FIRE!!!


EEKkk!!!
10646818_443755702429473_3854965101946672220_n
There was a massive fire only a street away from our house! It was super scary!!! It was started by a bad power-line. The flames ran up the side of the mountain and on to the bluff we live… It was defiantly life changing… Fear is powerful, it is brain numbing too at times… I rarely have faced a situation where I lost the power to think. I was mentally and physically frozen for a few minuets. So I prayed… Because that is what I do when I know not what to do, I ask God. And then I made mental notes of where the animals were, where what I needed to save was… I was faced with the reality. It is really interesting what really goes though your mind when faced with the question- There is a fire, what is the one thing you save? If the fire reached us, I would loose so many items, some collectors, none of them as important as the my family and pets… The first thing I thought of, was I have no pet carrier for the cats, what will I do with them? Let them outside to fend for themselves if it comes to it, animals are smart and they have instincts would they make it? No… I’ll try and wrap them in a towel put them in the car hope I don’t drop them on the way down… If I must I will… I told myself Then I quickly found my dog leash, and got her downstairs. (I live on a second story with stairs on the outside.) I kept a close eye on the fire. I have to say the Firemen were fast, brave and awesome! The news said we had only seven fire trucks, but I counted about thirty-three of all types.. There was even helicopters working hard to put the fire out!

I was about to pack up and get us all of us out of the house but then I looked over to the empty field next door and saw about ten deer peacefully eating grass and sleeping. After that I felt peace and I knew we would be safe. Just then the wind shifted and instead of blowing north it stated to blow west… Which was good! Soon after that They had the fire out near the homes, but the fire moved fast west… The poor firemen worked well into the night and into the next morning to get the massive fire out.

We were so blessed not to have any homes or people hurt in our small town. The firemen did an awesome job! God is so good! Sometimes still when I see smoke I quickly go over the emergency list I have prepared in my mind, what I need to do etc as i it were a natural reaction… Fear is a funny thing and very powerful… This whole thing was super scary but a great lesson of faith and a real test. One which I am glad we didn’t have to take!

Hurry Read Quick!!!


Hello! ^_^     (Happy smile)

  How are you my  dear readers? Just jump right in….   So I told you  last time I wrote  that I was working on preparing “God Supplies and Miracles Still Happen” for Global Publishing… Well I  finally  did it!!! I prepared two  paper backs  books 38 pages each, and one e-book..  I did away with the coil bound version.. I know  a lot pf people liked it. However the pages got caught and tore to easy… Out of the two types I had before it was the worst quality… But  for peopel who like larger font, This i created  an 8.×5    I ordered that and the much improved  6×9.  I had before… They looked awesome! Other then some formatting errors and  small  typos… All in which I fixed and have now updated…  They rocked! I was super pleased with both!  I am so so picky….. But – This will be the final updates…  

    ~~~~And look ~~~~

congrats  book

Here is the e-mail they sent me about the books… Now- all I have to do is click yes, and then It is a matter of  weeks,  till I find out they say yes.. (I am standing in Faith they will)  I followed all the rules and requirements.  I am quite sacred actually….  When this goes through   anyone who wants, will have a little insight into my personal life and walk of faith.. It makes me more scared and excited to finish the main book which I have been working on again.  The e-book could be approved any day now, tho I think the print books look way better.. I am excited!

Also There happens to  be a book sale!!!

Updates Finally!


Hello dear readers,

I finally got around to editing the links and my work page! Whew… It’s a pain to do, I’m not entirely happy with it. But my coding skills are limited… @.@ Anyways I added  a few books I am working on. Normally I would do a full detailed progress report with lots of fun little  details. But I am taking care of my nephew this week, he is currently  occupying his self with the movie Frozen… His favorite character is Olaf of course…  One of Mine too. 😛   Great Movie you should see it….

olaf

 So I have to keep this short.. 

Some of my books are on hold, oddly enough all my fictions.. Due to a past virus I had my  updated versions were  deleted from my laptop. However I was smart and backed them up on my External Hard drive…  The bad news is, since the move I can not find the power cord to it…  I had kept them together but somehow the  cord has vanished…  I however was smart enough to back up my faith based books in 2 other places. So I am currently working on  those when Time permits..  Those being:  “Miracles Still Happen Today”, “Deeply Rooted In Him”,  and “Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments”.  The latter being a book I  was able to compile really quickly…    I was not gonna announce it, I was gonna leave it as a surprise. But since They are all coming along so nicely I couldn’t help but share my Joy.  Although I seem to be busier then usual, and i have a small desk…  I am  doing a lot better with staying focused and writing more often then I used to.

