to you.  What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Do share. XOXO -Angelle

The greatest feeling in this world is to know that you are loved and God loves us so much more than we can comprehend. There is a peace above all understanding once you embrace that love from God. There is also a super natural power that can be activated once we truly embrace Gods love.

"It is the combination of thought and love which forms the irresistible force of the law of attraction"
-Charles Haanel

"There is no greater power in the Universe than the power of love... In fact, some of the great thinkers of the past referred to the law of attraction as the law of love... The greater the love you feel and emit, the greater the power you are harnessing" 
excerpts from The Secret, The Secret Made Simple chapter pg 38

Activate the power of love and watch how your life starts to transform! God is the creator of love and we were made in his image so he wants us to experience love and have divine power to create a life of abundance filled with love or at least that's what I think at this stage in life lol (but I'm serious). Its not always easy to walk in love and feel God's love but if you make the conscious decision to read about love daily and look for examples of love you will attract more love and power into your life.