I long so much to finish them as soon as possible, and I get so stressed when I want to write and can’t. However Life is precious and people are too. So  I tend to choose  experiences and people over time alone writing if presented the option.  God’s timing is perfect  so I try not to get mad at myself  for not being done yet. I want them to be perfect… Well as perfect as I can be and I am looking for publishers on two of the three books too… Tho I will probably self publish also…. I want to follow God’s will.. I am really pleased with how “God Supplies and Miracles  Happen” Turned out!   You need adobe reader for the e-book.. I’m debating paying the money to get it on Amazon, Nook and ibooks….  What do you think? Should I? And  I adore how the print book turned out… You should totally check that out.  http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27

Well that is it for  now…

Lots of Love, God Bless you today and always!

Merry Cristmas And Happy New Year! 2013


 I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! And A Blessed New Year!!!

 I was not sure where to start, I kept getting sidetracked with  life. I didn’t have time to make an image for you……

Here I go…

This is my favored time of year for many reasons Such as: The weather and the fact that I love the holiday season.  Thanksgiving through New Year’s… All because of: the giving, sharing, thankfulness, anticipation of new, beginnings, joy, and so much more in the air. I love the lights, the trees, the food, and most of all the family you generally get to spend time with. Family,  close friends and relatives.. (Usually)

Sadly though, this time of year brings stress, anger, and loneliness to a lot of people. This is the first year in a  a couple of years I have not felt so lost in emotions…. We all worry about if we have enough time to do what we want to do, do we have enough money, will our friends and families enjoy our efforts. And then there are those of us who do not have the pleasure of having people in our lives to share this time with and it brings out anger, resentment, and deepens the loneliness and pain. I know this all too well over the past few years for sure. They have been hard… I barely celebrated. But there is something really special. No matter what every Christmas Eve.. I get filled with this amazing peace and my heart fills with unexplainable thankfulness and all. I find myself staring at the Christmas tree and or lights for hours not thinking anything just in awe… It all started when I awoke from the coma in 1997 Just 2 days before Christmas… Maybe because of the many close encounters with death I am more sensitive to the holidays… This year it wasn’t my closeness with death that was faced. I lost my oldest brother to cancer…. But then in November my youngest sister Got married…. Such a wide variety of emotions….  I know for many this was a very hard year, but many of us have been blessed despite the troubles… Such as my parents finding a house after almost 4 years of searching… It never amazes me what God can do….. I know next year I and many others, feel it will be a year of closure and togetherness.. I am looking forward to that tho I feel the past few years have gone by way to fast… I hope to share some good things with you in the future tho. Like some books in the next year!!!

 I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! It is not about the Receiving, it’s about the joy of togetherness, the Giving of love and companionship… So many I know have been blessed with wonderful mates while others are still alone.. Our time will come singles! God’s timing is perfect and He or she will be exactly what we need… And more then we could ever want!!

This was supposed to be a sweet note of love, sorry I went on…   I pray if you don’t know Jesus yet you take the opportunity to ask into your heart tonight…  Don’t waste time waiting for the right moment or to be perfect. He loves you as you are and there is no better timing then now…  Having a relationship with Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit is the best Gift I could share with anyone… God after all gave the best Gift Jesus… And that is what Christmas is all About… Celebrating his Birth, His life, and His Death so that we may be free of the chains of sin and be blessed with Eternal life!!!   It’s easy just read this out loud.

“Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge I need you. (You do need Him) I welcome you Jesus into my heart, for you are the way and the truth and the light. (John 14:6)  Please forgive me of my sins and be a part of my life form now on.. Thank you Amen”       Now go tell  someone what you did.

John 10:10

The devil comes to steal form you, to Kill you, and to Destroy you, but I come to bring you life and to bring it Abundantly.

                                                           You are Loved,

Moving again…. Yikes…


Oh My I have so much to say, where do I start….

63150_510748232325343_1217082266_n

Yep,  I am in the process of moving again….  This makes the 6th move since I left for collage..  Oh my!!! six moves…  Wow…   >.< I am so ready  to be stable… I highly doubt this move will be my last move… I  am moving  from my the small house I am living in, to a  apartment about  an hour from where I am now..  I was dragging my feet on the move… Not wanting to  go… Even tho the move will open many  doors for me…  But  I changed my mind when I had a visit from the police a few days ago….

Yes the police…. I was doing my normal lazy  day   things, thinking how boring   the day was…  When I heard  someone passionately  knocking on my door.  My mind raced wondering whom could it be, as I hurriedly approached the door. The last thing I expected was to find a police officer  gun and teaser out… I  jumped  back in shock, holding tight to my  great Danes collar…  “Oh you do have a big dog, good.” He said..   “Yes I do.”  I replied at a loss for words… “We chased a man Thur your back yard,  do I have permission to  search  for him.” he asked. then asking  if I knew the man they were looking for.. I said no and  lead him though my house to the back yard… opening the doors since both his hands were full…   There were  four other police men and two state troopers.  Never again will I complain about being board. I was tense the rest of the day and my dog has been on edge too.. Lets just say I’m well ready to move now….  I do not know if they caught him or not. I sure hope so…….

The very next day I find out my move date has been pushed up. I  have 2 weeks, to pack and be ready.. Not hard.. I never really unpacked….   Moving is in my blood it seems… I just hoped with all my heart I’d be moving  to  get married, not to just move…..

It has been a hard  few moths.. My big brother passed away  the end of may….   I’m still mourning his loss in my future. We were not super close but, he was my hero. I am glad I still have my other brother  still..  He has recently re-married. Which is joyful occasion in the hard times my family has been having…  More good news my baby sister is getting married in Nov.. I am thrilled for her. I am going to go see her and some other  friends in October and of course stay for the wedding…    And even better news my parents finally, after three years, found a house to buy. I am so happy for them!!! I truly am!!!  God keeps His word.!!!

My new place has a new refrigerator, if you haven’t spoken with me, mine has been  bad for a while and I could not afford a new one. God has answered most my prayers….  He is still working on others….  I know I can count on Him tho.. He never lets me down.

As for my work, I am writing a lot more,  and will have even more free time to write at my new place.  I will be able to text again, if I choose to get a new cellphone…   I am  in the process of editing my blogs with the help of a friend whom I am paying . I  want to better represent my work on my blogs. However when I write my blogs I  hardly edit them due to lack of time.. I am trying to  change that.

I have been on maplestory and wartune a lot in the mornings and at night when I have time to spare… My energy hasn’t been much at all and I  feel spread thin…  I have been very sharp with people and my first reactions have been poor unlike my  real thoughts and feelings…. I am ashamed of them…   I have hurt a dear friend, but on a good note I am leaning to voice my  opinions more, and my feelings, instead of  being just a peacemaker… I don’t know  if its  worth it or not, but I want to have the passion for life I once had. I am tired of just drifting and  pleasing others only.. I don’t know why I keep getting lost in doing so.. But I am working on my  work goals now… And I will stick to it.  Please watch me, encourage me, and support me on my endeavor with prayer…

Please, do something silly to make yourself smile, and laugh. It is so important to remember to  smile, Life is hard, we have to  find  some joy in it it…   Surprise a  friend with a gift,   do something special for your self. You are worth it.. Do not let anyone  determine who you are. Only you control your thoughts and actions… Take responsibility  for them and don’t have regrets…

Well I think that about covers it all in a summery….  I will check back in with you  after Sep 3rd  once I’m moved…

God bless you today and always, and I pray he keeps you all safe…  ~hugs~

Another Short Story Published.


Hello New and Old readers,

I am so happy.  A few weeks ago I finally finished my short summery / preview for my book to come.

God Supplies & Miracles Happen  Cover

Once completely Brain Dead; Two comas; Three open heart surgeries; Third person in the world to have her heart completely rebuilt; Three strokes; plus so much more. Yet Alive Strong, and still living life Abundantly!  She’s one of a Kind, and lives to serve God, standing on His word – the Bible.

 http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27 It is free to download. In Pdf and Epub ( for nook and other e readers)  format

 I am so excited to share this with you all for free. There was a scare; I thought I almost lost it. I had accidentally deleted the project and had trouble re-submitting the work. I contacted them for help, and well…  They didn’t help at all. I figured out there was some hidden formatting in my document when I edited it and had to copy just text and re-do all the prior enhancements. Such as: Italics, bold, spaces, headers, and footers..  You need to basically submit an almost clear format free project…  Make sure, if you plan on using Lulu.com, you read the info on how your format should be… And does a test run…  It is also really easy to edit your work…   I really want to share  This story with you. The book has been  hard to write, very emotional.. But it is getting done..    I  Pray you all like it.!!! Thanks!!! Have a great weekend!!!

Have a set goal  do your best and allow for unexpected bumps in the road, because they will happen, but  keep a smile. Because You will make it, if you do not give up.  ~Amy Jane

The Book Has been Published!


Hello My friends and Family,

I am so excited to tell you “A New Song” Has finally Been published!!!

I am not sure where to start. When I was asked to contribute to this book, I became excited at the opportunity to share my story, God’s story!   But as I actually sat down to write it, I became afraid, that I would not be able to convey the message properly and that I could disappoint those who may be expecting me to write a masterpiece. I am presently struggling with some books that I also am writing.  I am sure God is using this opportunity as a push. He is telling me to just do it, while using this opportunity to boost my confidence too. I know God wants me to share this story in any way that I can. He is opening new doors daily, not just for me but for you as well. We just need to walk through them – even if at times we have to crawl through.  Whatever it takes for us to move forward, keep growing, and to help others do the same.

Any ways!   Here is a note from the main editor, with the book Poster below.

Hi Everyone,

I just heard from our printer about the book’s final price for 192 pages with contributions from 53 authors, 17 photographers/artists, and a beautiful color cover with semi-exposed Wire-0 binding that allows the book to open flat.

If we order 500– the cost will be $15/book
If we order 1,000 — the cost will be $13/book

So far, I have received orders for 237.  Please let me know how many you plan to order so that I can get the best price.

Thank you,

Diane Kulkarni

A New Song Poster

I’m  so happy that is is finally here!!  There are so many awesome stories besiides mine in this book. It is a great Testament of God’s work!!! Please  check it out for yourself!  Email Diane or call her and place your order. I don’t thing it is selling online anywhere.. 😦

I can’t wait to share my story with you all!!   I love you, and God Loves you too!!

What you need to know about me is!


The main things you need to know about me are: I am extremely loyal; I love beyond most people’s comprehension; I trust to easy, and expect trust, I keep my word and promises to the best of my ability; I will defend a friend / family members if that means loosing every one else’s favor and if need be to the point of death. (which I pray there won’t be a need for). If you burn (figure of speech) me I tend to give 3 chances after that I am done. I adore leanring and trying new things and meeting new people.  While enjoying what I have…

I am who I am Thanks to Jesus, I will never turn my back on my Father God who gave me the life and love I have today!

I am a passionet person who when attacked with a bad situation, sickness, ect.. I will fight to win! I don’t know what it means to give up in a battle…

I am not obbesive or cazy, I know how to let go and move on. And I will. Once I have made up my mind that is it. That is why I take my time in thinking things through when making decions. I like to pray and makesure they will be the right ones… Sometimes however one does not have that opion and I must just go with the flow. Which has been what all year has been like. But Praise God I am getting by day by day, and with Joy and blessings!!! I am a very blessed and My Lord takes care of me!

He wants to do the same for you if you will let Him….

I am Home again.


Howdy Folks,

How are you doing?  I am home again. I have been home for a little bit. As soon as I got home I caught a bad cold that lasted almost three weeks on and off. I am all better now. I have been trying to get adjusted to the time and schedule again. It has been pretty hard. But I have a plan. (Yes, another one) I am gonna start it tomorrow. I wrote up a schedule and I am gonna work hard on following it. I pray with this I will use my time more efficiently.

On my trip I printed my books “The Princess And the Mirror” and my Short Story “A Knight All Along” I got a lot done with both. I have not had the time to type up the edits yet. However I am still working on them. “A Knight All Along” Is turning out to be as long as a book. I may make it one latter. I am pushing it back a bit on my list of things to do.

Since I have my other 3 Books “Miracles Still Happen Today”, “A Crimson Star”, and  “The Princess and The Mirror” that need to be finished first.. It is a good project. When I get stuck it keeps me going but it is not a main project as of yet.

Anyways, I am still working on my books. I am going to work harder. I will give up some things to get them done if need be. I am trying really hard not to get distracted with life.. I am not Dating on purpose though I did want to. I decided when the time is right things will fall into place. God’s timing is best.. If you have any questions for me you can ask here http://www.formspring.me/AnjiuS anonymously or not. I would be glad to try and answer them for you.

Make sure if you have faith in God to go here too. http://deeplyrootedinhim.wordpress.com

God Bless you, Good night!
